Is Jordan Brand Already Making Air Jordans for Next Year’s NBA All-Star Game?

It’s been more than a decade since Michael Jordan last hit the hardwood as an NBA All-Star, but his namesake brand is still churning out special-edition sneakers for the annual game involving basketball’s best.

The latest model to receive the “All-Star” treatment is the Air Jordan 6, which is set to drop in a premium iridescent colorway in February. The standout feature on the upcoming sneaker is its color-shifting leather upper, which alternates between shades of black, blue, and green depending on the lighting in which they’re viewed, resulting in a chameleon-like look.

This has been an uncharacteristically quiet year for the Air Jordan 6, with just one adult release so far during 2016 in the form of October’s “Metallic Gold” Premium style. Before the year closes out, the sneaker will also drop in a “Black Cat” colorway on Dec. 30 for $190.

NBA All-Star Weekend 2017 kicks off in New Orleans on Feb. 17, which is also the same day these Air Jordans are set to release for $225. However, with months to go until the launch, it’s possible that release details could change before then.
