Nike Basketball Christmas Collection: Kobe, LeBron, and KD Sneakers Unveiled (Pics)

Nike Basketball Christmas Collection

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for the sneakerhead in your life? You’ll be happy to hear that the Nike Basketball Christmas Collection has been unveiled, and it features new colorways for the Kobe 9, LeBron 12, and KD 7 sneakers. each choke-full of Christmas spirit…

…And then you’ll be disappointed to hear that they won’t be available for purchase until December 26. I guess you can always give them as a belated gift.  And what a belated gift they would be!

First in line from the Nike Basketball Christmas Collection is the Kobe 9 Knit Stocking.

Perhaps the most Christmassy of the bunch, the Kobe 9 Knit Stockings are made with Nike’s Flynit technology, and come with a special “Mamba Greetings” patch on the inside of the tongue.

Then there’s the LeBron 12 Akron Birch, which features a birch tree pattern with some other wintery elements scattered throughout—including a snowflake on the tongue.

And finally, we’ve come to the KD 7 Egg Nog.  In addition to its red, white, and green color scheme, this sneaker also features speckles throughout that are supposed to represent egg nog—which is apparently Kevin Durant’s favorite holiday beverage.

Each of the shoes from the Nike Basketball Christmas Collection sneakers will be worn by their respective player during their Christmas Day game.  That means you’ll be able to see the Kobe 9 Knit Stocking when the Lakers host the Bulls, the LeBron 12 Akron Birch when the Cavs visit the Heat, and the KD 7 Egg Nog when the Thunder take on the Spurs.

Or you could spoil the surprise and just take a look at the images below:
