On the heels of yesterday’s Kobe X spotlight, we have another gorgeous new design from Nike — today’s unveiling of their 2015 All-Star collection for its athletes: Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and LeBron James.
I love the New York City inspirations for each one, starting off with Kobe’s Kobe X off the 1964 World Fair. I feel like I’d be wearing some sort of 2015 NBA Jam shoe with the all-black powerfully accented by the neon colors on the bottoms of the sides. The All-Star KD7 is based off the Brooklyn Bridge, the new Kyrie 1 is off the famous subway station at City Hall, and finally, the LeBron 12 draws a nod from one of my favorite buildings in NYC: the Flatiron Building. Nike did a wonderful job designing the backgrounds to display these shoes up above. Here they are all together too.
Look for the shoes to drop February 13th (Kobe & KD) and 14th (LeBron & Kyrie). Also peep the extra gear. The ‘NYC’ x ‘Nike’ hybrid logo and the socks are both as fire as the kicks.
