Sole Collector recently sat down with Nike Sportswear Footwear and Apparel Design Lead Marc Dolce to talk about the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP.

The kicks are a combination of the three shoes former Orlando Magic star Penny Hardaway rocked in his first two years in the league before receiving his own signature line from Nike.  Based on the Air GO LWP, Air Up, and Air Flight One, the Rookie also incorporates the use of Foamposite, a Penny favorite and something immediately associated with the retired star.
