2012′s All-Star Pack broke new ground with sneaker colorways, setting the precedent with insanely exotic colorways and details that have never been seen before. Following up that hot orange LeBron 9 is an purple/orange LeBron X featuring a series of details and graphics that draw connection to interplanetary exploration and extraterrestrials, and although the 2013 All-Star Pack isn’t a true ‘sequel’ to ‘Galaxy’, Houston’s NASA Space Center serves up quite the opportunity to revisit perhaps the best ‘Pack’ in the history of sneakers. Whether or not this year’s version will be as celebrated as last year’s is still up for debate, but in the meantime, be advised that the Nike LeBron X ‘All-Star’ drops on February 15th.

With the 2013 All-Star Game located in Houston, TX, the nearby Space Center likely plays a role in the upcoming capsule of Nike Basketball footwear for the Big Three. This LeBron X here carries a theme of outer-space, with a strong focus on funky details like cracked pavement, craters, and a similar ‘Galaxy’-like print on the interior lining. Combined with the constellation-like Lion logo on the tongue and the Area 72 detail on the insoles of the Nike KD V ‘Galaxy’, there are strong indications that ‘Galaxy’ will reign king this coming February. Check out the gallery of images of the Nike LeBron X ‘Galaxy’ below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates.

This year’s ‘Galaxy’ collection inspired by space exploration and the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando is likely the best ‘Pack’ ever executed by Nike – so good that Nike Basketball fans wouldn’t mind a ‘Part 2′ of sorts. It looks like Nike is giving what consumers want as we get a first look at the Nike LeBron X that is shaping up to be part of the 2013 All-Star Pack; although Nike is one to not recycle ideas, it’s clear that space exploration or the interplanetary realms are the inspiration behind these snappy colorways as it features another ‘galaxy’-esque inner lining, a logo that combines said theme and LeBron’s lion, and an incredible outer colorway with what appears to be a reflective 3M/moon crater detailing on the upper. A gallery of this GS sized LeBron X banger is just below so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates.
