It's the most wonderful time of the year to spend...spend...spend...those Christmas cash on Nike Basketball's LIMITED EDITION Christmas offerings. Not made by Santa's elves, but by Chinese factory workers and delivered by a guy who looks like Santa but works for FedEx, these special Christmas colorways are debuting on the feet of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant on Christmas day and if you don't have to work the next day, they too can be on your feet on December 26. So bring your mom, your cousins and your baby momma's mommas to the nearest Nike Basketball retailers and spend those Christmas cash on Nike Basketball's latest Christmas offerings.
KOBE 8 SYSTEM
In keeping with the snake-inspired design of Kobe Bryant’s latest signature shoe, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM draws inspiration from the rhinoceros viper. The perfect snake skin for a holiday colorway, its bright red and yellow scales mimic a Christmas tree garland – but don’t get too close.
Built for Bryant’s speed and precision, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM features a Nike Engineered Mesh upper, Lunarlon midsole and tactile traction.
Furthering the diamond inspiration of the LEBRON X, the design team unearths the rarest of diamond colors, red, to serve as the creative muse for this colorway. Highlighted by a sun-washed green, the shoe also features a metallic-like reflection on the vibrant red upper.
Technical benefits of the LEBRON X include full-length visible Nike Zoom cushioning, dynamic Flywire technology and Hyperfuse construction.
As a kid, Kevin Durant recalls getting a video game system one Christmas. Inspired by video game graphics, Nike designers created the upper design, sockliner graphic and tongue tab logo for Durant’s special Christmas Day shoe.
The KD V, Durant’s most technically advanced shoe to date, features the combination of Nike Zoom (forefoot) and Nike Air (heel) cushioning along with Hyperfuse upper and dynamic heel support.
