NIKE ZOOM ROOKIE The Nike Zoom Rookie is a hybrid design in Nike’s Air Penny line that first debuted in 2011, combining the silhouettes of the Nike Air Flight One and Nike Air Go LWP. The resulting sneaker has been one of the more celebrated new-era Foamposite releases.

It took a while for us to finally see proof of the inevitable when the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP only recently showed up for previews in its ‘blackout’ edition, but maybe that’s because Nike Sportswear wanted to take care of all the other basics first. We got a couple of blue pairs referencing Penny Hardaway’s brilliant mid-’90s stint with the Orlando Magic and a couple white/black designs including one glow-in-the-dark Halloween release. This, then, is the ‘other’ white and black Zoom Rookie, a pair that rounds out the 2011 releases with a crisp high contrast look that could have been a perfect thematic expression of either equinox. Instead, we get them on the winter solstice one year before the world’s supposed to end, which is probably best since you’ll have a bit of extra time to rock the full range of adult sizes from NikeStore or get your pair on eBay.

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Blackout’ – New Images

December 20th, 2011 by | 8 comments

Any basketball sneaker worth its salt is bound to end up in a blackout colorway, and in the case of one of Nike Sportswear’s finest hybrid designs to date, it just happens to be a bit more expressive than on most. That’s because the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP‘s black and Anthracite colorup has so much shine on its Foamposite sections, that they give off the sense of being cast in a mineral straight from the earth. So in the right light, these are one of the ‘brightest’ blackout sneakers in recent memory, but in other conditions they’re as dark as a coal mine. This new set of images, then, is something like a canary to notify you that something big is coming up soon; heed the call and click through to see more, and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US release date. via Air-Randy

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP – White – Black | Arriving At Retailers

December 10th, 2011 by | 22 comments

nike zoom rookie wht blk ms1 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP   White   Black | Arriving At Retailers

The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP kicked off with the sick Glow-In-The-Dark colorway, but if you missed out on that release, the White/Black ‘Oreo’ is the perfect second option. They appear pretty much the same (sans the glow), but do have a whiter Foamposite upper compared to Luminous Pearl. It’ll be tough to fit any extra kicks into your Holiday sneaker shopping, but it’ll be hard to turn these down. Retailers like BXSports have begun to receive their stock of this late-December release, so check out the new close-up shots after the jump and let us know if you’re looking to cop the ‘Oreo’ Zoom Rookies in the comments below. Can’t wait like Bart Scott? Grab a pair now on eBay.

Sneaker News just scooped you on the December 21st release date for the white/black colorway, which means that’s almost certainly the final Nike Zoom Rookie LWP drop of 2011. So while we’re waiting for days to get longer after the winter solstice, we’ll also be eagerly awaiting the arrival of yet more brightness in the form of the ‘Dynamic Blue’ Zoom Rookies. This palette has a frosty appearance that’d be perfect any time during the winter season, though their vibrant primary color is also the kind of thing you’d expect to see during the hottest summer days. So you’re looking now at one of those shoes that you can not only keep in your rotation, but one that’ll continue to break necks even as they age. Check them out in more images after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date. via Kicks-crew

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Dynamic Blue’ – New Images

The Nike Air Penny series was all about its signature shades of blue, from Varsity Royal to Atlantic Blue and even the rarely seen Dark Neon Royal. Nike Sportswear also sought to raise the profile on the relatively new Binary Blue shade by adding it to one of the upcoming Nike Zoom Rookie LWPs, but this is the first time a wholly new shade has been launched for NSW’s latest basketball-based hybrid. The Dynamic Blue hue at work on the Foamposite sections of this new Zoom Rookie is aptly named, a high energy shade that combined with Wolf Grey accents and a translucent outsole makes for an intensely crisp final product that could be the model’s best GR yet. Click through to see a bunch of new images and stick with Sneaker News for updates on these and all the other Zoom Rookie release dates. via Air-Randy

Designer Marc Dolce Discusses The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP

November 2nd, 2011 by | 20 comments

marc dolce nike zoom rookie lwp Designer Marc Dolce Discusses The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP

The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP had some big shoes to fill, following the immense success of the Air 1/2 Cent and the legendary yet short-lived Air Penny line. Nike designer Marc Dolce recently discussed the design inspiration and detailing behind the Zoom Rookie LWP, which launched the first release in the ‘Glow In The Dark’ colorway last week. Combining elements of the Air Penny line like Foamposite, a carbon-fiber shank plate, and inner bootie fit, the Zoom Rookie LWP is as much of a performance shoe as it is a Lifestyle sneaker, so it’s only a matter of time before we see these on the feet on an NBA player (Gilbert Arenas, perhaps?). Continue reading for the full video with Marc Dolce and let us know which your favorite Zoom Rookie colorway is. via SC.
