The 2011 NBA All-Star Game is just two weekends away, and with this year’s festivities taking place in Los Angeles, Nike had to come through with some sick renditions of the Nike Air Force 1. All-Star inspired Forces has been a tradition for quite some time and although LA can be represented in a number of different ways, the task was a bit tougher than it seemed. How can you capture all of Los Angeles in one colorway/theme/motif? You can’t, really, so Nike decided to present three different renditions with each representing a specific territory and lifestyle of the West Coast city. You’ve got the ‘Orange County’ colorway, which alludes to LA’s beaches, the ‘Hollywood’ joints, which captures the glitz and glamour of the red carpet with hints of gold, and ‘East LA’, represented by a cool, calm, and collected Black/White combination. Gallery-2 is taking pre-orders for these for the Asian sneakerheads so if you’re out East, hit them up and reserve your pair.
