The red joints look like the red version of these.

Hopefully they drop something like that and it isn't just a sample. They looking fire.

I still can't get over the fact that shoe is inspired by shoes Penny wore in his second season not his rookie season. But the shoe does have potential 


Exactly, the Go LWP came out in the 94-95 regular season and the Flight One came out for the 95 Playoffs,He also wore Air Ups and Air Lambaste that year  Pennys rookie year was 93-94 and he wore Air Force Mid, Air Swift and Jordan IX in his rookie year ,its pretty sad that Nike probably doesnt even realize that these shoes theyre using for inspiration werent even from the Rookie Year.....

So that's bad enough, but like I said in my original post..

How exactly do the Foam Ones fit into the theme of Penny's rookie shoes? I'm guessing they just used the Foamposite element because it's easy to work around.

I think you all are reading too much into the name of the shoe. It's just another half cent mash-up of all his shoes. They named it the Zoom Rookie. Were yall complaining about the name of the half cents because they weren't fractionally correct since they were made of more than 2 shoes?

how i wish penny wasn't robbed of the prime of his career,we could've been enjoying the retro of penny V's or VI's instead of settling for hybrids and mash-ups.

same but i think doing the IV right this time and the non-numbered pennys would do well for both us and Nike
