The 2016 NBA All-Star weekend has come to a close. Hosted by Drake in his hometown of Toronto, Ontario, it was one of the best All-Star weekends in recent memory. With Klay Thompson and Steph Curry going head to head in the 3-point contest and the slam dunk contest going into triple overtime, there were no true losers this weekend. Aside from showcasing their talent, All-Star weekend also has become a time for players to let loose and rock some crazy outfits and fresh kicks.
Here are the hottest sneakers we spotted celebrities rocking during All-Star weekend.
Nick Cannon is known for his flashy personality and wardrobe. So when he showed up to the celebrity basketball game his sneakers were just as outlandish as expected. He took the classic Jordan VI “Maroon” which recently released for the first time in 20 years, and covered them in gold reptile print.
Kyle Lowry didn’t perform as well as he’d hoped with Toronto on his back, but he was able to rock some pretty flashy adidas. Originally named the KB8 after Kobe Bryant, the name was changed once the Black Mamba signed to Nike.
Drizzy opted for hard bottoms when coaching (and winning) the celebrity game on Friday night, but Saturday night he brought out some heat. He rocked a custom pair of OVO Jordan 8s detailed in Kentucky Blue. After all, the Kentucky Wildcats are his favorite college basketball team.
Before LaVine put on one of the best showings ever in the dunk contest, he played in the BBVA game on Friday night. Not only did he perform well but her rocked the super clean Nike Foamposite “Northern Lights.” It’s only appropriate to rock them during All-Star weekend up north in Toronto.
Wow. Who knew Jason Sudeikis could ball like that? Friday night during the celebrity game Sudeikis put on a clinic as he racked up points and his beautiful wife Olivia Wilde looked on. He’s a noted sneakerhead and has even rocked Jordans to award shows. This time he pulled out the ultra rare Nike KD 5 Elite “EYBL.” The kicks were originally designed for the Elite Young Basketball League, but it looks like Sudeikis has the hook-up.
When Spike Lee isn’t making iconic movies, he’s sitting court side at Knick games. The man who has his own Jordan in the Spizike, rocked the latest and greatest from Jordan Brand with the Jordan XXX. Also known as the Jordan 30s, they were released last month. While many sneakerheads didn’t find them too appealing in lifestyle terms, it’s hard to find a better basketball sneaker.
Odell Beckham, Jr.
Fresh off the best NFL season of his career thus far, Odell took a trip to Toronto to visit his newfound friend Drake and rocked a pair of Jordans that many have never seen before. Recently the Air Jordan 12 “Public School” released which were limited enough, but somehow Odell got his hands on the Family and Friends edition. What a time to be one of the most talented wide receivers in the league.
