Nike Basketball Christmas Pack // LeBron 11, Kobe 8 & KD 6 (1)

words // Brandon Richard

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.

words // Brandon Richard

This weekend, the Nike Kobe 8 will arrive in a new ‘Mine Grey’ colorway that sneaks up on you just like the Black Mamba himself.

The grey upper mimics the look of a snake’s skin — then it attacks bold purple hits on the laces, inner lining, tongue and Swoosh. Red works the Kobe logo, heel details and a speckle along the shoe’s purple midsole, while a grey outsole caps off the look below.

Pick up these new Kobe Bryant shoes here this Saturday, November 30 for $140 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.

words // Brandon Richard

The Nike Kobe 8 System ‘Pit Viper’ is described as the first Kobe 8 to evolve snake aesthetic from inspiration to photo-realism. With its visceral scale pattern, the venomous viper was chosen for this pair.

Purple and Green Glow were selected to represent the pit viper’s nocturnal nature. Its dominant predator instincts align with the dynamic fit and traction of the Kobe 8.

These new Kobe Bryant shoes will release here this Saturday, October 5. Enjoy a detailed preview below.
