The NBA All-Star Game is in Orlando this year, and do you know what happens near Orlando? NASA. In celebration of NASA (and the All-Star Game) Nike is releasing the Space Exploration and All-Star Game Packs, a batch of galactic-themed sneakers. Oh, and they GLOW IN THE DARK.
The Space Exploration Pack consists of special "galaxy" editions of the Nike Dunk, Flight One and Foamposite models, which resemble moon boots, or are cloaked in wild, galactic imagery, or some combination of the two. But there are also a trio of kicks that Kobe, Lebron, and Kevin Durant will be wearing on All-Star weekend. The LeBron 9, Nike Zoom KD IV shoes are designed to look like space suits—Lebron's shoe looks like the orange pressure suits astronauts wear during take-off, Durant's shoe is modeled after the silver Mercury space suit. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII System shoe, on the other hand, is designed to look like a supernova.
These are probably the most futuristic pair of kicks this side of the Air McFly's, but unlike those mythical beasts, you'll be able to buy these ones. The Space Exploration pack (the ones against the starry background) will be available on February 23, while the All-Star Game Pack (the ones against the black backgrounds) will be available on February 24 online at NikeStore.
