See What Happens When The Nike LeBron 9 Merges With The Nike Foamposite “Galaxy”
The Nike LeBron 9 and the Nike Foamposite One “Galaxy” are arguably the two hottest sneakers of 2012. The LeBron 9 has become super popular because of the fact that it’s now available in approximately 4,365 different colorways. Okay, so we may be exaggerating a little bit there, but there have been a number of different colorways available for the LeBron 9 this year—and there are certainly more to come. And then you’ve got the new LeBron 9 Low, which will only add to the madness this spring.
The “Galaxy” Foamposite is a different story. Released a couple of months ago, it was available in very limited supplies and has become the most hard-to-find sneaker of the year. Sure, you can scoop up a pair on eBay. But, good luck paying for it! It runs upwards of $2000 and is only going to grow in price as the “Galaxys” become harder and harder to find. So, with all of that in mind, what would happen if somehow the LeBron 9 and the “Galaxy” Foamposite could be merged into one sneaker? Insanity, right?
Right. And we know because custom sneaker creator C2 found a way to merge the two popular sneakers together recently. Using the NikeID LeBron 9 Foamposite base with the graphics found on the “Galaxy” Foamposite, C2 created a LeBron 9 sneaker that has all the elements of the “Galaxy” Foamposites. And it looks just as dope as you’d expect it to. At least to us.
So, what do you think? Would you wear these if you could get your hands on them? Or, do you think the “Galaxy” theme has run its course at this point? Judging from some of the comments we’ve heard from other people, it sounds like sneakerheads are on both sides of the fence on this one. Let us know where you stand. And, if you do happen to be fond of them, cop a pair from C2 on eBay now.
