LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant will once again don festive kicks this holiday season, hitting the court for this year’s NBA slate of Christmas day games in special holiday editions of their signature Nike Basketball footwear. When King James hits the hardwood in Miami to take on his former team, he’ll be rocking an “Akron Birch” edition of the LeBron 12 — complete with a photorealistic birch tree camouflage upper inspired by Akron’s winters. Kevin Durant, meanwhile, will lace up an egg nog-inspired KD7 to take on the defending world champions in San Antonio while the Black Mamba will lead the Lakers in Chicago in a “Knit Stocking” edition of the Flyknit-constructed Kobe 9 Elite. The trio even sport hidden holiday-appropriate details like hexagonal snowflakes, “Fresh Since ’88” sock liner graphics, and “Mamba’s Greetings” embroidery, respectively.
Nike Basketball’s latest Christmas collection will debut on the court December 25 before hitting select retailers and Nike.com the following day in limited quantities.
