The new Nike Lebron space sneakers are the shoes where several elements collide. First of all, they are the newest Lebron shoes from Nike. Secondly, Lebron just finished playing in the NBA All-Star game in Houston. Thirdly, Houston is also the home to NASA's control center, which became common knowledge after the movie Apollo 13.

These new space sneakers feature the globally recognized NASA logo on the right heel as well as a very formally printed United States of America stitch on the left heel. To give these white sneakers even more space-specific elements, Nike included a view of Earth from the moon in one of the side sneaker windows. The other side sneaker window features an alien creature.

These Lebron NASA sneakers were released specifically for the NBA All-Star game. Stats for Star-Gazing Space Sneakers Trending: Older & Warm
