With the 2017/18 NBA season well underway, it won’t be long until fans start getting excited for the All-Star Weekend in February. To pay homage to the 2018 rendition that is being hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Jordan Brand will debut an “LA” iteration of the Air Jordan 9. Wrapped in a white-black monochrome color scheme, black forming the upper with white covering both the midsole and outsole, the silhouette appears clean and simple. Hits of metallic gold on the tongue and heel branding add a touch of class, while the Los Angeles map-inspired insoles add some regional flair.
Fans should look for the Air Jordan 9 “LA” to drop in time for next year’s All-Star Weekend, that see’s a move away from the classic East vs. West format to a captain/draft style. The shoes will be at select Jordan Brand retailers and its online shop for $190 USD.
One man certain to be present at the All-Star Weekend is LeBron James. We recently caught up with the star to chat to him about his off-court duties.
