Nike Basketball Signatures of Christmas Past

nike basketball christmas shoes Nike Basketball Signatures of Christmas Past

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.

KD’s love for video games shines through once again in this funky pair of Nike KD V releases that coincide with the Christmas season. The upper detailing is a nod to the crazy colors seen on tv-screens when games froze mid-frame, but the 8-bit graphics on the insole should be a clear giveaway to the inspiration! Cop these tomorrow at Nike Basketball retailers and at Nikestore, but see if you can grab one now on eBay.

The NIKE iD process for the Nike Kobe 8 iD is letting consumers getting pretty close to the inline ‘Christmas’ look thanks to that scaly treatment. While there’s no word yet on whether it will become an available option, it looks like a few samples were cooked up for a possible Nike KD V ‘Christmas’ to hit Nike iD, with that crazy static print popping up in a few different colors on the pairs pictured here. Also keep in mind that there is a precedent for this sort of thing thanks to last year’s “YOTD” NIKE iD options for the Zoom KD IV. Do you see yourself crafting a couple to purchase if the Nike KD V ‘Christmas’ iD becomes a reality? Join the discussion in the comments and stay tuned to Sneaker news as the story develops.

Nike KD V “Christmas” – Release Date

nike kd v christmas release date 1 Nike KD V Christmas   Release Date

Nike Basketball has been dropping ’Christmas Day’ editions of its signature series on December 26th for several years now, and for the second time in a row, that means a new trio from LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant.  For the reigning scoring champ, it’s the ‘Christmas’ Nike KD V, whose pixellated multicolor look was inspired by a glitch on Swoosh designer Erick Goto’s computer screen.  The theme carried over into Leo Chang’s concept to render Durant as a video game character for a fresh colorway, with Kevin dunking on the insoles as he might have imagined himself through a session with Tecmo Super NBA Basketball.  Everybody loves to get new video games for Christmas and the day after looks to have no lull thanks to new drops like this KD 5, and if you need to have yours before Durant wears his in the hotly anticipated NBA Finals rematch, a few sizes are available from InCaseYouSlept.

“Christmas” Nike KD V

November 26th, 2012 by | 15 comments

christmas nike kd v 1 Christmas Nike KD V

Early photos had a grainy quality that led to an ‘ugly sweater’ interpretation connecting an uncharacteristically colorful Nike KD V to the Christmas holiday.  And maybe there’s just the tiniest bit of that wooly flavor in there influencing the overall pattern, but these crisp new shots reveal a pixelated upper derived from classic 8-bit video game graphics.  The inspiration is made clear on a whimsical footbed depicting Kevin Durant himself dunking as explosions, lightning bolts and bonus points pop off, and now that we have a better idea of what’s in store for the ‘Christmas’ KD V, do you think they’ll make the holidays as memorable as your first experience with Duck HuntSuper Mario 64 or Halo?  Stick with Sneaker News for the release date and check out more new photos in the meantime.
