No NBA All-Star game would be complete without a new set of uniform and footwear styles. Today adidas unveiled the All-Star uniforms that the game’s top ballers will don in Orlando on February 26th. Designers took full advantage of the site of the 61st All-Star game, incorporating a “Florida vibe” into the new attire. The gear also took inspiration from the uniforms worn in the memorable 1992 All-star game, which also took place in Orlando.
Outlandish on-court styles have been the all-star norm as of late but the 2012 gear evokes a nice vintage feel. The jerseys feature oversized East and West All-Star block lettering that was inspired by 1992 jerseys. The jackets and jerseys feature a dark-to-light, “dip-dyed” hardwood heather pattern inspired by the floor of the Orlando Arena where the game was held. In keeping with the Florida vibe, the NBA All-Star shorts are inspired by board shorts.
According to the brand, additional all-star fashions include warm-ups with stretch denim pants, full-zip jackets with tonal grey coloring with East (Blue) and West (Red) accents for a stylish off-court look to match the laid back Florida vibe. To showcase the court to street feel, the jackets feature elbow patches and laser perforated color contrast and the pants feature mock denim stitching and pockets.
To take the Florida theme one step further, adidas’ NBA All-Star sneakers were created in bright orange hues, to pay homage to Orlando’s Orange County and the state’s famous oranges. Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose will wear the special orange colorway of their newest adidas signature shoes during the NBA All-Star Game. Fans can find the All-Star gear at NBA Store at Jam Session, Orlando Magic Team Shop at Amway Center, the adidas Store at Orlando Crossing and NBAStore.com.
