As 2019 NBA All-Star weekend nears closer, more pairs from Nike keep surfacing that are designed to celebrate this year's festivities in Charlotte. The latest is an Air Max 97 that resembles the white jerseys that will be worn by some of the league's best in this year's exhibition.
A jersey-like white mesh upper is highlighted by reflective red and royal blue piping. A metallic silver stripe and mini Swoosh don each side panel, while white leather wraps the mud guard. Special details on this pair include a striped heel tab and removable Velcro branding on each tongue. Speckled insoles could potentially allude to the pattern seen on warm-up jackets worn by players in the 1991 All-Star Game, the last year the event was held in Charlotte.
According to Finish Line, this special colorway of the Nike Air Max 97 is scheduled to hit select retailers on Feb. 8. Check out official look at the pair below.
