NBA All-Star Weekend has long been one of those events that you know will be brimming with related sneaker releases. The stage is too big and bright for the big name brands to turn down the idea of trotting out a new colorway in grand fashion, and Nike in particular has made a great use of that over the last few years. This time around they appear to be taking the ‘All-Star’ idea very literally, at least on this new colorway of the Nike LeBron 9. At first known as the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Big Bang’ this red hot colorway utilizes a galactic flavor, especially on the lining and insole which feature starry patterns and an outline of the Leo constellation, an obvious choice with the ubiquitous Lion/LeBron imagery. This time around we’ve got a great look at the insides, as well as some up close shots that show off the slick details on this upcoming colorway. Hit the jump for the photos of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘All-Star’ and stick with us for release info. via Taobao

A Zoom KD IV inspired by meterology, a whole pack of Zoom Kobe VIIs dedicated to deadly predators and now a Nike LeBron 9 ‘Big Bang’ colorway — anyone care to venture a guess the Color, Graphics and Materials Team over at Nike Basketball has been watching a bunch of the Science Channel lately?  We saw a pronounced shift toward college-themed releases when the NBA and its PA couldn’t get their act together during the early fall, and this same kind of looking beyond the bounds of your everyday average NBA signature sneaker likely played a role in getting all these wildly inventive new looks to market.  The ‘Big Bang’ LeBron 9 is arguably the most intense of all these colorways, a blazing mix of orange and red that features more little details than any release this side of Freegums’ doodle-heavy design.  Sneaker News readers seem particularly jazzed about the galaxy represented on this pair‘s shank plate and insole, but that’s taking nothing away from the novelty of a sewn-on tongue tag.  Click through and you’ll see all of these and more, and be sure to check back with us periodically for updates including word on their availability.  via SoleWings

Just before the Christmas holiday weekend, Sneaker News brought you a first look at a trio of upcoming Nike LeBron 9 colorways on the same day.  The ‘Dunkman’ is an tradition beloved by neon-seeking sneakerheads and the Ken Griffey Jr.-inspired model had a similar annual look to it thanks to being fairly close to an ‘All-Star’ PE, but it was the third colorup that blew them both out of the water in terms of reader response.  The LeBron 9 ‘Big Bang’ might be the most talked about release since the early flurry of special releases when this model debuted a couple months back, its fiery upper paired with a unique intergalactic graphic on the medial plate and insole.  Have a closer look at this burningly aggressive ‘Big Bang’ LeBron 9 and let us know which of Nike Basketball’s science/nature-inspired themes has been best so far.  via HC

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Big Bang’

The other worldly Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ Gentry Humphrey was spotted wearing at a recent event in Las Vegas has apparently been scrapped, no longer a part of the Nike Sportswear 2012 release calendar.  But that doesn’t mean the Swoosh isn’t ready with some intergalactic planetary funk in the form of a cutting edge basketball design.  The Nike LeBron 9 ’Big Bang’ is a superb example of how to reach beyond the typical inspiration for sneaker colorways without getting overly convoluted or bogged down in esoteric references.  The blazing colorway is something like the star from which each atom once eminated, the sewn-on tongue tag a first for this year’s LeBron James signature, and the groovy space image insoles finish off the theme perfectly.  This is a shoe that represents a shift in how we’ve come to think about the way basketball shoe palettes come together, one that reflects the impressive technical prowess of this design and one that fits the burst of energy when LeBron’s creating on the court.  Click through to see more and let us know how this ‘Big Bang’ LeBron 9 compares to the ‘All Star’ edition we just showed you.  via Marquee Sole
