KOBE X, Kobe Bryant’s signature shoe for Christmas.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.
KD8, Kevin Durant’s signature shoe for Christmas.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.
KYRIE 2, Kyrie Irving’s signature shoe for Christmas.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.
The 2015 Nike Basketball Christmas Collection will be available globally Dec. 26 on nike.com and at select retail locations.
