All-Star Weekend 2024 was not just a showcase of basketball’s finest talents but also a parade of the most innovative and stylish sneakers of the year. Brands pulled out all the stops, athletes flaunted exclusive kicks, and sneakerheads were left in awe. Here’s a rundown of the best sneakers that hit the court and the streets during the star-studded weekend.

Jordan Tatum 2 “Easter”

During the 2024 NBA All-Star Game, Jayson Tatum not only showcased his on-court skills for Team Giannis and the Eastern Conference but also debuted his vibrant Jordan Tatum 2 “Easter” sneakers. Scoring 20 points with 3 rebounds and 3 assists, Tatum’s performance was complemented by the eye-catching design of his second signature shoe with Jordan Brand. The “Easter” edition, featuring a pastel color palette with soft pink and mint green accents, perfectly captured the spirit of the spring holiday, making a statement both in play and style.

adidas AE 1″The Future”

During the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend, Anthony Edwards, the dynamic guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves, showcased his first signature shoe with adidas, the AE 1. This “All-Star” edition of the AE 1, designed for Edwards’ appearance in the All-Star Game, featured an iridescent casing on the side panels of a black mesh upper, highlighted by Edwards’ signature adidas logo in neon yellow on the tongue and matching Three Stripes branding on the heel. An icy translucent outsole completed the eye-catching design.

New Balance Two Wxy V4 “Gamer Tag”

Tyrese Maxey, the Philadelphia 76ers’ rising star, turned heads not only with his on-court skills but also with his footwear, sporting the New Balance Two Wxy V4 “Gamer Tag” shoes. The “Gamer Tag” pack by New Balance, released in conjunction with the All-Star festivities, draws inspiration from vintage gaming, blending athletic performance with nostalgic design elements. Maxey’s performance, highlighted by a memorable half-court shot during the skills competition, was complemented by the sneakers’ vibrant “Neo Flame” colorway, gaming-inspired details, and nods to classic console aesthetics.

Curry 4 FloTro ‘Curry Jam’

Brandin Podziemski, a shooting guard for the Golden State Warriors, debuted the all-new Curry 4 FloTro Low during the Rising Stars Game. The pair had the words “RIP BRATE” written on the midsole to honor the late Warriors coach, Dejan Milojević, who passed away earlier this year. The pair was also seen on the feet of the greatest shooter of all time and winner of the 2024 3-point contest Stephen Curry.

Nike LeBron 21 Prime Year PE

LeBron James stepped onto the court during the 2024 NBA All-Star Game wearing the Nike LeBron 21 “Prime Year” PE, a sneaker inspired by NFL legend Deion Sanders’ iconic Air DT Max 96. This special edition not only celebrated LeBron’s record 20th NBA All-Star appearance but also paid homage to Sanders, affectionately known as “Prime Time,” and his illustrious career in both football and baseball. This pair mirrors the distinctive design elements of Sanders’ signature shoe, featuring the same claw mark striping and a color scheme that nods to Sanders’ current role as the head coach for the Colorado Buffaloes.

adidas Crazy 8 “All-Star”

During the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend, the adidas Crazy 8 made a triumphant return, this time on the feet of Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons during the celebrity game. Parsons, who clinched the MVP award with his standout performance, sported a new iteration of the iconic sneakers. Unlike the original, this updated version features the number “98” embroidered on it, commemorating the year the pair first debuted rather than Kobe Bryant’s jersey number “8.” The adidas Crazy 8, which originally launched during Kobe Bryant’s first NBA All-Star Game appearance in 1998, made a striking comeback this year. It retained its distinctive Core Black, Regal Purple, and Cloud White color scheme, paying homage to Bryant’s enduring legacy while celebrating a new chapter of All-Star history.

Travis Scott x Jordan Jumpman Jack TR

During the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend, the sneaker world was abuzz with the debut of the Travis Scott x Jordan Jumpman Jack TR “Thunder Blue.” Spotted on billionaire Michael Rubin, this collaboration between Travis Scott and Jordan Brand adds a fresh chapter to Scott’s signature line. The sneaker features a striking Black and Thunder Blue color scheme, with a canvas base, leather overlays, and Scott’s signature reverse Swoosh and Cactus Jack branding. Set for a Fall/Winter 2024 release, the sneaker will retail for $200.

All-Star Weekend 2024 was a testament to the ever-evolving sneaker culture in basketball. As the lines between performance gear and fashion continue to blur, these sneakers stand out as symbols of personal expression, technological advancement, and the unifying power of sports.
