Nike Unveils Royalty Collection For All-Star Weekend

By Staff  |  01/29/2016

Nike draws inspiration from Toronto's royal heritage for its new "Royalty" collection, coming in celebration of the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend.

The pack consists of a range of footwear, each carrying special badges to commemorate its player's career achievements, along with special nods to Toronto culture, weather and more.

We see a Nike Kobe 11, as part of Kobe Bryant's farewell tour, which is influenced in color by the bright Northern Lights. There's also the Nike Air Audacity, which will be worn by Anthony Davis, and feature special "Fear the Brow" labeling along its Air Unit.  The KD 8, featuring a new graphic on its the Flyweave upper, sports removable patches and icy detailing within the sole as a nod to Toronto's snowy winter weather. Also included is the Nike Hyperlive silhouette, which will be worn by Indiana Pacers star Paul George. Finally, the LeBron 13 sports a special grey-green upper as its All-Star edition.

The Nike Basketball Royalty Collection drops Feb. 11 at and select Nike retailers.
