A Recap Of LA: What Kicks Did Basketball’s Best Rock?

From insane dunks to incredible shots, this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles lived up to all the hype. And while Devin Booker won the 3-Point Contest, Donovan Mitchell claimed the Dunk Contest title, and LeBron James hosted the All-Star Game MVP trophy, everything off the court was just as exciting. The biggest brands in basketball held exclusive, celebrity-packed events, showcasing the freshest kicks and latest gear. If you love sneakers and basketball, there was no better place to be.

Lucky for you, Detroit guard Langston Galloway and Chris Chase (Nightwing2303 from Weartesters.com) were on the ground in the City of Angels and they got VIP access to all the action. Check it out below:


Sneaker Events

Langston took to his YouTube Channel, LG Kicks, to let his fans know that he would be on the scene at the weekend’s big events.

They hit up Under Armour and got a sneak peek at some of the hottest HOVR Phantom colorways.

  • Under Armour HOVR 5
  • Under Armour HOVR 2
  • Under Armour HOVR 3
  • Under Armour HOVR 4

Chris got an inside look at Jordan Brand Studio 23 and posted a video of it to his Nightwing2303 YouTube channel.


Donovan Mitchell won the Dunk Contest, and also had one of the best shoes with this custom adidas Dame 4 ‘Venom’ colorway that he rocked over All-Star Game Weekend.
