With the NBA’s All-Star Weekend just over a week away, Nike Basketball has unveiled the sneakers it premier hoopers will rock.
In recent years, the annual league event has become one of the biggest stages for the All-Stars to show off not only their talent on the hardwood but also their shoe game.
In the 67th exhibition game — which features the first-ever format change, where the captains of both conferences (Steph Curry for the West and Lebron James for the East) get to draft the All-Stars to form their own teams — Nike signature athletes will sure attract a lot of attention with their All-Star-edition shoes.
Headlining Nike’s All-Star signature lineup is the LeBron 15 Limited ($185), which we reported on earlier this week. This edition of the King’s shoes comes in Rust Pink upper with black at the laces, pull tabs, and heel-counter. Metallic gold decorates the Swoosh logo and the Max Air units, while the entire shoes sits on top of a white translucent outsole with an articulated Max Air cushion.
Alongside King James is his former Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving, whose Kyrie 4 will also has a new ASG colorway. The Kyrie 4 ‘All Star’ ($120) features a mesh and suede upper with a black and white tie-dye print. Our previous report highlighted an interesting feature on the pink insoles: Venice Beach graphics that read “Kyrie Irving, Venice Beach CA, 5x All-Star.” The shoe is completed with a blue solid rubber outsole.
Lastly, to further strengthen the offensive firepower, Captain LeBron drafted the nine-time All-Star Kevin Durant, whose KD 10 Limited ($150) is getting an ‘All Star’ colorway as well. The shoe features red multicolor Flyknit upper while Ocean Fog covers the laces, inner bootie, heel counter, and midsole. A Fuchsia Blast swoosh flanks the lateral side of the heel counter and the entire shoe rides atop multicolor solid rubber outsole and a full-length Zoom Air unit.
The Nike Basketball ‘All Star’ Pack is expected to be release on February 15 via Nike.com.
