Originally debuted back in August of 2011 by Penny Hardaway himself, the “Memphis Express” Nike Zoom Rookie LWP is set to make its way to retail in the near future.
Worn by Penny in Lake Charles, Louisiana in the 17th annual Tournament of the Stars Basketball Classic to benefit the area’s “Raising Dollars for Scholars” education program, the kicks come decked out in bright red to match his Memphis Express squad’s all-over “1 Cent” print uniforms. Differing slightly from the metallic pair seen on court, the release version features a matte red Foamposite shell upper alongside an icy outsole, black branding details and additional red appearances on the mesh sleeve, laces, lining, pods and nubuck detailing.
Set to retail for $200, stay tuned for concrete release info regarding the Memphis Express Nike Zoom Rookie as the kicks are set to hit select Nike Sportswear accounts soon. Buy now at KickSole.com.
