Penny Hardaway the player is now Penny Hardaway the coach. Returning to his alma mater of Memphis, his Nike Zoom Rookie hybrid returns to retail, recalling the kicks Penny put on as a pro right after earning his stripes as a Tiger.

Taking heavily from the Nike Air Flight One and Go LWP, Foamposite technology both modernizes and denotes this Penny pair that first hit the web in 2011. Upon its initial release, the retro-inspired hybrid was a steady seller, gaining acclaim off court by Penny purists while also seeing wear in NBA action.

Back again, the Nike Zoom Rookie has landed in a Black/White-University Red colorway at select NSW retailers such as Rock City Kicks. Retail runs a steep $210 a pop. Peep ’em in detail below.
