Nike Basketball celebrates the holidays with Christmas editions of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James’ signature shoes.
The Kobe 9 gets a festive makeover, highlighting its knitted aesthetic with a red and white Flyknit upper, taking inspiration from a knit stocking, while marbled outsole accents resemble candy canes. The KD7 carries a story personal to Durant, paying tribute to his favorite holiday beverage, egg nog. A red Hyperposite heel integrates glossy flecks emulating the condensation on a glass of egg nog. And lastly, the emerald green base of the LeBron 12 combines with the shoe’s photorealistic camouflage upper on the Hyperposite shell, which is inspired by Akron, Ohio’s winter weather and includes a birch tree pattern. Black and Hyperpunch micro dots integrate into the camo pattern for a seasonal touch.
The Nike Basketball 2014 “Christmas” collection drops worldwide Dec. 26 at Nike.com and select retail locations.
