One year ago from around this time of year, Nike Basketball broke new ground and redefined the ‘Pack’, stretching the limits of sneaker colorways and details in the process. Of course, we’re referring to the ‘Galaxy’ Pack, which included the three signature Nike Basketball models, the outrageously popular Air Foamposite One, the rekindled fire of the Air Flight One, and several Nike Sportswear models. The bold colorways, glow-in-the-dark detailing, and ‘galaxy’ backdrop ignored the traditions of Blue (East) and Red (West) while setting a new and perhaps impossible-to-meet standard of All-Star kicks, and after the excitement around 2012’s ‘Galaxy’ Pack started to die down, all eyes were focused on what Nike had in store for 2013.

Luckily for us, the 2013 All-Star Game would take place in Houston, a city also well known for its connection to space exploration; Nike recently unveiled the entire 2013 All-Star Pack inspired by the fictional ‘AREA 72’, which produced another vivid set of color compositions for the trio of Nike Basketball signatures while introducing the highly anticipated Barkley Posite Max and the oft-retroed Air Force Max. There’s no doubt the upcoming releases would have us muttering “Houston, we have a problem”, so before the release goes down for good, let’s hear your opinion on the Area 72 vs. Galaxy matter. Does the 2013 Collection live up to the Galaxy standard, or does it perhaps fall short or go beyond what was expected? Vote in our polls below and let’s hear the true verdict on the case of Area 72 vs. Galaxy.
