The Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Asteroid” is being officially billed as the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Area 72″ by the Nike Sportswear team. That title links the sneakers to this year’s All-Star Game set of sneakers from the Swoosh, which is just a little bit curious considering how far after that weekend they’re actually releasing. Along with the official nickname comes some cool copy that helps tell the backstory of these new Nike Foams. Read that below and remember that you can grab them ahead of their release date now on eBay.

Nike Air Foamposite Pro
Color:
Fire/Black
Style Code: 616750-600
Release Date: 12/20/13
Price: $250

TRANSMISSION #7200001

Early morning signals from the Nike Space Program’s radio tower indicate that upon RayGun’s return mission into space, a boisterous explosion rocked his home planet. We’ve been informed that RayGun, the most storied inter-planetary explorer of the past decade, successfully fled his home moments prior to the disaster. His whereabouts are presently unknown. Transmissions to follow as details are uncovered.

TRANSMISSION #7200002

RayGun has been obtained and is currently being held in an Area 72 research facility. The subject is shaken but responsive. He fled with no belongings other than the Air Foamposite Pro Area 72. Presently, we are unsure of how the subject obtained the thought-to-be undiscovered artifact. We believe there is a connection between this artifact and the top-secret Area 72 Collection. RayGun will be held until further information is revealed. Transmissions to follow.

TRANSMISSION #7200003

Upon closer analysis, it is clear the Foamposite Pro Area 72 is the missing link from previous top-secret Area 72 Collection. Featuring an asteroid-inspired graphic application and a multi-colored, translucent outsole, the Foamposite Pro shares similar characteristics with past Area 72 findings. RayGun has implemented memories from his lost home on the insole. He will remain on Earth until further notice. This information must remain confidential until the duplication process is completed and the Air Foamposite Pro Area 72 is made available to the general public on December 20th 2013. No further transmissions to come.

I wouldn't buy them just because Nike tried to throw in this fake ass raygun crap. Where's the raygun logo? All star weekend was 10 months ago. MAYBE if they were Ones.....Maybe. either way they'll be on the shelves, unless people fall for the madness.

Wow.. just wow

nike realizing this shoe was not getting the reception it planned pulls out a late poorly written ray gun story to salvage the hype just before release, unbelievable, home planet blows up ray gun escapes with one last shoe ... sounds as desperate as nike is to put hype around this shoe,smfh nike has become a brand that cares more about creating hype than actually using high quality Materials and caring who actually gets the shoes.

@Boknowmagic  And at the end of the day I'm tired of seeing ppl bash other ppl over an opinion, If you like em, then cool, if you dont then cool, but if not, how does that reflect how much money a person makes?! Get real my nigga, nobody gives a shit about yo occupation, this site is about shoes, not Forbes.  . . .And btw Cincinatti hood aint shit compared to Memphis, where your comment would give you a warm introduction to them HEATERS.

@Boknowmagic  I'm a wealthy nigga. i could afford these i could buy 800 pairs of these at retail price and it wouldn't make a dent in my bank account literally.

@Boknowmagic  People who bash people for not loving a shoe usually hang out in stalls and suck Footlocker manager dicks Ijs. At the end of the day, what does not liking a shoe have to do with a persons income?? (BTW I own 9 pair of foams and IMO they could have picked a more fluid choice of colors, and this whole space theme is a repeat of some shit we already seen before, lack of creativity)
