All-gold Air Jordans for NBA All-Star Weekend: That’s one of many special projects Jordan Brand has created for this weekend’s festivities in New Orleans.

The brand’s pop-up event at 221 Chartres St. features some of the most memorable Air Jordan sneakers on display in trophy-esque metallic gold looks.

Based on the images and video shared by @J23app, it appears as though these golden Air Jordans aren’t suitable for wear and are instead promotional pieces created specifically for the All-Star Weekend space. Nevertheless, the collection is impressive and would likely be met with enthusiasm from sneakerheads if it were to make its way to retail shelves.

Although you can’t buy these all-gold Air Jordans, today the brand released limited-edition “All-Star” colorways of the Air Jordan 6 and the Air Jordan XXXI. They’re available now from nike.com for $225 and $185, respectively.

As FN celebrates Michael Jordan’s 54th birthday, take a look back on the 13 Air Jordans that have released since his 2003 retirement here.
