Sneakers
From the ground up

Team LeBron took on Team Curry in the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, running out 148-145 winners in what was one of the better All-Star games in recent memory. For the first time, the NBA ditched the East vs West format and went with a schoolyard pick ’em style team selection, a move deemed as positive from most.

LeBron James was named All-Star MVP for the third time, finishing just shy of a triple-double with 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists.

While the world’s best basketball players went at it on the court with some surprisingly physical play, it was also a chance for the All-Stars to show off their sneaker game, flexing in player editions, unreleased signature shoes, and special edition All-Star colorways.

Scroll through the list below for some of the best footwear on show throughout the weekend, and then check out which NBA players make the most money from their endorsement deals here.
