Nike today unveils its expansive 2018 All-Star collection. A wide-reaching assortment that touches on partnering athletes, collaborators and iconic Swoosh styles, the “Makers of the Game” lineup narrates an array of stories meant to push both the game and culture forward.
Among the most noteworthy releases are the Undefeated x Nike Kobe Protro — a camouflage laden remastering of Bryant’s first signature model. There’s also the second chapter of the KITH x Nike LeBorn series, which champions kingly design aesthetics seen through both footwear and apparel. What’s more, designer Riccardo Tisci continues his partnership with Nike through the Victorious Minotaurs moniker, encapsulating footwear, apparel and accessories.
There is of course Nike Basketball’s signature collection including the Nike KDX, Nike Kyrie 4 and the Nike PG2. Each model takes direction from the game’s host city with heat activated Swoosh branding that changes colors to reveal Southern California landmarks. The Nike LeBron 15 does not appear in this collection yet, the Nike Air Zoom Generation, does. The famed “Wheat” colorway James wore during the 2003 NBA All-Star Rising Challenge Game will finally see a proper release.
To close, Nike will release another galaxy-centered Air Foamposite One alongside the 90/10 Pack which features the likes of the SF-AF1, Air Huarache, Air More Money and the Vandal Supreme High.
The Nike “Makers of the Game” All-Star Collection is set to release on February 15 at Nike’s All-Star space in Los Angeles, Nike.com and SNKRS.
