Will You Wear Nike Zoom Rookie In The Dark?
The latest incarnation from the Penny Hardaway Nike signature collection comes in the form of a radioactive looking sneaker that bears the name Nike Zoom Rookie. The Nike Zoom Rookie pays homage to Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway and the sneakers he wore during his rookie season way back in 1993. While Penny was an odds on favorite to supersede Michael Jordan when he burst on the scene, his playing career was cut short due to injury. If your only memory of Anfernee were his fleeting days on the New York Knicks, you only know a shell of the swingman that was. Brush up on a little YouTube history, and get ready for a pair of glow-in-the-dark kicks that are suitable for grown men. The most buzzed about iteration of the Nike Zoom Rookie comes in the form of the pearl white pair pictured below, which transforms to the glowing pair pictured above. These are certainly not the pair to wear if you’re planning a bank heist or any other late-night nefarious act, but if you’re looking to shine in a sneaker friendly club, this is your pair. The Nike Zoom Rookie hits select retailers today. Will you be wearing these by cover of the night, or is 180 greenbacks too steep?
