The city of Chicago is set to host NBA All-Star 2020, but the weekend represents more than the NBA season’s midway point. It’s a return to the home of pro basketball’s dynasty in the ’90s — led by basketball’s most famous ambassador.
The NBA All-Star Weekend events will go from Friday, the 14th of February to Sunday, the 16th of February. Expect the kicks to drop around that time frame.
Joining a collaborative footwear and apparel capsule, the Jordan Brand NBA All-Star 2020 collection puts the spotlight on Chicago through the theme of Unite, celebrating how basketball creates change that transcends the game.
New Beginnings Pack
A limited-release pack highlights the two silhouettes that marked Michael Jordan’s arrival with the brand: the Nike Air Ship PE, which was originally released in 1984, and the Air Jordan I High ’85 in its original form.
Women’s Air Jordan I High OG
From North Carolina to Chicago, this women’s style brings inspiration from Michael Jordan’s college and professional days onto one shoe.
