The “Memphis Tigers” Nike Zoom Rookie is Available Now
From standout hometown player to rising coach, Penny Hardaway‘s roots at the University of Memphis run deep — so does his connection to Nike’s famed Foamposite tech, putting it on the map through his Foamposite One signature sneaker in 1997.
Now, after said Foamposite One arrived decked out a Tigers-themed colorway earlier this year, the Foamposite-loaded Zoom Rookie —hybrid design from the Nike Penny line that combines the Air Flight One and Air Go LWP — is getting a similar treatment. This time the offering arrives anchored in white, with the color hitting the inner bootie’s mesh, outsole, tongues, pulls, pods and leather overlays. The Foamposite shell upper arrives in Uni Blue with dark blue tiger decal, and the same duo of hues hitting the forefoot Swoosh and tongue motif.
Pairs are slated to release at select Swoosh hoops houses like Jimmy Jazz on June 1st for $220 USD, so grab a detailed look below, and keep it locked on our Nike Release Dates pages for updates to the retailers stocking the drop!
