A holiday staple since 2010, Nike Basketball unveils its Christmas Day signature sneaker pack for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. Not only are the shoes decked out in festive colors, but they’re also linked by special logo lacelocks that convert into custom signature ornaments.
The LeBron 11 brings the spirit of Christmas to the beach. A chilly mint base works with bold red accents to create the classic look. The unique geometry of a snowflake combines with the royal palm for a kaleidoscopic ‘palmsicle’ print. A frosty translucent outsole finishes off the look below.
Ahead of next February’s Kobe 9 launch, the Kobe 8 sheds its skin. A bold modern interpretation of aggressive snake scales are attached to a translucent mesh shroud. The holiday season is reflected by hits of neon mama green and chrome gold.
Lastly, Kevin Durant’s KD 6 is a twist on traditional Christmas aesthetic. A Fair Isle style Christmas sweater pattern adorns the upper, while Christmas plaid is printed on the collar lining. Decorative detail is also worked into the metallic red Flywire upper and speckled mint green sole.
All three of these Nike Basketball shoes will be available here next Thursday, December 26 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
