With the 2014 NBA All Star Game about two weeks away, Nike took the liberty of unveiling Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant’s kicks for the game in New Orleans.
The “Gumbo League Collection” draws heavy inspiration from New Orleans history. Each sneaker represents a significant part of the cities unique culture. The Lebron 11 “Gator King” pays homage to the Gator, a symbol of royalty power and protection within the city.
It’s no secret Kobe Bryant is a huge jazz fan; The Kobe 9 Elite “Maestro” edition represents the long history of Jazz music in New Orleans.
Finally, the Zoom KD 6 “Illusion” is a nod to the voodoo and magic culture within New Orleans.
The whole pack is set to release on 2/14. Expect it to sell out FAST!
