    I guess we'll have to wait and see how the final version looks.

    I'm a bit confused. Where does the Foamposite element come in when talking Penny's rookie shoes? They were a good 4-5 years away at that point..

    If you look that red shoe looks like a foamposite mixed with the zoom rookie probably purely a sample we wont get.

    I still can't get over the fact that shoe is inspired by shoes Penny wore in his second season not his rookie season. But the shoe does have potential

    I'm pretty sure that that red shoe is another flavor of the Rookie LWP.The medial side of the sneaker has Foamposite like ridges.
    Remember that pic that had the white & black Rookie LWP on the table with the rest of those Foamposite samples (a guy was holding the toe if i'm not mistaken)?
    If you can find that pic then you'll see what I mean.
