The NBA All-Star game is almost here—Sunday, Feb. 15—and the player edition kicks are rolling in. Jordan Brand reveals the kicks their players—Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and more—will likely be rocking on game day.
The shoe fall in line with the 30th anniversary “Pearl” aesthetic that will be seen throughout the brand this year.
Says Jordan Brand:
A group of Jordan Brand family members will appear in the All-Star game as Carmelo Anthony makes his eighth appearance, Chris Paul his eighth, Russell Westbrook his fourth, and LaMarcus Aldridge his fourth. One of the newest members of the Jordan Brand family, Jimmy Butler, will make his first arrival under the bright lights this year.
Jordan Brand family will be well represented throughout the weekend, with Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo representing the U.S. as second-year players. Saturday night, Victor will #TakeFlight, showcasing his athleticism and leaping ability in the slam-dunk contest.
This year’s player-exclusive footwear draws inspiration from Jordan’s All-Star pinnacle performance collection, the Pearl Pack, and will feature touches of Infrared throughout the shoes, a color with a deep tradition within the Jordan Brand and the All-Star game.
The kicks seen below and on the following pages include the Jordan Melo M11 Pearl, Air Jordan XX9 Pearl, Jordan Super.Fly 3 Pearl, and Jordan CP3.VIII Pearl, which are out now at global retailers and Jordan.com.
