Custom “Halloween 2” aka “Un-Halloween” Nike Zoom Rookie Revealed

Custom Un-Halloween Zoom Rookie

Those who have been following the progression of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP recall that it entered the scene with a couple of great colorways. Two very memorable colors were themed for Halloween; the HOH Exclusive Black / Max-Orange release and the Luminous Pearl colorway. The above takes elements of both of those kicks and combines them in a very unique way. The base all black rookie is transforme in the following manner; the sidewall pods are painted pumpkin with creme colored glow in the dark craters while the sole, mesh and accents also glow. The result is a mean, clean, kickass custom for Halloween! Check out more images and place an order after the jump. Prices include the Black Zoom Rookie, check the “Send in Your Rookie” listing to pay for just the artwork.

A black Zoom Rookie is used as the base, the foamposite portions painted a robust pumpkin color, and sidewall pods are painted creme and treated further to glow in the dark.

The result is a very ominous dish indeed! See more images after the jump  and purchase your pair before the 10th to receive in time for Halloween.
