Sneakerheads are chomping at the bit for next week’s release of the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’, and with Sneaker News showing you detailed images as well as ‘on-feet’ angles, the wait is becoming unbearable! The perfect alignment of events occurred to make the Galaxy Foamposites a reality; with the All-Star Game being in Orlando, Nike Basketball created the supernova/space travel theme (the Kennedy Space Center is just an hour away from Orlando), so attaching it to the shoe made famous by one of Orlando’s greatest players in franchise history seemed to be the perfect fit. Talks of week-long campouts are already trending topics in sneaker forums, so what will you do to get the Galaxy Foams in your hands? Let us know in the comments section below and if you’ve got the extra dough to cop these early, check out the asking price for this pair from mr_deadstock on eBay.

With the horizon of footwear releases being a balanced mix of quantity and quality, it takes something truly “out of this world” to get sneakerheads out of the woodworks and intensely prepare for a sneaker release. Sneaker News readers and forum regulars are already discussing tactics of acquiring a pair (expect to camp out), and with re-sale prices anticipated to triple or quadruple in price, getting a pair on release date has become all the more imperative. Needless to say, the upcoming ‘Galaxy’ theme for the 2012 NBA All-Star Game is the perfect match for the two; thirty of the leagues best stars convene in one location every year for a massive stellar explosion of on-court theatrics, and with Orlando being the host for this highly-anticipated event (just a stones throw from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center), the combination of an impressive concept and the single most hottest Nike sneaker commodity out right now should spell ‘history’, because the Galaxy Foamposites will go down as one of the best sneaker releases of the year. Of course, Sneaker News brought you a first detailed look at this red-hot release, and now we bring you the ever-popular ‘On-Feet’ approach, giving you a look at how awesome these will appear when you wear them on your own. Got plans of copping the Galaxy Foams? Let us know if these are a must-have for you and stick with Sneaker News for more updates and information regarding this hot release.

Would Wale’s daily sneakers make our Sneaker News Blogs: Best of WDYWT? With his two latest Instagram x WDYWT submissions, he’d probably garner a ton of votes.

So credit Wale for debuting the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ to planet Earth, and also for the first on-feet images of the Air Flight One ‘All-Star’ release.

Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ – Glow In The Dark

February 9th, 2012 by | 87 comments

nike air foamposite one galaxy detailed look 21 Nike Air Foamposite One Galaxy   Glow In The Dark

Foamposite was first developed during the early part of the 1990′s by Nike’s Advanced Product Engineering Team. What they were searching for was a lighter and less labor-intensive material to suit footwear construction, and what they found was someone so out-of-the-ordinary that it would potentially alter the horizon of footwear development and design. However, the new-age Foamposite never truly collided with the conventions of leather and mesh as it never really posed a threat to some major divisions of footwear development such as running, which depended more on breathability and lightness (which mesh had a firm advantage over any other material). In fact, Foamposite operated on a plane all on its own appearing only sparingly since its debut on the Nike Air Foamposite One, and even then, those models were never widely embraced; it was too different from what we were accustomed to, almost like it came from outer space.

A lot’s changed since Foamposite was first introduced to Nike Footwear; it’s hardly a cornerstone of performance these days (that sector is dominated by the modular construction of Hyperfuse, Flywire, and Lunar), but it has captured the essence of sneakerheadism so firmly because it acutely defines the passion for the out-of-the-ordinary and the visually unforgettable. Only until 2010 did the Air Foamposite begin the make a dent in the mainstream, with the release of the Copper and the re-issue of the Eggplants, and in 2011, Nike Sportswear re-opened the Foam factory with six solid releases – three ‘Ones’ and three ‘Pros’ – that became one of the widely celebrated releases of the year. In just the sixth week of the 2012, four releases have either released, been confirmed, or have been rumored, but none has been as energetic and exciting as the upcoming ‘Galaxy’ release, which is set for a limited release on February 23rd (Nikestore reports a release on the 24th, but we’ll clarify that for you very soon).

Using the ‘supernova’ as the core concept for the entire 2012 NBA All-Star collection, Nike Basketball raised the Foamposite to new heights by administering a visual graphic on the upper, replacing the lustrous metallic appeal of tonal paintjobs is a wide imagery of the Galaxy, dotted with shining stars and milky ways. Standing above the upper is an outsole that is entirely treated with glow-in-the-dark infusion like the Nike Basketball 2012 All-Star signatures, something that has yet to be pictured until now. Attached to the shoe is a ‘Remove Before Flight’ flag, found cautiously attached to objects destined for space travel. Even seventeen years after the debut of the Air Foamposite One, the shoe continues to hold the attitude of being ahead of its time, but we’d say the definitive Foamposite release couldn’t have landed at a better moment. Continue reading for a detailed look at the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ as well as a first viewing of the glow-in-the-dark outsole and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding one of the best releases of 2012.

Sneakerheads had January to catch our breaths after an utterly immense spread of heat during the holiday season, but Nike has cranked it back up already to the point where it’s almost starting to feel like Christmas in February.  From the Black History Month 2012 models to those commemorating this year’s NBA All-Star Game and a bunch of key drops in between, February has brought us a ton of pleasant surprises including the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ releasing along with the rest of the ASG buffet.  Once thought to be a concept sample never to see the light of retail, this first-ever application of a graphical print to the original Foamposite silhouette keeps in line with the NASA-inspired theme, and might just be the single most impressive design we’ve seen for NBA All-Star 2012.  Once reported as a Saturday drop, NikeStore now expects to have these on Thursday, February 23rd, and you can see some crisp new images of the supernova-emblazoned ‘Galaxy’ Foamposite Ones after the jump.
