Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Knicks’ Customs By Jason Negron

nike air foamposite one knicks customs 6 Nike Air Foamposite One Knicks Customs By Jason Negron

If only Jason Negron made these customs back in 2004-2005, Penny Hardaway would have rocked these when he was playing for the New York Knicks. Jason Negron, the ‘re-animator’ of Foamposites, hits us over seven years after Penny’s NYK tenure with these ‘Knicks’ customs, which feature a timeless Royal Air Foamposite One with orange dyed soles and matching accents on the heel-tab, tongue-tab, and on the wavy stitched applique on the tongue. Anything Blue and Orange seems to take a shoe to another level of awesomeness, and this thorough detailing of the ‘Knicks’ custom Foamposite One is proof that there are still more Foamposites to be made, despite recent comments made by the sneaker community that the Foamposite may have seen one too many releases. For Knicks fans, lovers of Blue/Orange colorways, or Foamposite fanatics, this latest Jason Negron creation is one that’ll stop you in your tracks, so check out the detailed gallery below and let us know if you think these are better than his Gucci or Light-Up customs.

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Eggplant’ – New Images

January 12th, 2012 by | 28 comments

nike zoom rookie lwp eggplant new images Nike Zoom Rookie LWP Eggplant   New Images

Short, but sweet. That concise descriptive can be used to summarize the entire Nike Air Penny line, which is just four models deep (with the Air Foamposite One unofficially tagging along), but don’t think for a second that it’s size is directly proportional to its significance. After the Air Jordan, the Air Penny is the most celebrated signature footwear line of the pre-Kobe/LeBron era, and new developments like the Air 1/2 Cent, Zoom Rookie LWP, and resurgence of the Air Foamposite One are reasons why it maintains that aura of supremacy today. Sole Collector recently completed a nice interview with Penny Hardaway, providing a quick glimpse of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Eggplant’ that we showed you as far back as September. No word on a release yet, so check out the extra angle below and let us know what you think.

December 19th, 2011 by | 8 comments

nike zoom rookie lwp white silver pe 5 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP   White   Silver | Penny Hardaway PE

The ‘Memphis Express‘ and ‘Memphis Blues‘ PE colorways of the Nike Zoom Rookie were special requests made by Penny Hardaway – he wanted matching shoes for his upcoming charity exhibition basketball games. Those 1-of-1 PEs are in the sole ownership of Penny, but the most recent Zoom Rookie PE, a White/Silver pair worn by Penny during an All-Star charity game in China (which featured Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman), was given to a lucky spectator. This latest Penny-only PE features a White Foamposite upper with matte silver pods with a translucent outsole. To top it off, the Zoom Rookie PEs were autographed by Penny himself! Check out the extra shots of the White/Silver PE after the jump and let us know if you’d like for this colorway to release. via hk-kicks.

d12 all star recap summary Dwight Howards D12 Celebrity All Star Game Recap

The ‘other’ NBA season continued down in Florida when Dwight Howard hosted the D12 Foundation Celebrity All-Star Game at the the University of Central Florida. This game featured a bit of a twist; the two teams were divided up into New School and Old School, with the former consisting of current NBA players and the latter featuring former NBA stars like Penny Hardaway and Steve Francis. The kicks spotted on court had a heavy ‘Air Penny’ theme, as Penny himself wore the Nike Zoom Rookie ‘Memphis Blues’ during warm-ups and switched up to the all-white Foamposite One 1-of-1 PEs for the game. Other notables included Lil’ Wayne’s Binary Blue Zoom Rookies (he coached the ‘New School’ squad) and Earl Clark’s Glow In The Darks, Gilbert Arenas’ Air Jordan VI ‘Orlando’ Customs, Steve Franchise’s Air Jordan 8.0, Quentin Richardson’s Air Jordan XI ‘DMP’, and Dwight Howard’s adiPower Howard. Check out the additional images from this great charity event below and let us know who takes the crown for the best kicks! Thanks to @notmattg!

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Memphis Blues’

October 31st, 2011 by | 17 comments

nike zoom rookie lwp memphis blues pe 03 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP Memphis Blues

The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP officially hit the open market this past Thursday when the limited ‘Glow In The Dark’ colorway finally hit stores. Those who passed on this release were probably awaiting the mid-November arrival of the ‘Binary Blue’ colorway, which represents the classic ‘Orlando’ theme we often associate to all Nike Air Penny shoes. However, during the Nike x SC event over the weekend, Penny Hardaway was sporting another PE dubbed the ‘Memphis Blues’ – a 1-of-1 made for Mr. One Cent himself. It features a tonal royal blue upper paired acutely with a translucent outsole for the simplistic approach typically implemented for Foamposite releases (tonal uppers, translucent outsoles). Do you prefer the tonal blue ‘Memphis Blues’ PE or the ‘Memphis Express‘, painted in a vibrant red? Let us know your thoughts below. via SoleCollector.

Is it even possible that another pair of Nike Zoom Rookie LWPs could have stolen the show on a day when a sick Orlando ‘home’-styled colorway dropped among five all-new takes on Nike Sportswear’s Penny Hardaway greatest hits?  That depends what you think of the brief glimpse of an all-blue Zoom Rookie worn by Anfernee himself during the release event of his special five-pack at Nike Las Vegas.  This event featured our first look at all the new Air Foamposite Ones and Pros we showed you earlier today, and it looks like even more’s on the way for 2012 with a ‘Think Pink’ Foam One peeking through a case that’s been stuffed with about two grand of NSW’s foamy favorites.  Check out a bunch of photos from this weekend’s event after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for all the 2012 Foamposite release dates.  via US10

The legend of Penny Hardaway has never been more celebrated than it has this year. With countless Foamposite One/Pro releases already occurring throughout the year, Nike Sportswear will finally introduce to the public the Nike Zoom Rookie – the second Penny-centric hybrid model combining his Rookie Year kicks.
