It’s hard to think back to a sneaker release that had such a panicky effect like the Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’. ‘Fear Of Missing Out’ seems to have stricken a large number of sneakerheads today as campouts have been reported to appear as early as Saturday, and a flash wrist-brand release by 21 Mercer have people dumbfounded. News of Nikestore’s cancellation of the release drew some disappointment and ire from those who were hoping to luck out with the midnight release. Some went as far as offering up a car for the shoes – a ’96 sedan in good condition for a pair of shoes that retail for $220. Tomorrow marks what will go down as one of the craziest sneaker releases of all-time as the Galaxy Foamposites officially go up for sale at select Nike Sportswear retailers; if you’re sitting at home right now, chances are you’ve somehow secured your pair, or you’ve given up already. In any case, we hope everyone is out there safe and secure, so best of luck to all and if you’re ready to pony up the big dollars, grab one of the available pairs online like these from yellownsxt on eBay.
