Nike Basketball’s Christmas Day 2011 Pack doesn’t have the cohesive theme that last year’s big three shared, but even without the unified backstory, each of these new pairs is arguably better than its counterpart from last year. The LeBron 9 is quite similar to last year’s V/2s, so this new one wins on tech upgrades while the Zoom Kobe VII looks even wilder as a ‘Cheetah’ than last year’s model did posed as The Grinch. And for Kevin Durant’s Nike Zoom KD IV, it’s a metallic bronze upper giving these a more upscale feel compared to the bright yellow KD3s, a look that brings just the right amount of bling to the holiday set. These new images remind us these ship with black and red laces, and though they’re expected in select stores on Christmas Day, the release info remains something of a mystery. Click through to see the details that are finalized on the ‘Christmas’ Zoom KD IV and stick with Sneaker News for word on the Chrismas Pack’s availability. via HC
Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Christmas’
They're not as dope as the other colors that have dropped..but they're cool. Too monochrome for me though..the red laces would look more natural on the shoe if red were accented more too.
LOL the kd's are and have always been ugly. its really funny they drop a few hypebeast limited flashy color releases and now everyone loves kd's. nike got yall on a string. lMAOO
diyam- these could of been a lot more better. I think oxidized Copper would of been way more original- but these are still dope. They are dropping KD4's back to back- man. slow down Nike.
Not one of the best kd4's you'll see this year but its not bad def could do without those extra red laces though
I get that it's a Christmas shoe... but I really don't think the red laces go well with these. Other than that I like em'
i wanted the nerfs so bad and i overslept that day! O.o here are kinda cool though but i want these or the nerfs to actually ball in not to hhypebeast and resell for $1000 like ppl are doing with the nerfs smh :(
Some of us have been legit kd fans for a while. If you just noticed the nerfs, you don't even know what you're missing
