Making its debut last year with releases that included “Binary Blue” and “Glow in the Dark” editions, Penny Hardaway’s Nike Zoom Rookie LWP returns for Fall/Winter 2012 in a new “Matte Red” colorway. Inspired by past Penny-popularized silhouettes like the Air Flight One, Air Up and Air GO LWP, this particular version of the Nike Sportswear hybrid is reminiscent of the player-exclusive “Memphis Express” that Hardaway donned for last fall’s Tournament of the Stars Basketball Classic in Louisiana. Pairing a red Foamposite shell with matching pods, a nubuck eyestay, and a mesh tongue, the release features Nike‘s Zoom cushioning alongside an icy rubber outsole and minimal black accents. Retailing for $200 USD, the “Matte Red” Nike Zoom Rookie LWP is now available from Kith NYC‘s Manhattan and Brooklyn storefronts.
