Yesterday, we gave you a first look at the complete Nike Basketball 2016 "All-Star" lineup, and now the Swoosh has come through with official imagery and details of the sneakers that some of the NBA's top names will wear in The 6.
This Nike Basketball "Royalty Collection" is said to be inspired by Toronto's "royal origins." Each sneaker here has undergone All-Star-worthy makeovers , with the addition of details like removable patches, metal and leather overlays, and embroidery.
First up is the LeBron 13, pictured above. It's built around a grey and military green upper, a nod to Toronto's winter weather, and features an updated tongue. Next, the Kobe 11 takes on a Northern Lights theme and sees a redesigned molded leather heel and tongue. For Kevin Durant, Nike's readied the KD 8 with an abstract colorway inspired by Toronto's colorful flags.
Outside of the signature offerings, the Air Audacity worn by Anthony Davis and HyperLive made famous by Paul George will also see Toronto-inspired make ups. Unfortunately, it looks like the Kyrie 2 "All-Star" colorway has been scrapped at this point.
The ""Royalty Collection" from Nike Basketball drops on February 11 from Nike.com and select retailers. According to a press release, the range will also include a backpack, jacket, hat, t-shirt, socks, and exclusive NIKEiD sneaker options. Check out the entire pack below.
