For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace.┬áIf you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.

The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ was one of those 2012 sneaker releases that you just couldn’t ignore. Popping up quite a few months after that sneaker (and the rest of the epic 2012 NBA All-Star Game pack from Nike) is this t-shirt that’s a clear call back to said sell-out release. The shirt plants “Just Do It” across the front, with a powerful galaxy print creeping through the jumbo font. Get a better look at the ‘Just Do It’ galaxy shirt after the jump and grab one from Eastbay before they’re gone.

Just another Galaxy custom? Not quite, as Tragik Kicks has opted to inject a little bit more color into that now infamous print with his Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Skittles Galaxy’ pair. As you can see, the “Skittles” is referential to the rainbow look slapped on rather than any representation of the actual candy itself (Although why pass up the option for a scratch and sniff custom?).

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

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.
