All-Star kicks snubbed in favour for Black History Month

The NBA All-Star Game isn’t just known for the all offence, no defence style of play that the players put on, which leaves fans all over the world in awe.

Sneaker heads also keep track of what exclusive PE’s are on offer on court.

However, this year’s game will mainly take a rather untraditional move away from “All-Star kicks” and highlight ‘Black History Month’ instead.
