24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Nike’s biggest basketball stars will be playing on Christmas Day which means we’ll get a glimpse of the special X-Mas day kicks a day before they come out in stores.
The 2016 Nike Basketball Collection which features the Kobe X, KD 8, Kyrie 2 and LeBron 13 has been unveiled. Check out the details and photos below via Nike.
Kobe Bryant’s tenth signature shoe features a fiery multicolor Flyknit on the toe and five golden rings on the heel, as a festive nod to the player’s championship success. Red, black and gold add subtle holiday hints.
A mix of naughty and nice, the Christmas edition KD8 features a white lateral side contrasted by a red and black medial graphic sublimated onto the Flyweave upper. The midsole wraps into the heel counter in a texture inspired by a crackled pattern representing hot coal.
The KYRIE 2 Christmas edition’s zig-zag embossed graphic mimics teeth while the shoe’s white and blue color scheme finish off this nod to the abominable snowman. An icy, transparent outsole completes the holiday look.
Fierce Midwest winters inspire the icy blue hues that run throughout the LEBRON 13, along with creative Christmas details appearing in the lace lock, pearlescent blue Hyperposite technology and shattered ice-inspired “13” on the heel.
