It looks like this year’s pack of All-Star sneakers from Nike Basketball will not be a straight forward reprisal of the ‘Galaxy’ theme. Some new shots just popped up of the Nike KD V from the group, with the most recent angles suggesting a sort of alien-theme thanks to the “Area 72″ logo stamp on the inside. This little detail also puts the possible ASG release of the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Fighter Jet’ in better context, that sneaker perhaps representing the military forces guarding the secret base of Area 72. Check out the shots after the jump and tell us if you like how the Nike KD V ‘Area 72′ is shaping up.

Someone please help me out here, because I've never heard of Area 72....Everyone has heard of Area 51 & as far as I know it has no ties to Texas, Where the ASG will be...
Yes, I know about the NASA space center is in H-Town.. But if that's the Best IllumiNike's got, then they are seriously reaching for the stars on this one...
an alien theme?? Doesn't really matter what theme Nike comes out with. PPl will eat it up and all the ASG releases will sell out
SMH... you kids need to learn the history before you respond... Actually, Blue Ribbon Sports was founded in January of 1964, then officially became Nike in May of 1978, The first time the Swoosh was used was in 1971... SMH... So Now what's Area 72..
