In March, Sneaker News gave you a look at the Nike Zoom Rookie, the next signature hybrid shoe to come out of the Nike Air Penny line. Penny Hardaway’s Nike Basketball pedigree is among one of the greatest of all time, and with the success of his most recent hybrid shoe (the Nike Air 1/2 Cent), the Zoom Rookie could not have come at a better time. The Nike Zoom Rookie features design elements from the sneakers Penny wore during his rookie season in 1993-94, namely the Nike Air Go LWP and Nike Air Flight One. Sneaker News previously showed you an interesting yellow/black sample pair of the Zoom Rookie, but here we get a look at a White/Metallic Silver colorway as well as a tonal red version that is currently set for an August 2011 release. Check out the extra image below and let us know what you think of this next Penny Hardaway hybrid shoe. via Iam1Cent.
