The NBA All-Star festivities are almost here, and brands are gearing up to celebrate one of the most momentous sneaker occasions of the year in style. It’s easy to get lost on all of the All-Star centric releases, so we’re here to give you a full recap of what will be releasing in an ASG-theme over the next few weeks. Jordan Brand will be releasing a number of Laser inspirations to help usher in 30 years of Jordans in New York City. Kanye and the three stripes will launch the adidas Yeezy. Other brands have big plans too, as Packer Shoes and SNS have hooked up with Reebok for a 7-shoe collaboration. All of that is occurring even before a mention of Nike Basketball’s upcoming release of the LeBron 12, Kobe 10, KD 7, and Kyrie 1 in special aesthetics based on NYC locales. Check out a detailed look at the All-Star landscape below and let us know which pair you’re trying to grab in the comments.
Jordan Brand’s 2015 All-Star Sneaker Releases
Air Jordan “Laser Collection”
Jordan Brand celebrates its 30th Anniversary and the All-Star Game at the same time with three Laser-printed retros. Featuring a white base, metallic silver laser etching arrives throughout the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 4, and Air Jordan 20.
Air Jordan XX9 “Photo Reel”
Style Code: 695515-806
Release Date: February 13th, 2015
So much for that lawsuit… In the midst of accusations about the famous Jumpman logo’s true origin, Jordan Brand went ahead and released this realistic portrayal of Mike debuting the pose atop the Air Jordan 29. Featuring a gradient sunset backdrop, MJ wears his vintage sweatsuit.
Air Jordan 10 “Bulls Over Broadway”
Color: University Red/Cement Grey-Black
Style Code: 705178-601
Release Date: 02/14/15
Paying homage to Mike’s dominance at Madison Square Garden over the years, Jordan Brand releases this Toro-like Air Jordan 10 “Bulls Over Broadway” featuring a cement speckled outsole.
Air Jordan 1 Low “Bred”
Color: Black/University Red-White
Style Code: 705329-001
Release Date: 02/14/15
A classic revisited. Mike’s legendary Air Jordan 1 “Bred” returns in lowtop form featuring OG ‘Nike Air’ branding while the nostalgic ‘Wings’ logo gets moved to the back heel. Even the Swoosh gets a true to form retro feel. (It’s worth noting that this colorway was never an original Air Jordan 1 Low back in 1985, just the high-top).
Just Don x Air Jordan 2
Release Date: 02/14/15 (Exclusive to 166 Flatbush pop-up)
Don C’s collaborative effort with Jordan Brand returns to give New York City one more shot at grabbing the pair. Exclusive to Jordan Brand’s 166 Flatbush pop-up shop, the shoe will run $275.
Air Jordan 4 GG “Pearl”
Color: Light Bone/Cannon
Style Code: 742639-045
Release Date: 02/14/15
Jordan Brand’s ‘Peal’ motif for All-Star 2015 extends to the girls with this Air Jordan 4. Featuring a metallic silver finish, an added dusty iridescence sets this monochromatic retro release apart from the rest of the pack.
Air Jordan 10 “Lady Liberty”
Color: Dust/Metallic Gold Coin-Black
Style Code: 705178-045
Release Date: 02/15/15
Another NYC referencing Air Jordan 10, the Dusty steel base pays homage to NYC skyscrapers forged in steel while the ‘Retro’ teal color appearing on the outsole in a gradient nods at the Statue of Liberty.
Air Jordan 1 GG
More info TBD
A brand new Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG appears exclusively for girls in honor of All-Star Weekend. Featuring an all over elephant printed texture similar to that of a LAB release, a lifestyle tan clashes with teal for an original take on Mike’s classic first sneaker. No word yet on an official release date, but stay tuned.
