With Christmas around the corner, Nike Basketball will again be releasing exclusive holiday-themed sneakers and Kobe is the first of the big three to be unveiled. The Flyknit upper in a predominately red colorway with small glimpses of white peeking through, complemented by tonal laces and a black Swoosh. Moving down is a multicolored camo-patterned midsole and outsole featuring the red and white color scheme. Additional details include the subtle use of green on the foam insert, outsole and heel notches to round off the Christmas vibes. The exclusive Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Christmas” model is set to release the day after Christmas on December 26, online at Nice Kicks, which is the day after Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers play the Chicago Bulls.
