NBA All-Star Game Heat from Nike

As always, Nike is treating us to some special releases for the upcoming NBA All-Star game. Here's what will be on the feet of Lebron, Kobe and Kevin Durant.

My favorites were the All Star Lebron 8 V2s... just gorgeous.

The Kobe VIs with special All Star box. They don't stand out from his other VIs as much as I would expect, although the hologram on the tongue is cool. (All 3 of these shoes have holograms on the tongue featuring the player's logo and the East/West logo.)

The Nike Zoom KD IIIs (aka, Durants) were extremely lightweight, although the look and feel was too plastic-y for me.

The beauty of the box was hard for this amateur photographer to capture. It has a striped plastic casing, so when you pull the box out of the sleeve, it appears animated! Great use of old school animation technology. Nice touch for a game played next door to Hollywood...
