Basketball and the Big Apple have long gone hand-in-hand and Nike pays homage to that relationship with the introduction of its special edition footwear for the upcoming 2015 NBA All-Star Game. Here, the infectious energy and fast pace that connect the city’s five boroughs provide inspiration for the likes of the newly-unveiled Kobe X, the KD7, Kyrie 1, and LeBron 12. The Black Mamba’s All-Star kicks take cues from the 1964 New York World’s Fair — which fostered optimism, showcasing groundbreaking ideas and experimental thought as it drew attendees from across the globe — while the KD7 features nods to the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, whose steel-wire suspension system was an architectural marvel when it was erected in 1883. Meanwhile, Irving’s signature Kyrie 1 looks to the legendary City Hall Subway Station — closed since 1945, but a beautiful example of speed and efficiency upon its 1904 completion — as King James’s LeBron 12 highlights the converging geometry of Fifth Avenue and Broadway at the historic Flatiron Building.

Look for both the Kobe X and KD7 to launch February 13 while the Kyrie 1 and LeBron 12 will drop the following day. All four will be available at Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com in conjunction with matching tees, hats and socks.
