The 2015 NBA All Star starters were just announced and Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has been voted as one of the 2 guards to represent the Eastern Conference in New York City on February 15, 2015. Alongside Wall will be Kyle Lowry, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Pau Gasol.
Designed in tandem with the 2015 NBA All-Star uniforms, the adidas NYC All-Star footwear collection is inspired by the attitude and culture of New York City basketball, music and fashion. Each shoe will feature a clean, premium aesthetic in an iconic white, black and gold color scheme. The white uppers are highlighted by subtle snakeskin textures, black accents and hits of metallic gold.
The J Wall 1 features a double layered white mesh upper for increased comfort and breathability. White leather snakeskin texture is featured around the laces, top of the tongue and ankle. Black accents include the full-length adiprene+ midsole, metallic toe cap, FITFRAME and three-stripes. The J Wall 1 NYC All-Star is finished with metallic gold J Wall logos on the tongue and lateral side.
There is no doubt that Wall deserves this All Star selection as he is averaging 17 points, 10 assists and 2 steals per game this season. The adidas J Wall 1 “NYC All-Star Edition” will be available at select adidas retailers beginning on February 13 for $115 .
