Feb '12
adidas, the official outfitter of the National Basketball Association, unveiled the new uniform and footwear assortment for the 61st NBA All-Star in Orlando.

The 2012 NBA All-Star uniforms were designed by adidas and inspired by the 20th anniversary of the memorable 1992 NBA All-Star game which was also held in Orlando. Inspired by the Sunshine State and the fun atmosphere of NBA All-Star weekend, adidas NBA All-Star basketball shoes feature bright orange coloring to pay homage to Orlando's Orange County and the state's famous oranges.

"NBA All-Star is an exciting event that combines sports, style and entertainment unlike any other in the world," said Lawrence Norman, adidas Vice President, Global Basketball. "NBA All-Star is the premier event to showcase adidas' court-to-street heritage on basketball's biggest stage and bring it to fans around the world. We'll also leverage the league's best big man Dwight Howard throughout the weekend at events, appearances and on the adidas Basketball Facebook page to bring the excitement to fans in Orlando and our global online community."

The All-Star jerseys feature oversized East and West All-Star block lettering that was inspired by 1992 jerseys. The jackets and jerseys feature dip-dyed hardwood heather pattern inspired by the floor of the Orlando Arena where the game was held. The tonal blue and red, and three stripes silver and gold accent coloring on the jerseys and short sides will make the uniforms stand out on court. The woven NBA All-Star shorts are inspired by board shorts and also feature a sublimated mesh pattern for high performance and breathability.

On-court warm-ups feature functional stretch denim pants and lightweight windbreaker style, full-zip jackets with tonal grey coloring with East (Blue) and West (Red) accents for a stylish off-court look to match the laid back Florida vibe. To showcase the court to street feel, the jackets feature elbow patches and laser perforated color contrast and the pants feature mock denim stitching and pockets.

Replica NBA All-Star jerseys are available at retail with a full range of NBA All-Star apparel from adidas including men's and women's tee shirts, track jackets and headwear. Available at the NBA Store at Jam Session, Orlando Magic Team Shop at Amway Center, the adidas Store at Orlando Crossing.

Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose will wear the special orange colorway of their newest adidas signature shoes during the NBA All-Star Game. Five-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard will sport the adiPower Howard 2, while two-time NBA All-Star Derrick Rose will wear the adizero Rose 2.5. adidas Originals will release a special version of the AR2.0.

The fourth signature shoe for reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose, at 11 ounces the adizero Rose 2.5 is the lightest signature basketball shoe he has ever worn to provide next level speed and support for the second half of the season and NBA Playoff run. Inspired by the adizero Crazy Light, the upper features premium SPRINTFRAME and enlarged SPRINTWEB area to reduce weight, add support and allow maximum control. The GEOFIT memory foam collar provides optimum comfort and fit, especially with Derrick's adizero Speed Wrap Ankle Brace.
