This Nike Zoom Rookie is for MemphisRelease: 1 June 2019
After returning to his alma mater as the new head coach of the University of Memphis in 2018, Penny Hardaway and his Tigers are now on track to have the top recruiting class – and the school's best ever – for the 2019/20 season. Ahead of what could be a historic season for the school, Nike have hooked Hardaway and company up with a special rendition of the Penny-inspired Zoom Rookie.
The hybrid Foamposite-centric design was clearly crafted with the squad in mind, and not only comes in a Vast Grey/Photo Blue/Black colourway, it also sports tiger stripes throughout the Foamposite portions of the upper. Per usual, Penny's logo graces the tongue, while 'Flight' text hits the heel pull tabs as a further nod to the Air GO LWP and Air Flight One – both of which heavily inspired the Zoom Rookie's aesthetic.
The Zoom Rookie 'Memphis' is set to drop June 1 for $220.
