As LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis and Paul George prepare to head for Toronto for All-Star Weekend, Nike Basketball officially unveils a collection of sneakers inspired by sport royalty in the city. Each shoe bears commemorative badges to honor the corresponding player’s achievements, while metal, leather and embroidered details bring a touch of luxury to each design.

The LeBron 13’s grey-green upper is reminiscent of the tones of Toronto’s winter; glowing green hues on the Kobe 11 are a nod to the luminescence of the Northern Lights; colorful blocking on the KD 8 represents the city’s internationalism and the various flags that fly; the power of “The Brow” arrives courtesy of the Air Max Audacity; and George’s Hyperlive is dressed in traditional Canadian colors.

Nike Basketball’s All-Star Collection, along with matching accessories and NIKEiD options, will be available at nike.com and select retailers beginning Thursday, Feb. 11.
