It was during the Air Jordan XI Concord’s launch last December that a Nike insider cryptically hinted to us that more pandemonium was to come for 2012. That premonition is finally upon us this weekend as Nike drops the Air Foamposite One “Galaxy” for the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. Since the flashy edition will be more exclusive than the Air Jordan XI Concord (only 3 stores will serve the entire isle of Manhattan). Sneaker heads have taken preemptive measures 2 whole weeks before the launch. Many forgo Valentine’s Day last week and slept in their cars just for the opportunity to get a wristband at 21 Mercer this morning. Others created mini encampments, with lounge chairs, sleeping bags, and pitched tents, outside of Foot Locker – House of Hoops at 34th Street. Though unconfirmed, some said the encampment along 125th Street at the original House of Hoops in Harlem was even larger. Whatever the case might be, 2012 is becoming one of most interesting year for sneakers. Not to mention the Air Yeezy 2 isn’t even out yet…
