Nike Zoom Rookie LWP – Varsity Red/Black

October 24, 2012 | 5

The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP has had a love/hate relationship with consumers since its first release but has still continued to produce strong colorways, including the upcoming varsity red/black mockup. Clearer images have just surfaced, giving a glimpse at the tint of the red used along with the additional laces provided.

Originally these sneakers have been viewed as just another tonal colorway, with an all varisty red upper, minor black detailing and a full icy sole, like the Memphis Blue pair released earlier this year. Instead, the sneaker looks to have additional light green laces, indicating a possible Christmas theme.

The shoe is still set to drop Saturday, November 10, at select NSW retailers for $200 a pair.
