40 of the Best All-Star Sneakers Since 1985

40 of the Best All-Star Sneakers Since 1985

All-Star sauce!

All-Star weekend has evolved over the years, from simple showcases to full-scale events, the NBA’s premier regular-season event is bigger and better than ever. A huge part of the weekend (for us, at least) is the sneaker game the best players in the NBA bring to the big game on All-Star Sunday. And while game-specific, flashy kicks haven’t always been in vogue (it starting gaining traction circa 2001-2004), it’s become an event in itself. But there was still a lot of heat floating around prior to that time, too. So we’ve gone back through the archives, starting at MJ’s All-Star Debut in 1985, to bring you 40 of the best All-Star Sneakers!
