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.
