While the best in the league head down to Dallas, Texas for the 2010 NBA All-Star Game there will also be a boat load of A-list and B-list celebrities in tow heading down to Cowboy Stadium to partake in the Celebrity All-Star Game. Ensuring they’ve got some fresh kicks to wear adidas Consortium stepped up to the plate and designed these Artillery Mid’s for the participants of both teams. The sneakers feature heavy detailing with one sporting a predominantly blue color scheme obviously for the East and the other in a predominantly red color scheme for the West. All your usual Artillery features are included such as the Torsion system and the padded ankle support which is sure to sport a lot of those weak celebrity ankles. Heavy detailing is seen throughout with an All-Star 2010 stamp on the heel, a NBA man logo on the lateral side of the upper in the shape of the Texas, and another All-Star 2010 hit on the Artillery tongue tag. There’s also iridescent detailing on the tongue and on a small piece of the heel.
Usually releases such as these don’t hit retailers and are only sold within the NBA All-Star Weekend venue however for the first time a very limited run will land in the hands of distributors outside the Dallas venue. Only 10 pairs of both the East and West versions will be made available to 5 selected adidas Consortium distributors while a total of 150 pairs will be available at Cowboy Stadium during NBA All-Star Weekend.
