When Nike’s Galaxy pack hit during All Star Weekend 2012, it was total mayhem, as one riot that made national headlines erupted in Orlando. This time around, the Nike Zoom Rookie PRM gets a release faithful to the original with the celestial print on the Foamposite portions of the upper, “Remove Before Flight” detailing on the tongue, heel tabs, and removable ring.
