Official photos have landed for the sequel to one of the most hyped up releases of all time. Shortly after receiving word that the “Galaxy” Foamposite would be making a return this February, there is now official product shots to further confirm the rumors.
This new alternate to the Foamposite that marked the peak (and probably the demise) of the classic ’90s basketball model takes a different approach to the space theme this time around. Instead of the starry purple seen on the original “Galaxy” Foam, this pair boasts a more colorful galaxy print along the upper reminiscent of early samples first seen in 2011. A blacked out sole also replaces the glow-in-the-dark seen on the OG, but the red “Remove Before Flight” tag is making a comeback.
Despite an fairly large dip in hype for Foamposites since 2012, this pair is certainly still to garner some pretty substantial attention off of the name alone. Slated for a Feb. 2018 release date, it could be coinciding with NBA All-Star Weekend festivities like the pair before it did as well. An official release date still has yet to be confirmed, but the retail price is set at $230.
