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.
Adidas athlete James Harden though will however rock exclusive All-Star sneakers in New Orleans.
But the most notable sneaker brand to move away from tradition is Nike, as athletes LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have opted to wear the Black History Month version of their sneaker.
Nike’s own Jordan Brand have All-Star-based trainers as the 1, 6 and 31 have been predominantly highlighted by popular sneaker-based platforms with their release dates coming just after the weekend.
It remains unknown though if any Jordan athlete will wear these sneakers.
