New Balance probably isnt on your mind when you think of basketball sneakers, especially during an All Star weekend. But this year they have stepped out of their lane to make an appearance on the court for the the NBA all-star celebrity game.
If you watched the matchup of celebrities on the court last night, you saw Toronto’s very own Drake coach his team to victory against Kevin Hart and his USA representatives.
Premiering these sneakers for the first time is tennis star Milos Raonic on behalf of New Balance for the Celebrity All Star Game last night. The pair features a bright crimson upper with white detailing on the “N” branding and a royal blue inner liner. To top it off, the shoe includes a maple leaf on the heel and a crackled midsole for some added flare.
Check out some footage from the celebrity game below as well as up close imagery of the sneakers. The big man seemed to glide to the rim when he dunked, do you think it could’ve been the shoes? Might you pick up a pair? let us know
