Nike knows Christmas Day in the NBA has become the gift that just keeps on giving…this year’s slate includes five games featuring the “Big Three” of Nike Basketball; Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. Each of which will be coming into their respective holiday games with their own festive signatures. Each colorful and eye catching as the next; check out the images below and the excerpt from The Swoosh as well.
“KOBE 8 SYSTEM
In keeping with the snake-inspired design of Kobe Bryant’s latest signature shoe, the KOBE 8 SYSTEMdraws inspiration from the rhinoceros viper. The perfect snake skin for a holiday colorway, its bright red and yellow scales mimic a Christmas tree garland – but don’t get too close.
Built for Bryant’s speed and precision, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM features a Nike Engineered Mesh upper, Lunarlon midsole and tactile traction.
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.
Technical benefits of the LEBRON X include full-length visible Nike Zoom cushioning, dynamic Flywire technology and Hyperfuse construction.
As a kid, Kevin 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.
The KD V, Durant’s most technically advanced shoe to date, features the combination of Nike Zoom (forefoot) and Nike Air (heel) cushioning along with Hyperfuse upper and dynamic heel support.
These three new colorful Christmas shoes will be available in limited quantities at select retail stores andNike.com on December 26, 2012, and are sure to motivate basketball fans to be good this holiday season.”
