hoh all star cancelled House Of Hoops Cancels Nike All Star Releases @ Various Locations

The mayhem surrounding the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ came to a boiling point last night, as various House of Hoops locations across the nation experienced immeasurable discord and dystopia that required intervention by police authorities. In reaction to the events and keeping the security and safety of the community in mind, Foot Locker released official information regarding the cancellation of the Nike All-Star releases at a number of their House of Hoops locations. The Galaxy Foamposites have generated an immense of amount of popularity that perhaps Nike and the retail locations did not anticipate, and sellers looking to cash in on the craze have begun to list their pick-ups on eBay – with one auction (most likely a guff listing) garnering an inordinate amount of attention that will likely see a final bid of over $100,000 (those Blackout XIs seem like a bargain now, don’t they?).

Up until last night, the release of the Pigeon SB Dunk was considered the most notorious sneaker release of this generation, but just to give you an idea of how it pales in comparison – there were many ‘Pigeon SB Dunk’ situations going on within one location, and what saddens the entire ordeal is that the shoe in question never even made it outside the store! Continue reading for the official press release by House of Hoops for all the cancelled spots (so you don’t head out there with high hopes) and let us know if the Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ is the most notorious sneaker release of all-time.

Last week Sneaker News gave you a look at a Halloween-esque colorway of the Nike Air Max Uptempo 2 – a Max Orange/Black colorway that was more exhilarating than it was spooky. Featuring the electrified Max Orange on the upper with a black mesh layer and midsole, this new colorway of the mid-90′s Nike Basketball stud is an instant head-turner – and who says you HAVE to wear these for Halloween? It’s got that Highlighter Pack theme to it, and perhaps this is a sign for more neon-ish colorways of Nike Retros arriving in the near future. Like what you see? These are now available at your local House of Hoops, but you can always cop them at the convenience of your computer by getting one now from godblesswkadv on eBay.

As we approach the end of October, NBA Basketball, despite still being a big question mark, is still on our minds. The recent South Florida All-Star Classic reminded us why NBA basketball is the most exciting professional sport to watch, and even the super-realistic NBA 2K12 video game has given us more reason that the 2011-12 NBA Season is worth the wait. Need even more of an NBA fix? Nike Las Vegas just dropped a whole set of Nike Basketball PEs, like the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 for Russell Westbrook, the Nike Air Max Sweep Thru for Amare Stoudemire, and the Nike Air Max Hyperdunk 2011 for Chris Bosh.
