Although some of Adidas’ biggest stars such as Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard and New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose won’t be playing in the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, that didn’t stop the brand from creating special-edition “All-Star” colorways for its signature ballers.

As it did with Houston Rockets guard and Western Conference starter James Harden’s signature Harden Vol. 1 model, Adidas has applied the colorful “All-Star” treatment to Lillard’s Dame 3 sneaker and Rose’s D Rose 7 Primeknit.

Each makeup in this collection uses a consistent palette of gray, orange and purple shades, with some models — such as the Harden Vol. 1 pictured above — opting for more subdued looks.

The “All-Star” Harden Vol. 1 is built with a gray Primeknit upper and finished off with a gray leather toe overlay for protection. Color accents appear in the form of orange laces, a purple liner and a gradient fade outsole that blends both hues.

Despite being snubbed from the All-Star Game for the third consecutive year, Lillard is getting in on the festivities, too, with a special makeup of his Dame 3 signature shoe. Far from subtle, this colorway blends varying shades of gray, black and silver with attention-grabbing dashes of orange and purple throughout.

Sticking with the colorful theme, Rose’s D Rose 7 Primeknit signature shoe has also been spotted in an “All-Star” colorway. There’s even a matching Crazylight Boost Low, although that model is not tied to a specific player.

No release date has been announced for the Adidas “All-Star” collection, but the official adidas.com images seen here often indicate a launch is forthcoming.

The 2017 NBA All-Star Game is set for Feb. 19 in New Orleans and will air on TNT.
