Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ – Glow In The Dark

Foamposite was first developed during the early part of the 1990′s by Nike’s Advanced Product Engineering Team. What they were searching for was a lighter and less labor-intensive material to suit footwear construction, and what they found was someone so out-of-the-ordinary that it would potentially alter the horizon of footwear development and design. However, the new-age Foamposite never truly collided with the conventions of leather and mesh as it never really posed a threat to some major divisions of footwear development such as running, which depended more on breathability and lightness (which mesh had a firm advantage over any other material). In fact, Foamposite operated on a plane all on its own appearing only sparingly since its debut on the Nike Air Foamposite One, and even then, those models were never widely embraced; it was too different from what we were accustomed to, almost like it came from outer space.

A lot’s changed since Foamposite was first introduced to Nike Footwear; it’s hardly a cornerstone of performance these days (that sector is dominated by the modular construction of Hyperfuse, Flywire, and Lunar), but it has captured the essence of sneakerheadism so firmly because it acutely defines the passion for the out-of-the-ordinary and the visually unforgettable. Only until 2010 did the Air Foamposite begin the make a dent in the mainstream, with the release of the Copper and the re-issue of the Eggplants, and in 2011, Nike Sportswear re-opened the Foam factory with six solid releases – three ‘Ones’ and three ‘Pros’ – that became one of the widely celebrated releases of the year. In just the sixth week of the 2012, four releases have either released, been confirmed, or have been rumored, but none has been as energetic and exciting as the upcoming ‘Galaxy’ release, which is set for a limited release on February 23rd (Nikestore reports a release on the 24th, but we’ll clarify that for you very soon).

Using the ‘supernova’ as the core concept for the entire 2012 NBA All-Star collection, Nike Basketball raised the Foamposite to new heights by administering a visual graphic on the upper, replacing the lustrous metallic appeal of tonal paintjobs is a wide imagery of the Galaxy, dotted with shining stars and milky ways. Standing above the upper is an outsole that is entirely treated with glow-in-the-dark infusion like the Nike Basketball 2012 All-Star signatures, something that has yet to be pictured until now. Attached to the shoe is a ‘Remove Before Flight’ flag, found cautiously attached to objects destined for space travel. Even seventeen years after the debut of the Air Foamposite One, the shoe continues to hold the attitude of being ahead of its time, but we’d say the definitive Foamposite release couldn’t have landed at a better moment. Continue reading for a detailed look at the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ as well as a first viewing of the glow-in-the-dark outsole and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding one of the best releases of 2012.

I skipped the metallic reds b/c they were too bright for me (same with electric green, retro blue and the upcoming banana foams) I was going with the white cements, but I haven't had new foams since the pines so these will be copped If you listen to drake, lil b, soulja boy and are under 18 and are hypebeast stay away please

Come on dude. ENOUGH. it's hyped beyond return now. I've pretty much accepted that i wont get these for under $500. i wish i had a mil. id buy like five pairs and sell them all for retail or below. I'd do the same with the cement IVs. just to prove hype and unnecessary inflation aint sht. But anyways. ill get off the fcking soapbox and save this sob story ass comment. lemme shut the fck up and say something regular....like "the shoes made me bust a nut!!", or "robocopped". And i hope someone dies with all the drops. so niggas at nike could get they lives right.

Yeah the Ghey Pride Galaxy foams looked like a Tellatubby fart fume colorway, they were just bad. These changes look a thousand times better. Wish it was illegal to resell shoes at higher than retail price sometimes, especially in this case.

They 'were' pride foams. U see them ugly shits last quarter. Now that new pics are shown with the new CHANGES, yes, they are dope.

BULL! Dudes was calling both versions pride foams. And to be real these are the same shit just with more blue and purple less white and more "STARS"… I said before ill say it again if the first thing come to your mind is g@y shit maybe you should question yourself.. cause you would be g@y wearing all black…SMFH HYPEBEAST

Drake

I gotta agree. That sounded like some hatin-ass jealous-type shit. While I agree with the post on the first part, the death wish was absolutely uncalled for.

The new version hasn't been around that long and I do not recall ever reading that people called the new version pride foams. Either way, I'd have all the pride in the world if I could get my hands on either version. I liked the first ones better.

josiah

no, they completely changed up the "galaxy" screen, the galaxy foams now are nothing like the samples except for the concept. and if u go back and read, u'll notice that everyone thought the concept was awesome, just poorly executed.
