In just his second full season in the NBA, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin was voted in as a starter for the All-Star Game. With the amount of highlight reel-worthy plays he makes throughout the course of a season in a city like Los Angeles, it's hard to imagine a scenario where he doesn't start for the foreseeable future. In this year's game, Nike hooked Blake up with a special "Galaxy" version of the Hyperdunk 2011 Supreme, a model he's been wearing with the Clippers for the last several months. Today, we get a closer look at these space age kicks.
A mixture of blues and greens are used on the shoe's upper, which is constructed with synthetic materials, mesh, Flywire and TPU overlays. Black works the tongue, collar and a starry-speckled midsole, while the popular Galaxy print appears on the laces and inner lining. A custom BG32 mission patch appears on the tongue; Swoosh logos on the side panels are done in orange; and a glow-in-the-dark outsole finishes things off below.
These won't be making their way to retail anytime soon, but you can get your best look to date below.
