Year: 2000
Sneaker: Nike Air Force 1 High "Sheed"
Player(s): Rasheed Wallace

The 2000 All-Star Game in Oakland was all about rebirth. The previous year's All-Star Game had been lost to a protracted lockout - sorry, Philadelphia - and Michael Jordan had re-retired after the 1998 NBA Finals, presumably for good. But there were new things to celebrate. Like Rasheed Wallace, selected to his first All-Star Game at the age of 25. He only scored nine points in the game, but his black leather Nike Air Force 1s harkened back to a time when men were men, and those men wore massive hightops. And both teams played hard.
