Where to buy the Nike Foamposite Galaxy One Shoes

Updated on July 27, 2012

Nike Galaxy Sneakers ebay Bid for $70,000!


Why can't I find the Nike Foamposite Galaxy One shoes?

Last week, my son came home from work and was telling me about a conversation. My son is 19 and he works at an urban clothing store at the mall. The week before he purchased a pair of LeBron sneakers that started conversations wherever he went. These guys were complimenting his sneakers and mentioned how they were going to spend over $2000. on a pair of Nike Foamposite sneakers. I stopped washing the dishes and asked him to repeat that last sentence. I'm sure you know what I asked next!

"Why would anyone pay over $2000. for a pair of Nike shoes?" I exclaimed.

The retail price for the sneaker is $220.00, but that's not what they're selling for on ebay!

That's not the end of the craziness. The kids told my son they were going to get a pair to put them on display in a glass case in their home. Really?!

My son was shocked. He couldn't believe I hadn't heard of all the hype surrounding these sneakers. Well, I hadn't. Naturally, I had him explain it to me.

If I watched the local news instead of MSNBC, I would have heard of the riots that took place at the stores that had these shoes. There was a riot in an Orlando Florida store, where they planned a midnight release. There was a similar incident in Maryland. However, Footlocker canceled their release. People waited outside anyway. I couldn't believe what he was telling me, so I went on youtube. Know what I found? Youtube videos of stores around the US with mobs of people running into the store, trampling fellow shoppers. It looked like WalMart on Black Friday! You can watch the video below to see the chaos these sneakers created.

Why are the Foamposites so scarce?

After the store riots occurred, Nike decided to stop selling them online and at the store. I was like, "No, way!" I did several Google searches to find the truth. Nike pulled the sneakers. That made the sneaker even more sought after and exclusive. They were so hot, someone paid $70,000 for a pair on ebay! WT?!

What do the Galaxy One shoes look like?

They look like the background images of Star Ship enterprise shooting through space. It looks like the Milky Way.

How can I buy a pair of Nike Galaxy One sneakers?

You can follow the link on the right side of this page. The link will lead you to ebay. It's the only place you can find them. If you look at the image below, you will see that a pair was sold recently on ebay for $70,000.

The owners of these sneakers will have a story to tell in the future. That's for sure. They will probably be worth even more in the future. Why? These were a limited release. They were going to be difficult to acquire anyway. The riots just made it 100x harder.

If you have a pair of these, enjoy. Remember to be very careful if you wear them in public!

Why is it so hard to find Nike Foamposite Galaxy Sneakers?
