Sneakerheads had January to catch our breaths after an utterly immense spread of heat during the holiday season, but Nike has cranked it back up already to the point where it’s almost starting to feel like Christmas in February. From the Black History Month 2012 models to those commemorating this year’s NBA All-Star Game and a bunch of key drops in between, February has brought us a ton of pleasant surprises including the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ releasing along with the rest of the ASG buffet. Once thought to be a concept sample never to see the light of retail, this first-ever application of a graphical print to the original Foamposite silhouette keeps in line with the NASA-inspired theme, and might just be the single most impressive design we’ve seen for NBA All-Star 2012. Once reported as a Saturday drop, NikeStore now expects to have these on Thursday, February 23rd, and you can see some crisp new images of the supernova-emblazoned ‘Galaxy’ Foamposite Ones after the jump.
These shits sick. Most motherf@#kers talking shit but I bet they be the ones who buy thems shits and try to sell them for a grip. The other people talking smack about the price because they broke. A true collector/sneakerhead doesn't buy them because of all this bull. They buy them because of the love they have for the sneaker or sneakers and all you people trying to come up by buying them and making a profit, go jump off a bridge and let the people who appreciate the kicks buy and enjoy them.
Funny... Funny how all these same mufukas was hyped ovr the 4's, now, no one even mentions them.. Better for me! And hopefully, I can land these as well... Crazy ass month! Gotta take care of wifey too, cant forget that! Every week this month is a potential 2 to $300 purchase on deck. whens the last time that happened?????? SMMFH
Couldn't 1 be creative and do this to 1 of your like 3 or 4 groupie pairs of same lookin model joints though it doesn't look that hard to paint some circles and fade in different colors lool. Man where's the creativity must we all were the same shoes immean foams thou they aint that raw foreal thou.
Idc i really want these, for get the cements I'll take these Instead, I really hope I can get my hands on a pair. To all Re-Sellers #PleaseKillyourselves
Would love to cop these Foams, they look dope as hell and I would definitely rock these. Unfortunately I'm European so I cannot get them. I wish the best of luck for the ones who can get them and PLEASE don't be a greedy douchebag and resell them on Ebay! With all the hype going around these I'm already seeing them being sold for 4 figure sums... Peace
Skipped on the reds because they were too varsity red for me, I prefer a more dull red that changes color like the pine foams I really want these, y'all can keep your gangbang blood red foamposites... I'm going with these astronauts
OMG! I WAS going to cop them Big Bang Lebron 9s..BUT FUCK THAT! These are just sick man!They look waaay better than the samples they showed before. AUTO-COP!!
Im dam sure gonna b online wedn nite waitin fa these to release. Hope eastbay get a few pair so nikestore wont crash
How much r they gonna be? Glad I passed on the red joints. Father-Son-Holy Ghost. Dr Theresa Ann Garrison. Peace !!
23rd? I thought the Nike tweet said midnight on the 24th? So is it dropping Wednesday or Thursday at midnight?
these are by far the best asg release this year and to top it off nobody will get them! I can hear the crying now. Wuestion is..if you do all the crying what the baby going to do?
my friend at house of hoops told me his nike rep told him that their only gonna release in stores in Orlando an DC and if your only worry is what can u wear with these than u shouldn't even b a sneaker-head. gotta have swagg
If Penny was actually playing in the ASG and wore these would be awesome. This type of shoe is for one time wear by one person. But since the hype machine is rolling, of course Nike will release them. Easy pass for me. People stopped wearing dunks and air forces because of all the outlandish colorways. Even though foams have been ODed lately on colors, at least they have all kept the simple design. This is a collector's item, not something to wear. I can't wait to see all the hypebeasts with bus passes wearing these stains in brown soles looking like their a 4 year old shoe in April.
These are too official "Good Money". Dudes with no steez is so worried about how these gone look gay or females not gone wanna talk cause you got these on.Thinking these are gay cause you have sexuality problems. You can wear these with just about anything if you know how to wear it. These joints are super tough and Im copping me a pair.
2 foams, 2 lebrons, and 1 kobe for me. These will be an instant classic, hopefully just limited and not super limited.
Damn if I new these would actually see the light of day and look this good, I might have skipped getting the red foams. Either way I'm going to try and get these. Sorry Lebron I was looking forward to getting your all-star edition.
these are awesome. the hype basically ensures i wont get a air for retail, but i will prolly get killed on the resale. but i am going to try my hardest to get these. i love the way they look, this version is better than the first. its a clean looking shoe, and i wouldnt mind wearing it. keep the fit basic, and you can make this shoe really pop.
size 8 here's the size chart conversion from Nike's site... http://help-us.nike.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3...

Yep try 750 to a stack..400 seems about right but too much for me!!! Wish I could get them too but oh well guess these will be my yotr 7s this year..the one that got away and they releasing on my born day#sucks to be average!
