Prior to the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ and the Glow In The Dark bonanza, custom Foamposite extraordinaire Jason Negron introduced to us his ‘Light-Up’ Foamposite One Customs, which featured a complete LED light transplant embedded onto the outer border of the sole. Combining the Light-Up and the Galaxy ‘Glow’ is his Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ Light-Up Customs, which features the remarkable ‘Galaxy’ shoe with the bright lights of the custom outsole. In addition to the LED lights, Negron applied Glow-In-The-Dark to the white stars on the Galaxy upper to further the ‘outer space’ experience, resulting in one of the most ambitious Foamposite customs to date. We’ve got a detailed gallery right ahead so let us know what’s swimming around your thoughts in the comments below and if you want to get your own Foams swapped to your liking, contact Jason Negron through his Sole Swap Facebook page.

Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ Restock @ 21 Mercer

It’s not very often a single product has such a game-changing effect on an industry, so once ‘Foamsanity’ went down in the early hours of February 24th, 2012, the Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ would forever be enshrined as one of the most notorious sneaker releases of all-time, if not the single most notorious in history. Retailers were forced to pull the product from the shelves to ensure the safety of all parties involved (consumers, store employees, and local authorities), and since then, Nike has taken drastic measures in regards to their product releases in order to preserve order in the future. A few retailers ended up putting the shoes back on the shelves at random, undisclosed dates, and the Foams landed in the hands of store regulars and frequent shoppers without as much of a peep. It was a throwback to the days when a consumer could just walk into a store without knowing what he would find inside and leave happy with a fresh new pair or two; essentially, that experience is what Nike is trying to recapture, and although Nike sets its own firm releases dates and makes that info public, what we saw over at 21 Mercer today was a callback to the days when it was all about being in the right place at the right time.

Earlier this morning, at 21 Mercer, Nike’s premier NSW consumer experience located in the SoHo district of Manhattan, Nike quietly pulled off its own clandestine restock of the Galaxy Foams. If you remember, 21 Mercer was the best prepared for the initial All-Star releases back in February, holding separate ‘wrist-band’ line-ups during separate days of the week and ensuring a quick and easy purchase for those who were keen on following the store’s Twitter account (@21Mercer if it’s not on your list yet). This morning’s ‘restock’ was handled much more subtly, and those who were lucky enough to be around the store at its 11:00 AM opening were pleasantly surprised to find the Galaxy Foams readily available with ample time to try on the shoes, chat with fellow customers, and of course, let their web-based circle of friends in on the secret. Once news hit the e-world, the traffic at 21 Mercer quickly grew and the entire stock of Galaxy Foams were eventually wiped out in about an hour. Those who were there to cop a pair can testify first-hand that it was a reminder of the old days when shoes just showed up without notice and making a sneaker purchase was as much ‘luck’ as it was a planned event. Your thoughts on this random restock? Will we see more Galaxy Foams pop up in the future and will Nike be dropping more high-profile releases in this hushed manner?

Mac Miller Destroy His Galaxy Foamposites

April 26th, 2012 by | 86 comments

mac miller nike air foamposite galaxy Mac Miller Destroy His Galaxy Foamposites

One would be rather cautious when wearing a pair of kicks that are hard to come by, but Pittsburgh native Mac Miller didn’t think twice about being a extra active during his show last night at NYC’s Roseland Ballroom. He wore the Galaxy Foamposites with one of his outfits, heartily scuffing the toe-boxes of his delicate kicks and deeming them dead on sight (he bids farewell with an ‘RIP’). After letting the Twitter-world know about the condition of his Galaxy Foamposites, he went ahead and copped a crisp new pair, and with his current stay being in NYC, it’s possible he ‘re-upped’ at Flight Club. Did Mac Miller move around in such an aggressive manner that he would cause that much damage to his shoe, or is the graphic print on the upper that sensitive to the touch? If a sneaker needs to be so delicately handled, is it really worth the $1,200-$1,500 for a pair? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ Custom Shoebox

April 9th, 2012 by | 30 comments

These days, it’s so easy to forget a recently dropped sneaker because quite frankly, there so much heat dropping on a near-weekly basis. But the ‘Galaxy’ Foamposites of late February continues to maintain a strong presence over a month after its release, and we can easily predict that the ‘Galaxy’ will forever be remembered as one of the most memorable releases of all-time. Unfortunately, not everyone was able at get their hands on the shoes, resulting in a slew of Galaxy customs (and well-done customs, we must add), but one sneaker-driven artist decided to amp up a pair of the Galaxy Foams with a sick custom-made box; it features a slide-out ‘shelf’ construction with cut-out molds for the shoes, with the amazing Galaxy graphic on the exterior of the box. If a special package like this released, it would’ve made the shoes that much better (like how the Nerf box made it such a memorable release), wouldn’t it? Check out the gallery of this awesome Galaxy box and if you want to purchase the shoes and the box, this special set is available right now from hobokid69 on eBay.

Nike Air Force 1 Mid ‘Galaxy Force’ Customs by PD44

Sneaker News has thoroughly covered the extent to which black/white sneakers, those featuring animal prints and other key trends are bubbling up in early 2012, but none of them will be remembered as strongly as the look that came and went in February without so much as an official retail release.  The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ is one of those ‘event’ sneakers you’ll be telling your grandkids about even if you don’t own a pair, and given the rarity of this stampede-inducing design during a time when custom sneakers are more popular than ever, we’ve seen quite a few artists try their hand at the ‘Big Bang’ look.  The latest comes from Korea where a ‘Galaxy Force’ Nike Air Force 1 Mid has been created by applying an intergalactic print over top the traditional AF1 Mid lines, resulting in something like a VacTech treatment for this unique custom job.  These have some steep competition in the ‘Galaxy’ customs category; where does this Air Force 1 Mid rank against all the other models carrying this motif?  Let us know when you click through to see more and let us know if one of the five pairs to be created is worth importing when they release on April 7th.  via The Creakers

NBA Feet: Delonte West – Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’

March 30th, 2012 by | 18 comments

delonte west nike air foamposite one galaxy NBA Feet: Delonte West   Nike Air Foamposite One Galaxy

Whether he’s taking a summer job at a moving company, assisting in the birth of a baby cheetah, or spending some off-the-court time with a former teammate’s mother, Delonte West never seems to miss a beat in life. Somehow the back-up point guard manages to stay in the headlines, but today, he’s doing so for a noble reason – rocking Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ during last night’s NBA Finals rematch between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat. Although West wasn’t the first NBA player to rock the Galaxy Foamposite during a game (that distinction goes to Rajon Rondo), it’s definitely worth noting anytime these Foams hit the NBA floor. So who’s next? Gilbert Arenas? Monta Ellis? Check out a full in-game action shot below and let us know what you think. via Yahoo
