There's no denying that All-Star Weekend had its share of sneaker releases, and according to sneakers number guru Matt Powell of SportsOneSource, they sneakers sold really well.
This morning, Powell tweeted how many pairs of both Air Jordan VI releases and the All-Star Game sneakers for LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

Numbers don't lie. Although there's debate on whether sneakerheads actually cared about the All-Star Game or not, there's no denying that they came out to purchase the sneakers. The "White/Infrared" VIs were the top seller with 250,000 pairs sold, and the more limited VI, the "Infrared 23," sold a respectable 75,000 pairs. Both LeBron and KD sold 30,000 pairs each of their ASG sneakers from Nike.
