Future Colorways of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP, Air Foamposite Pro, and Air Foamposite One
People knew that the Sole Collector x Zoom Rookie LWP would be released at the Penny Hardaway event that took place this past Saturday at Nike Las Vegas. People knew that attendees would have the opportunity to purchase a Penny Signature Pack with five Penny Hardaway shoes if the attendees won a raffle. Heck, people even knew that Penny Hardaway and the lead designer of the Zoom Rookie LWP, Mark Dolce, would be in atterndance. But what actually went down at the event probably took a majority of the sneakerhead world by surprise. Product Creation Footwear Lead of NSW (the Nike Sportswear division that handles Nike Sportswear Basketball and Football products) Gentry Humphrey used the event as a platform to show the masses the Foamposite products coming in 2012.
Of course, as the event was centered around the Zoom Rookie LWP, Gentry showed off some upcoming colorways of the Penny hybrid, including an all-white version, a “Dynamic Blue” version, a Black/Anthracite version, a White/Black version, and the “Binary Blue” colorway that I showed you in a previous post. The Air Foamposite Pro got some love, as Gentry brought out a “Metallic Silver” Foamposite Pro colorway with a translucent red sole and other red accents. But Gentry really left an impact on the audience with the number of Air Foamposite One colorways that he revealed throughout the night. For one, he confirmed the existence of the “Metallic Red” Foamposite One, and further revealed that the colorway will release on Valentine’s Day 2012. Other colorways that Gentry brought in his trunk of Foamposites include an iridescent “USA” edition (which even has “USA” written on the back), the “Electrolime” edition that was previously rumored to be released in 2012, a pink “Kay Yow” edition, and a yellow ”Golden State Warriors” edition that honors the team that initially drafted Penny Hardaway. In addition, Gentry wore a Foamposite One that he dubbed the “Galaxy All-Star” colorway. As of right now, that Foamposite One is not releasing. Look for everything to hit retailers at various points in 2012, or in some cases, even sooner. We at Sole Camp will make sure to keep you informed as Foamposite mania hits the hardest it ever has next year. Take a look below for more images of Penny Hardaway shoes revealed at Saturday’s event.
