The 2021 NBA All-Star Game is just around the corner, and in celebration of the event Nike has given its Air Force 1 React LV8 in the D/MS/X variant a fitting game-day makeover.

Following in the theme of the Nike Dunk High, Foamposite One, and perhaps even the coveted Air Yeezy 2 “Solar Red,” this AF1 features a black leather upper overlayed with glossy black panels and various matte black details, while a “Barely Green” sole unit contrasts the upper’s design.

A matte black Swoosh is superimposed onto the upper, while on the toe and rear-quarter a shinier black material has been added and sports a swirled design through it. On the lateral rear-quarter, the NBA adds its signature holographic silver emblem while on the opposite side Nike adds the “D/MS/X” signature, denoting that this pair is part of the React family.

Rounding out the shoe is, of course, its React credentials. A drop-in footbed with Nike React technology makes for a lightweight, responsive, and well-cushioned base, making for one of the most comfortable AF1s around.

Take a look at the Nike Air Force 1 React LV8 “All Star” in “Black/Barely Green” above, and purchase the pair from stockists such as 43einhalb on March 9 for €119.95 EUR (approx. $145 USD).
