With the 2018 NBA Rising Stars Game going down this past weekend, let’s see who rocked the absolute best kicks on court during the game.
6) Bogdan Bogdanovic – Nike Kobe A.D. Mid
Bogdanovic came through with the Nike Kobe A.D. Mid that later on pushed him win the MVP award for 2018 NBA Rising Stars Game. As you probably now by now, the Kobe A.D. were designed to deliver lightweight support, responsive cushioning and excellent traction, a designed that helped the 25 years old Serbian player bring his A game on court.
5) Joel Embiid – Adidas Mad Bounce
Joel Embiid decided to opt out for Adidas Mad Bounce, one of the most interesting releases from Adidas Basketball in 2017 and also, one of the most affordable ones (currently $100 USD). The Fused Mesh, the knit upper and an interesting colorway (to say at least) helped Joel land with a decent performance as well.
You can cop Adidas’ Mad Bounce release right here in case you’re interested in owning a pair.
4) De’Aaron Fox – Nike Kyrie 3 “Mamba Mentality”
De’Aaron Fox, our first pick for the USA team, delivered his performance in the Nike Kyrie 3 “Mamba Mentality”. A dope release with a distinctive design that you can spot from anywhere in the arena.
The shoes represent a tribute to Bruce Lee and are currently retailing for $120 USD.
3) Buddy Hield – Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Rare Air”
Sacramento Kings’ SG Buddy Hield decided to go for Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Rare Air”. A safe choice if we’re talking design but also a good pick if we’re talking performance.
You can cop a similar pair at Flight Club for anywhere from $120 to $200.
2) Brandon Ingram – Adidas Crazy BYW X
Brandon Ingram, one of the most hyped up rookies last year and now a solid appearance in Laker’s 2018 rooster, decided to rock the Adidas Crazy BYW X. This is indeed an interesting choice, despite Ingram’s partnership with Adidas.
Introduced by Pharrell during the 2018 All Star Weekend, the Crazy BYW X seem more like a high fashion choice than a performance shoe. Nevertheless, Ingram delivered in them.
1) Taurean Prince – Adidas Harden Vol. 1 Custom
Our number one pick for the 2018 NBA Rising Stars Game is Taurean Prince who decided to rock a custom pair of Adidas Harden Vol. 1. The 23 years old Atlanta Hawks SF was easily one of the most distinctive players on court with his kicks that were impossible to ignore due to the design.
