Although NBA All-Star Weekend is only 4 days long, I HAD to bring 6 pairs! Yup, I really checked a bag with just sneakers.
Here's what I rocked over the weekend in Houston for the league's 62nd annual showcase event.
Jordan XI "Playoffs" : One of my favorite shoes of all-time. Works perfect with anything... even a suit & tie.
Zoom Flight 95 Kidd Career Pack "Dallas Mavs" : Great shoe! Was a big fan of the original black / carbon colorway.
Yeezy II "Solar Red" : Not much needs to be said. The unique thing about my pair is that the first time I wore them was Game 5 of the 2012 NBA Finals. I wasn't even thinking they would get soaked in champagne in the Heat locker room, but Pat Riley made sure of that!
Cole Haan Air Harrison Eva Oxford: Unfortunately, I can't always wear sneakers, especially to certain work functions. Luckily Cole Haans are very comfortable and stand out with their colored Nike Air sole.
adidas Real Deal: Loved and had these when they originally came out. The black & red edition was a no brainer for me!
Zoom LeBron IV Gold "All-Star" : LeBron never ended up wearing these on Sunday, as he went for the "Graffitis" instead, but 2007 was my first All-Star game as an NBA employee, so I felt like bringing them back out.
