Nike Sportswear’s 2013 NBA All-Star collection features three classics, one updated icon and a brand new hybrid. There’s an undertone of evolution/progression as we start with the first ever Nike Basketball shoe and move forward along the timeline to find phosphorescent accents lending a spacey edge to the rest of the pack. With a concept that pulls together last year’s space theme with this year’s ASG site in Houston along with references to Nike’s former Roswell resident Raygun and the company’s founding date, you get a sense of past, present and future all rolled into one extremely eye-catching quintet. Click through for a closer look at the ’Area 72′ Nike Air Force Max, Blazer Mid, Lunar Force 1, Barkley Posite Max and the most significant Vandal High release so far this decade, and stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach the Thursday, February 14th release date.

The 2013 All-Star Collection just wouldn’t be complete without a Foamposite shoe, but instead of the Air Foamposite One, Nike has decided to use this high-profile platform to introduce the latest Foamposite-based hybrid model – the Nike Barkley Posite Max. Combining the essence of two of Nike’s longest-running signature lines, the Barkley Posite Max captures trademark details of Barkley’s signature shoes, with the Foamposite upper bringing in Penny Hardaway’s influence on the shoe. The outer-space themed colorway adds to the eccentric effect, with a wild confetti-graphic upper being paired with reflective paneling, glow-in-the-dark outsoles, and a gorgeous interior lining. Is this a worthy follow up to the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’? Let us know in the comments below and keep your eye out for a release at select Nike Sportswear retailers on February 14th.
