We gave you a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VI Del Sol colorway earlier this month. This Christmas inspired colorway of the Zoom Kobe VI will be on Kobe’s feet as the Lakers take on the Miami Heat on Christmas Day. With Kobe’s passion for Christmas closely tied to his daughters and their love for the holiday, the green and red colorway takes its inspiration from the traditional Christmas tree-like colors. In fact, as Tom Luedecke discusses if you hold to of them together sole to sole they even take the shape of the Christmas tree.

The Zoom Kobe VI features the Black Mamba inspired skin-like finish that may be more appropriately named Green Mamba for Saturday’s game. The Flywire that hides beneath the snake-like finish helps the Kobe VI weigh in just a touch under the Nike Zoom Kobe V, while the heel counter offers stability for Kobe’s quick moves. Check out Kobe, or should we call him the “Venomenon,” as he unveils the Nike Zoom Kobe VI on the court for the first time this season on Saturday.
