  • 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend is happening in Charlotte, North Carolina from February 15-17.
  • There's plenty of excitement around the sports events and games, but the clothing and shoe releases are also a huge part of the weekend.
  • Brands like Nike, Timberland, Under Armour, and New Era are taking the opportunity to release gear that appeals to both sneaker lovers and sports fans alike.

NBA All-Star Weekend signifies a break in the regular season where the league's best players are celebrated and fans are treated with loads of entertainment. While events like the slam dunk contest, three-point contest, and East vs. West game are major focal points of the weekend, all of the accompanying clothing and sneaker releases are arguably a bigger deal.

This year, All-Star Weekend will be hosted in Charlotte, North Carolina - and Michael Jordan, who is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets and an alumnus from the University of North Carolina, has a major influence on this year's releases.

With a huge assortment of jerseys, hats, T-shirts, and, of course, footwear, these are the items that sneaker lovers and basketball fans alike will want to get their hands on this weekend.

Check them out, below:

Another hometown hero that will be participating in Sunday night’s game is Steph Curry, who grew up in Charlotte while his father was playing for the Hornets.
