The style truth is out there: Nike debuts out of this world shoes
Nike continues to lead the sneaker game. The brand debuted the 2013 NBA All-Star Collection from its Nike Basketball line on January 23 and the kicks were created based off of aÂ unique subject - outer space.
Freshness Magazine reports Nike Sportswear just unveiled its latest project, the "Area 72" sneakers, as a part of the NBA All-StarÂ Game Collection. These kicks get their name from Nike's supposed top-secret facility run by the fictional Nike Space Program on a section of land dubbed Area 72, just outside of Houston, Texas. Nike came up with the theme and the background information due to Houston's vast aeronautical history and the fact that the NASA Johnson Space Center lies just outside of the city. This year's All-Star game will take place inside the Toyota Center in Houston.
Staying true to the name, the latest sneakers will mix space-age concepts, including glow-in-the-dark soles and galaxy print colorways, with the performanceÂ technology fans of the kicks have come to love. Despite the updates to the overall look of the sneakers, the outer-space designs will be created on five classic sneaker models.Â
Fans of the Nike Blazer Mid, Nike Vandal, Nike Lunar Force 1, Nike Barkley Posite Max and Nike Air Force Max 2013 can get new versions that are sure to make a statement at the next party they attend. Sneakerheads can purchase a pair of these out-there sneakers beginning on February 14.
