Nike “Galaxy” All-Star Display at Orlando HoH + Midnight Release Shut Down

February 24, 2012 | 27

We all know that the world of sneakers is experiencing a strong gravitational pull from the gigantic meteor that is the “Galaxy” Foamposite One. But let’s face it, a Foamposite One being released in a colorway this special comes along as often as Haley’s Comet so many of us are currently star gazing outside our favorite sneaker spots awaiting their release. With the most special release currently in Florida for All-Star Weekend, Nike took special care of the Orlando House of Hoops location with a conceptual layout that is simply “out of this world”. A three man astronaut window display and a tantalizing arrangement of All-Star releases illuminate the store’s facade. A truly “astronomical” installation for the weekend.

If you’re not camping out for the Foamposites, then chances are you’re there for the…socks? Yes, DJCK tweeted a small que growing outside the HoH Orlando for the “Galaxy” Elite Socks. A special Penny tee shirt is also available for purchase seen below.

In other news, the chaos that comes along with such hyped releases can only spell trouble for retailers as they brace themselves for the release. The same HoH Orlando has taken extra precautions with the release by employing Orlando’s finest to monitor the situation. Needless to say, the cue at Florida Mall has been shut down indefinitely due to the mass hysteria.

    This is stupid, these camp outs and midnight releases are not the way forward. Impossible in these days when every kid and their mom is a hype beast, people’s safety is in jeopardy. This is exactly why i refuse to participate in this hype, i will never camp out for any shoe no matter how bad i want it. I’m a sneaker lover since i was a kid but i’m on the point of retiring if this madness continues, i will be happy to pick up some QS and GR stuff in the near future but i’m staying the hell away from these super limited releases.

    Don’t get it twisted. Nike is loving every minute of this

    They would never admit to it but the more stabbing shootings robberys riots that occur because of this shoe the better for Nike

    shut it all down back to formula

  11. Cotton

    Thats what I practice and use my constitutional rights… ESPECIALLY the 2nd Amendment for situations like this. The concord release was no different!

    This is straight crazy but like someone already said; Nike is loving it!

  12. My Dixie wrecked

    Cotton be carefull. There nothing more fun then doing time or a possession charge for doing nothing wrong

  13. Executive

    Looks like the whole unemployment line showed up for this release, you seriously have to have no job to be doing this type of bull. I like foams but if I miss out on something oh well I can’t be mad.

  14. LG

    Knew this shit was going to happen. They shut down the HOH in PG yesterday for the Flight Ones, they sold them this morning. When they shut down the HOH they had everyone mad, people have been waiting outside for 6+ hours. Footaction got the Flight Ones too in PG, they also shut it down and selling them this morning. PG HOH is crazy right now. DTLR in DC is going to be death trap tomorrow. GOOD LUCK!

  15. SBedge

    Maybe I’m a little bit gangsta but I am loving all this ish. Shootings for sneakers, yeah we had that back in the 90′s as well… for Fing GR’s! Campouts maybe gay, but at least its because Nike still has heat. And resllers? fing spend the money on a pair and buy one; chances are if you have a great career, you would have lost more waiting in line than paying a reseller for theze’

  16. eazzy

    i was there lol im in half the videos ive seen. shit was rediculous. hype kills

  17. Cotton

    Dixie..

    You right bro!

    But when you know the law, have a lawyer on your side and…. The weapons is yours legally..It is fair game. But of course I’ll be careful man! No doubt about that!

    P.s. self defense works magic! Not
    To mention, we all have the right to protect ourselves, it is just doing it the right way and having everything documented on paper so when ONE TIME calls back to HQ to make sure that weapon is yours, they can’t pull no dumb “illegal possession charge”

  18. Cotton

    Some guy in the picture have the retro 11 shorts on with KD copper shoes.. Pure funny but if I’m campin out for some shoes, I’ll wear just about anything myself

    Those Lb9s are MINES those!

  19. Tennessey

    IF …. IIIIIIIIF … I ever participated in this bafoonery ( which I never would ) and any bodily harm came to me I WOULD SUE THE HELL OUTTA NIKE … It’s so obvious they just like the publicity. When did businesses start putting promotion and publicity over profit? If I was the CEO I’m tryna get all the gwap … put out as many pairs as it takes to supply the masses . I guess once you got Billions on the books loosing a couple million every year with limited releases doesn’t matter.

  20. abel samora

    I got the KD’s and people got the foams and labrons and kobe’s and dave whites aswell but the house of hoops in woodland hill cali was well organized

  21. SPINS613

    The one time I’m glad I’m not living in Orlando right now.

    Pure stupidity.

    Hey, Wisonsin passed a concealed weapon law. Now I can carry. But when I’m up in Green Bay, the only crap you gotta deal with is a Packer’s wife trying to offer me $500 cash and game tickets for my 11.5.

    HELL NO WOMAN!

  22. K. Billy

    I just want the socks. Are hoh getting them?

  23. sneakercritique

    I want socks and Kobes, KD’S or Flight ones

  24. I'm Royal"but can't stand the word" Swag

    Glad I didn’t get hyped up for this ish. I’m 19 & I’m alreqady gettin tired of the sneaker game. It. Isn’t fun, it’s more stress with hype and bs quality of the J’z these days that half the time I don’t wanna even buy kicks.

    Also where did these losers 1 find the time to campout all this time on a workday and 2 where they all find $220+tax at. Get your priorities straight people.

  25. Jerronimo aka Seattle Slimm

    I bet NIKE is loving all this (negative/positive to them only) feedback. Feed the BEAST!

    This is really getting out of hand.

  26. FOAM-COPPA

    You Already Know!!
    Them Ni@@as up in trees (from youtube video of this scene)LMFAO!!
