Ten years ago, Nike Basketball dropped its most legendary collection of footwear ever. Appropriately dubbed the “Galaxy Pack” by sneakerheads, 2012’s All-Star Game collection sparked a revolution of trends in the lifestyle shoe scene as outer-space and interstellar themes dominated footwear across all categories. The “Pull For Lockdown” hangtags, the galactic patterns, and glow-in-the-dark soles were common sights, but none stood out like the original pieces that blazed that trail. The LeBron 9 had intentional design choices to match the concept. LeBron’s signature shoe featured a full orange upper, a nod to the color specifically used in space travel as it is the most visible to the human eye. However, the fiery colorway was dubbed “Big Bang” by the public, and the rest is history. The Nike LeBron 9 “Big Bang” returns for the first time in a decade on February 18th, 2022. SNKRS as well as select retailers globally will release the shoes; see the store list below.
