Updating one of the most hotly-anticipated stories of early-2012, it appears we now have an almost-official Nike Air Foamposite One Galaxy release date. Word today is that the shoe, which sports a wildly multi-colored, space-themed foam upper set atop a glow-in-the-dark outsole, will hit stores on February 24th, the same day as the all-star signature shoes (KD IV, Kobe VII, LeBron 9). The shoe is not listed on Nike’s official release calendar for February, so take this with a grain of salt, but it was expected to be a Quickstrike all along, so an absence from the official schedule doesn’t necessarily mean anything about the Galaxy Foamposite release date. Retail will be $220. Photo via @heronpreston
Update: It looks like the release date has been officially set (changed?) for 2/24. I’ve edited it up top, but make sure to alter your calendars. I’ll surely do another post or two though.
