In celebration of the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando later this month, the Nike Foamposite 'Galaxy' sneakers are set to hit stores soon.

Sticking with tradition, Nike will release a limited-edition sneaker in correlation with the NBA All-Star Weekend. The Nike Foamposite 'Galaxy' is inspired by host team, the Orlando Magic -- a team that has a star for its logo and a city that has close ties to the NASA program. The galactic graphics are extremely detailed, and the color combination is another nod to the Magic's blue and purple hues.

Besides the awesome graphics and sleek design, the Nike Foamposite 'Galaxy' is equipped with cutting-edge technology, which includes added cushioning, better heel support and a more durable midsole. Stats for Final Frontier-Inspired Footwear Trending: Older & Popular
