This year Los Angeles will host the 2011 All-Star Weekend and to commemorate this Nike created a special collection of footwear. Representing and drawing inspiration from Orange County, East LA and Hollywood, the LA pack pays homage to the unique spirit of these distinct Los Angeles neighborhoods. We already presented the Orange County Pack and the Hollywood Pack, today we take a closer look at the East LA Pack.
“East LA has a pulse of its own. Steeped in Latino roots, it is one of the most iconic neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Custom cars, tattoo art and a passion for sport are all distinctive elements of the region. Home to LA’s favorite team, it’s only fitting that the colorway of the collection be blue. The pack also features a metallic finish that emulates the body paint of car and the inner sock liner features the symbolic ‘LA’ logo encompassed in a graffiti-art frame.”
It looks like an Air Force 1 will also be part of the pack and hopefully we can preview that later this week.
For now take a closer look at the Hyperfuse and Kobe VI sneakers after the jump.
