New Balance All Star Basketball Sneakers

Believe it or not, New Balance sneakers will be on court during this weekend's NBA All-Star festivities.

While the brand doesn't really make basketball sneakers anymore (There's only one pair on its website), it made this special pair for tennis star Milos Raonic to wear in tonight's Celebrity All-Star Game. Raonic, a Yugoslavian native, moved to Canada with his family when he was three, which explains his slot on the nation's roster for the game.

The special New Balance All-Star sneakers are dipped in a Canadian red and wear maple leaves on back. 

Stay with Sole Collector tonight for updates on all the most exciting sneakers worn during the 2016 Celebrity All-Star Game.
