NBA Christmas Kicks: Lebron, Kobe, and KD!
“With Nike and KD, myself and Kobe, we always try to do something special for the Sneaker Heads on Christmas, and bring a nice color, a nice flavor,” James said. “With KD having a nice color and Kobe having a nice color, I have the red with green on Christmas. “It’s a great day. It’s a great day for basketball. You have five games on Christmas, and we want the Sneaker Heads to be excited about the shoes that we’re going to be wearing, so it should be cool.” – foxsports
Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant will be wearing these brand new bright colored kicks by Nike (to be released) today on Christmas! These kicks can go compliment the jerseys, Adidas already unveiled for Christmas Day! Check out the sneaker specs below!
LEBRON X: 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.
KOBE 8 SYSTEM: In keeping with the snake-inspired design of 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. The shoe features a Nike Engineered Mesh upper, Lunarlon midsole and tactile traction.
KD V: As a kid, 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. (courtesy foxsports)
