Although not performing well enough to make this season's Eastern Conference All-Star squad, Amar'e Stoudemire was still one of several hoopers to be outfitted with "Galaxy" themed footwear by Nike Basketball. 

Originally put together for Amar'e to rock during the 2012 NBA All-Star Game, Nike Basketball treated the Knicks' star to a version of his signature Air Max Sweep Thru dressed in the ever so popular "Galaxy" theme. An eye-catching royal blue hue takes over most of the upper on them, while metallic silver handles the midfoot strap, Swoosh and tongue badge. The "Galaxy" theme handles the underlay of the midfoot strap, along with the laces and liner. Just like the rest of the "Galaxy" themed footwear, we see a glow in the dark outsole sitting down below.

The "Galaxy" Air Max Sweep Thru was created exclusively for Amar'e Stoudemire and is not expected to release at retail.
