Check out photos of Nike's new NYC All-Star kicks.

The 2015 NBA All-Star Game hits, as Jay-Z once said, the concrete jungle that is New York City. Inevitably, Nike Basketball is there to celebrate the Big Apple's rich basketball history with its footwear.

Nike Basketbal NYC All-Star Collection

Today, Nike unveiled its NYC All-Star collection, featuring the KYRIE 1, LeBron 12, KD 7 and the brand new Kobe X. The design of each pair of kicks was inspired by examples of iconic architecture from each of the five boroughs.

Kobe X NYC All-Star

The Kobe X features a black upper with a metallic swoosh and tongue. The outsole shows off a mixture of volt and orange colors, taken from the Unisphere that symbolized the 1964 World's Fair.

KD 7 NYC All-Star

The KD 7 sports a silver upper, a red strap and a faint blue coloring lining the outsole. It represents the Brooklyn Bridge.

KYRIE 1 NYC All-Star

The KYRIE 1, inspired by NYC's City Hall subway station, also sports a silver upper, with a black swoosh and an icy blue front sole.

LeBron 12 NYC All-Star

Finally, the LeBron 12 represents the Flatiron Building in midtown Manhattan, presenting a white upper offset by greens, silvers and blues throughout. Check out the video player above for more detailed photos of each shoe.
