Nike Basketball Signatures of Christmas Past

December 18th, 2013 by / 31

The tradition of special Christmas colorways for signature sneakers is one of the longer running ones with respect to Nike Basketball. That day has consistently been an important one for footwear enthusiasts thanks to the countless energy colorways and the occasional brand new model debuted during the Christmas day games. The theme has, out of necessity, evolved over the years beyond the standard red, white, and green. Just take a look at this year’s shoes for example; you’ve got the LeBron 11 featuring a snowflake decal, the KD 6 with Fair Isle sweater style graphics, and a Kobe 8 with scales practically jumping off the body of the shoe. The Christmas sigs by Nike have evolved from much simpler forms of previous years, and we can only expect the Swoosh to get even more festive in coming years.

You might be asking yourself why we’re ignoring the various stray Christmas shoes that also hit on that day like the Hyperdunks and others from Nike or the pairs of other brands that ended up on the hardwood. Consider this: Nike Basketball is in better shape than it’s ever (possibly in history) been thanks to this trio of elite NBA players. It is their signature lines that have been carrying the weight in the sneakerhead world, so we’re starting things off with the first time the full trio hit the court in a set of colorways clearly inspired by Christmas: December of 2009. Continue reading for a breakdown of Nike Basketball’s signature Christmas releases from then on and let us know down in the comments which is your favorite of all these Durant, Kobe, and LeBron sneakers.

Still trying to find a pair of the Christmas LeBron 8 V/2 in my size. It's my grail.


IMO; Dopest Christmas sneaker so far is the Kobe 7. The Kobes always look fresh but it's just something about them 7s!!! This year I'm hoping to cop the KDs and the Kobes. Two dope ass shoes. Lebrons are nice, but I still cant' get with that box price. Hottest 11s so far to me is the BHMs and the Parachute gold.

Kobe's chistmas kicks were always nice. Glad they are trying something new with the LeBrons kinda of tired of the "Red base-Green accent" design
