Nike Unveils 2014 Christmas Basketball Collection

Nike has unveiled its 2014 “Basketball Christmas Collection.”

The holiday-inspired line includes riffs on Nike’s signature basketball styles, including Kobe Bryant’s Kobe 9, Kevin Durant’s KD 7 and LeBron James’ LeBron 12.

The Kobe 9 Knit Stocking features a red and white Flyknit upper – a cue from knit stockings – as well as a marbled outsoles inspired by candy canes. Inside of the shoe, the tongue reads “Mamba’s Greetings.” The KD 7 Egg Nog also carries on with the red and white colorway, making use of a scarlet Hyperposite heel with glossy flecks (to embody the vibe of condensation on a glass of  eggnog).

As for the LeBron 12 Akron Birch, the shoe combines an emerald green base with a birch tree pattern inspired by LeBron’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. For an added festive touch, the tongue loop features a snowflake.

The three styles hit Nike.com and select retail locations on December 26.
