The NBA All-Star game will be in Houston on Feb. 17 at the Toyota Center and this year's jerseys will be representative of the host city.

According to the NBA, the Adidas' uniforms were inspired by the aeronautical history of Houston. The jerseys have a camo pattern that "evokes the world's fastest fleet of aircraft with the classic silhouette of a basketball net."

The West jerseys are red and the East jerseys are royal blue. The Adidas' logo will be featured on the jersey and shorts. And, the uniform lettering and numbers are made to look like the stenciled style on jets.

"The NBA All-Star Game is an exciting time to unite Adidas' line of performance and style products to celebrate the court-to-street style that runs through basketball culture around the world," said Lawrence Norman, Adidas Vice President, Global Basketball, via NBA.com. "2013 marks Adidas' sixth season designing NBA All-Star uniforms and every year we look forward to introducing performance innovations that help the best basketball players in the world lift off and take their games to the next level in front of a global audience."

Even the warm-ups were created with aviation in mind. They feature metal zippers made with a finish like the ones used on planes. Each warm-up jacket will be customized for each player to note career accomplishments.
