NBA All-Star Weekend 2013 Recap : How Did You Do?

NBA All-Star weekend 2013 has now come and gone. With that, plenty of shoes released. How did you do?
Both Nike and Jordan Brand went out all again this year for the 2013 NBA All-Star festivities held in Houston, Texas. From Jordan Brand, the debut of the latest Air Jordan model, the Air Jordan XX8 was a successful release in two colorways. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG black/varsity royal was one of the hardest pairs to get and, the "Stealth" Pack featuring an Air Jordan 1 Retro Mid, Air Jordan 3 Retro, Jordan CP3.VI and Jordan Melo M9 rounded out things from JB.

Nike Sportswear de-classified their "Area 72" Collection featuring the debut of the all new Nike Barkley Posite Max along with a Nike Lunar Force 1 Fuse, Nike Blazer Mid, Nike Vandal High and Nike Air Force Max 2013. Then, Nike Basketball unleashed their "Extraterrestrial" Collection featuring the Nike LeBron X, two versions of the Nike Kobe 8 System+ and, the Nike KD V. Lastly, a clean colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Pro Low was released under the radar.

With so many releases, many people had to figure out what pair(s) they were going to go after and give themselves game plans for what to try to go after if their first choice(s) didn't pan out. The biggest surprise of them all was how well the Air Jordan XX8 did. It sold out online from all the major retailers, which was something no one expected for many reasons. Now I personally like the Air Jordan XX8 however, that $250 price tag is pretty high. Irregardless, this past weekend showcased some of the best releases of 2013 so far so my final question is, what did you go after and what did you end up with?
