The Nike Lunar Force 1 Low “World Basketball Festival” will be releasing tomorrow. The good news is that you don’t have to be out in Chicago participating in the events or even camped out on your computer to pick up a pair, as it appears that boutique NSW accounts across the country will have them in stock. The shoes of course go extra literal on the whole basketball theme with that tacky leather that decorates the upper. Get a refresher on this Nike Air Force 1 style by checking in below and remember that Social Status is one of the accounts that will have them come tomorrow.

Nike Announces 2012 World Basketball Festival

2012′s edition of the World Basketball Festival is living up to its name much more than in previous years. The 2010 event was confined just to NYC, whereas this year the festivities are sprawling out across the globe ahead of the 2012 Olympic Summer Games in London. Where and when exactly is all this going down? Well they already hit up London over the weekend with stars like Luol Deng and Scottie Pippen showing up in the heart of Brixton to show support. Next on the agenda is the July 12th stop in Paris, a leg that will feature youth clinics as well as appearances by the French national team. After that the USA’s squads will show off their skills in our nation’s capital of Washington DC beginning July 13th, along with clinics and meet and greets for local military families.

Particularly exciting on the sneaker side of things for the Washington DC event is the 20 Years of USA Basketball exhibition, presenting a look at 20 Swoosh silhouettes that have played a critical role in changing the game over the years. Perhaps the most historic spot of all will culminate the journey, as Barcelona will host the festival starting July 20th in a celebration of the Dream Team’s dominance two decades ago, with members of that legendary squad showing up to partake. Click through for some shots of USA Basketball stars Kobe Bryant, Tamika Catchings, Kevin Durant (wearing some patriotic KDIV’s we’ve not yet seen), and LeBron James doing their thing and let us know if you’re planning to make it out to this summer’s World Basketball Festival.

Nike Brings World Basketball Festival To Paris

basketball festival paris 2012 3 Nike Brings World Basketball Festival To Paris

During the 2010 FIBA summer, Nike debuted its World Basketball Festival in New York, an event that included exhibitions between members of USA Basketball and concluded with an international doubleheader at Madison Square Garden.  This summer, USAB will be too busy gearing up to defend its gold medal in London to compete at the 2012 Paris WBF, so the focus will shift to amateur competition in the city that also hosts Jordan Brand’s Quai 54 Streeball tournament each year.

In addition to a Nike Camp and ‘She Got Game’ girls tournament, the courts built at the Cite Universitaire Internationale will host a game between France captain Boris Diaw’s chosen squad and his teammate Tony Parker’s crew.  Later, Diaw and TP will take to the court as the France vs. Spain matchup is shown on giant screens before the festival closes with a screening of the “Air Force 1: Anatomy of an Urban Legend” documentary.  So even if you won’t see KD, LBJ and Kobe competing against the world’s best until the Olympics in August, the 2012 World Basketball Festival is shaping up to be a can’t-miss event, and you can see more details after the jump below.
