Footaction style shines at the NBA All-Star game

Rachel Johnson, who is a personal stylist for NBA players, Lebron James, Chris Paul and Ama're Stoudemire partnered with Footaction USA at the 2014 NBA All-Star game in New Orleans and fitted players Andre Drummond and Michael Carter-Williams with clothes from Footaction. Johnson added a great point that many customers to the website could keep in mind which is they could pair items together with items currently in their wardrobe. It is a financial and technical point that offers flexibility to many males--you don't have to spend a lot of money to get a look (although you can) but you can add to the comfort level in your wardrobe with individual pieces. Johnson helped Carter-Williams combine a coat from his own wardrobe with a v-neck tee shirt and pants from the Footaction line. She added some suspenders to the pants which hung off of his waist to add some flare.

Johnson dressed Drummond with a Nike letterman's sports jacket, a black t-shirt, black pants and black Jordan sneakers along with a skull cap in his style fitting. Then together, they went through a rack of clothing where Drummond picked out a piece and told Johnson why he liked the piece. This also illustrates a great style point and fits the Footaction #OWNIT theme which is, that males can experiment with different pieces of clothing which make them feel comfortable to be themselves. The male body type and silhouette can get blurred out quickly when he is wearing similar colors and designs as other males therefore, taking baby steps with different fits, textures and colors is good to do. Color and flare is not off-limits: Drummond selected a long sleeve graphic print shirt of an American flag with smaller graphic prints over the shirt. Johnson then gave him an old, circa mid 1990's Detroit Pistons logo cap to wear with the shirt to sit courtside while attending the All-Star game.
