LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant are without question three of the most powerful forces in the NBA, traveling to unforeseen heights that few other have ever reached. A numerous collection of MVP awards, All-Star accolades, post-season successes, and international presence have placed a cosmic spotlight on these three mega-stars, and to celebrate their 2012 NBA All-Star Game selections is a special ‘galaxy’ theme inspired by space exploration and the supernova. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII, Nike Zoom KD IV, and Nike LeBron 9 all feature the inter-galactic imagery with gleaming glow-in-the-dark outsoles and unique mission patches adorning each distinct shoe. The Nike Basketball 2012 All-Star Collection will become available on February 25th on the eve of the All-Star Weekend’s main event at select Nike Basketball retailers, so continue reading for a detailed look at this astronomical collection below.

This is great to see that new shoes are dropping and getting attention and not always retro (although retros are cool too).
So the soles glow in the dark? Childish shit if you ask me. Bron 9 looks the best, no matter the colorway, imo.
The Lebron 9's are the most eyecatching one. But you only get to rock them on the court, or if you're some hip hop dancer then that's fine too! Else you'll be looking like Ronald McD.
matha fatha. they all glow in the dark soles i thought only the lebrons! now Iam gonna be sick choosing WTF.
matha fatha. they all glow in the dark soles i thought only the lebrons! now Iam gonna be sick choosing WTF. where's the star of group? where's the GALAXY FOAMPOSITES!!!?
Like the KD's so I didn't take any chances and got them early. Now I got to get the Kobe's cause I like me a lot. After the Cannon's and how Lebron's fit I got turned off. As for the foams....too much hype and if you saw the new pics I don't like the toe that much.
Honestly i like the KD's more... but if i had to choose between these and the foamposites i would choose the foamposites
like the idea but doubt i will cop...the bron looks nice..wish the kobe was that bright orange than i would consider but the space theme on the outer..pass. count me in for ROTD! love red kb kix for sum reason!
I would venture to say that the ASG Kobe VIIs impress me the least. If the same theme were to be applied to its predecessor, then I might be interested. IMO, the vertical lines on the upper detract from the graphic.
damn...this is probably the most creative line of all star kicks that have been put out. all 3 shoes are niiiice.
In my opinion, the Kobe's do the whole Outer space/all star theme Justice! the profile even looks like something that's floating in our orbit... The lebrons are my least favorite. It's more of the same "all star" look.
Don't get me wrong; the whole concept was executed superbly from shoe to shoe. However, if I had a choice between getting two of the three, Kobe's would be the odd man out.
