After a brief hiatus ‘Is it The Shoes?’ is back. This edition highlights 10 of my favorite sneakers worn throughout the entire 3 day spectacle that was the 2013 NBA All-Star weekend. As expected, we seen a great line-up from Nike Basketball that included the “All-Star” KD V, LeBron X, and Kobe 8 as well as the entire “Area 72” pack. Not to be our done was Jordan Brand as they released the highly anticipated Air Jordan XX8 in the “Stealth” colorway and had Russell Westbrook don the “Green Camo”, “Red Camo”, “Blue Camo”, and “Why Not?” PE; all in two days. Other brands like adidas and Reebok fared well too as adidas had the Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard in the adidas Rose 3.5, the Los Angeles Lakers’ Dwight Howard in the adidas D Howard Lite, and the Denver Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried in the adidas Crazy Fast. Reebok had the Pacers’ Gerald Green in the “Houston” Reebok Kamikaze II, Shawn Kemp in the “All-Star” Kamikaze II, and Swizz Beatz in the “Fish Market” Kamikaze II. To see some of the shoes mentioned above and some that were not, scroll down and check out my 10 favorite sneakers worn during the 2013 NBA All-Star festivities.
