The other worldly Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ Gentry Humphrey was spotted wearing at a recent event in Las Vegas has apparently been scrapped, no longer a part of the Nike Sportswear 2012 release calendar.  But that doesn’t mean the Swoosh isn’t ready with some intergalactic planetary funk in the form of a cutting edge basketball design.  The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Big Bang’ is a superb example of how to reach beyond the typical inspiration for sneaker colorways without getting overly convoluted or bogged down in esoteric references.  The blazing colorway is something like the star from which each atom once eminated, the sewn-on tongue tag a first for this year’s LeBron James signature, and the groovy space image insoles finish off the theme perfectly.  This is a shoe that represents a shift in how we’ve come to think about the way basketball shoe palettes come together, one that reflects the impressive technical prowess of this design and one that fits the burst of energy when LeBron’s creating on the court.  Click through to see more and let us know how this ‘Big Bang’ LeBron 9 compares to the ‘All Star’ edition we just showed you.  via Marquee Sole

Nike is havin a sick year design wise. Both the KD 4 and the LBJ 9 design ideas have had amazing creativity! Keep it up.

Nike's been using this bright neon orange theme on too much lately..they shoulda made the laces just like the insole..like a watch the throne effect but galaxy style..they're tough but don't compare to chinas..or cannons really..but I'm not a lebron guy

Dope tongue, dope insole, dope use of the carbon fiber plate with the galaxy look. Job well done. P.S. does anyone else really like the Pro Combat?

Dope tongue, dope insole, dope use of the carbon fiber plate with the galaxy look. Job well done. P.S. is anyone else really feeling the Pro Combat on the inside? Idk why but it's one of my favorite features about the shoe.

All the lebron 9s so far have sucked major ass. These though are a must cop for me. Reminds me of the Human Torch AM 95s which I also own.
