Last night, the starters for the 2011 NBA All-Star Game were announced, with three members of Team Jordan set to make the trip to Los Angeles in February. Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat will start for the Eastern Conference, while Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony will team up out West. Of course, the Jordan Brand is going to make sure their representatives are laced with special kicks when they take the floor at Staples Center next month. Here's a look at what the brand's starters will be wearing.
For Chris Paul, a white and varsity red colorway of his new signature shoe, the Jordan CP3.IV. Metallic gold accents the look on the lacing system, Jumpman logo and sole. The "All-Star" CP3.IV will be available to purchase on February 17th.
Carmelo Anthony will rock a Jordan Melo M7 with a full red varsity leather upper. Metallic gold accents the shoe beneath the perforations and within the visible Air unit. If Melo is traded before the All-Star Game, we may never see this shoe actually hit the court. You'll find the "All-Star" Melo M7 in stores on February 17th.
The brand's flagship sneaker, the Air Jordan 2011, will be worn by Dwyane Wade in an Eastern Conference colorway. The shoe features a white and handcrafted royal blue Patina leather upper with a "green" translucent rubber outsole. This colorway of the Air Jordan 2010 will also be available at retailers on February 19th.
