The NBA All-Star Weekend might be an even bigger weekend for sneakers than it is for basketball. Every year, major sneaker companies make special drops for the annual All-Star event, and this year's drops definitely don't disappoint.
Keep reading for a detailed look at some of this weekend's biggest drops and for information on drop dates, prices, and more.
With All-Star Weekend taking place in Chicago this year, you'd expect Jordan to come through with some exciting drops -- and you'd be right.
First is the Air Jordan 1 High OG "UNC to Chicago," which features a reed toe box and outsole for MJ's time with the Bulls, and a blue Swoosh and heel for his time at UNC.
This women's colorway drops on February 13 for $170 retail at Nike SNKRS and other select retailers.
Part of Nike's collection for the 2020 All-Star Weekend is the Nike Kyrie 6 "Trophies." This new Kyrie 6 colorway is designed to celebrate MJ's and the Bulls' 1996 championship.
The shoe features a solid red base with black and gold accents throughout the shoe, a speckled outsole, and “06/16/96” and “06/19/16” printed on the shoe as a nod to MJ's and Kyrie's championships.

After being teased for years, Yeezy's first basketball shoe, dubbed Yeezy Basketball "Quantum," is dropping this All-Star Weekend.
According to Yeezy Mafia, there are two versions dropping: a basketball version as well as a lifestyle version. The build is similar to the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 but features a taller ankle collar, reflective detailing, and suede overlays.
The Yeezy Basketball "Quantum" will debut during the All-Star Weekend and will be available for a retail price of $250.
Nike's All-Star Weekend also includes a special collaboration with Chicago-based Just Don creator Don C.
The Just Don x Air Force 1 High "All-Star" features a bright blue base with red accents throughout to imitate the Chicago flag. The shoe also combines features from the Air Force 1, 2, and 3 as well as the Chicago flag stitched on the bottom of each tongue.
This Don C x Nike collab drops on February 15 for a retail price of $200.
Jordan is also dropping a new Jordan 3 colorway as part of its All-Star Weekend collection.
The Jordan 3 "Unite," aka "Red Cement," features a solid red tumbled leather upper, elephant print panels, "Nike Air" branding on the heel, and grey and black accents.
There will also be a limited, Chicago-only release of this shoe during All-Star Weekend which will feature "Nike CHI" branding on the heel instead of "Nike Air."
Look for this colorway to drop on February 15 for $200 retail at select retailers.
