The 2019 NBA All-Star Game will see Team LeBron go up against Team Giannis, but the action on the court might just be overshadowed by the participants' fashion statements on Sunday.

This year's uniforms are designed and made by Nike, and they are stamped with the Jordan brand.

The basic colors for the two uniforms are black and white, and the black ones have red trim, while the white uniforms have blue trim.

Both are emblazoned with stars and have red, white and blue striping around the neck and shoulders.

There is a throwback feel to this year's All-Star threads because they are modeled on the first Charlotte All-Star Game outfits from the 1991 season, featuring a honeycomb pattern integrated into the NBA star logo in tribute to the host team, the Hornets.

"It was important for us to add details that honor the Charlotte community and the great fans there," said David Creech, the Jordan Brand vice president of design.

The colors used are similar to the ones used in last year's All-Star game in Los Angeles, and team logos, player names and numbers all appear in black.

In addition to the uniforms, the players' shoes will also create a stir among those in attendance and watching on television.

Blake Griffin of the Detroit Pistons will wear bright blue kicks with Air Jordan logos.

Griffin's shoes are fairly standard, but James Harden of the Houston Rockets will have sneakers that pay homage to NASCAR, including a checkered flag and other race-inspired design—Charlotte Motor Speedway isn't too far away, after all.

Sports Illustrated revealed the shoes that LeBron James is rumored to wear in Sunday night's game.
