The 2018 NBA All-Star Game will be held in Los Angles on Feb. 18 and All-Star Weekend is an event in itself. Before it arrives, we took a glance at what shoes and which brands will be represented by each player in this year’s game.
Nike has rolled out a special line, ‘Makers of the Game,’ for this year’s All-Star break. Along with that line include some collabs and the Kobe 1 Protro (performance retro). Since their ad above doesn’t give a good look at what that line is, here is a closer look at what some of the individual players will be wearing.
LeBron James: LEBRON X KITH
Kevin Durant: KDX ASW
Kyrie Irving: KYRIE 4 ASW
Paul George (replacing DeMarcus Cousins in the All Star Game): PG2 ASW
DeMar DeRozan (face of the Kobe line): KOBE PROTRO X UNDEFEATED
Other Players who will wear Nike’s ‘Makers of the Game’ line include Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Draymond Green, Karl-Anthony Towns, Bradley Beal, and Al Horford.
Nike Players who are out due to injury include Kevin Love and DeMarcus Cousins.
Two different colorways of Russell Westbrook’s first signature will be releasing for All-Star Weekend. One is a predominately white shoe shown in the ad below, the other is mostly black with a map of the city of LA on the forefoot.
Other Jordan Brand athletes in this year’s All Star Game include Jimmy Bulter, LaMarcus Aldridge, Victor Oladipo, Andre Drummond (Wall’s Replacement), and Kemba Walker (Porzingis’s Replacement).
The biggest thing coming from adidas this All-Star Weekend is the debut of James Harden’s second signature sneaker.
