As part of the NBA’s 75th anniversary season, Nike, Inc. has unveiled its full lineup of uniforms for All-Star 2022 in Cleveland. For the first time in league history, All-Star Weekend will include uniforms by all three NIKE, Inc. brands: Nike, Jordan Brand, and Converse.
The All-Star Game itself will be outfitted by Jordan Brand for the fifth consecutive year, while Nike will outfit the Clorox Rising Stars players. The Ruffles All-Star Celebrity Game uniforms were created in collaboration with young designers from Converse community-partner organizations. All uniforms are made with a new Trilobal “Iridescent Shine” yarn that creates a color-shift effect at different angles of light.
