Arriving just in time for the NBA All-Star Weekend, find out when and where you can get these super exclusive kicks.

With the NBA All-Star Weekend creeping around the corner, we're expecting even more sneaker styles to drop. That's not to say we haven't seen an abundance already.

But now it's time to add another to the list. Don C and Nike have joined forces to develop a statement Air Force 1 Hi. It's inspired by Chicago, which just so happens to be Don's home city.

If you're a die-hard sneaker fan, you'll notice that the silhouette has been slightly modified. In fact, it's actually a mix of all the different types of Air Forces.

You've got the Air Force 1's structure, with the Air Force 2's branded heel piece and the Air Force 3's tongue badge.

We are obsessing over the bold, rich blue colour, as well as the luxurious leather. The ocean hue represents the main colour of Chicago's flag, as well as the signature shade of American Express (the partner of this exclusive launch).

In order to balance out the blue, Don C has chosen to decorate the shoe with red graphics on the heel tab, the trim of the Swoosh and the midsole's graphics. There's also some metallic silver within the laces.

If you're keen to take a closer look inside, a Chicago flag is proudly displayed on the inner tongue, with a matching red satin sock liner.

When can you get your hands on it? The sneaker dropped 13 February at 11am EST, although it's super exclusive. It was released to American Express card members only. However, we have a feeling you'll be able to find it at re-sell sites like StockX.

The price? Considering it's an exclusive, this style is not going to be cheap. It's definitely a collector's item.
