As Christmas draws ever-closer, Nike Basketball presents three seasonal versions of the Kobe 8 System, LeBron X and KD V. Kobe’s signature shoe draws inspiration from the rhinoceros viper and features bright red and yellow scales that mimic a Christmas tree garland. The LeBron X harnesses a red diamond colorway accented by a sun-washed green and also features a metallic-like reflection on the vibrant upper. Finally, the KD V is inspired by that gift everyone relishes receiving on Christmas: a new video game system. Nike designers created the upper design, sockliner graphic and tongue tab logo for Durant’s special Christmas Day shoe with that in mind – blending these details with a combination of Nike Zoom (forefoot) and Nike Air (heel) cushioning along with a Hyperfuse upper and dynamic heel support. All three sneakers release at various Nike accounts on December 26, 2012.
