The more things change, the more they stay the same.  That’s one way of describing Nike Basketball’s Christmas Day 2011 pack headed up by the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Christmas’.  It’s a colorway strikingly similar to last year’s LeBron 8 V/2s, though its inclusion on what might just be the most advanced basketball shoe ever created, does indeed preserve the sense of progress building in LeBron’s signature series.  With the Zoom Kobe VII Supreme ‘Leopard’, we’re seeing a shift from last year’s all-green ‘Grinch’ getup to a more Lakers-oriented colorway, which itself has seen its supposed inspiration move from one wild jungle cat to another.  And rounding out the group is Amar’e Stoudemire’s Air Max Sweep ThruChristmas PE, a shoe previewed just like teammate Carmelo Anthony’s Xmas PEs in green and orange, now appearing with a Sport Red strap that seems far more befitting the season.  Reports had these arriving at retailers on Christmas Day, but stores like Extra Butter will be closed for the holiday and should have these in stock on Monday morning, December 26th.

In our talk with LeBron designer Jason Petrie, the man stressed again and again the importance of using the sneaker and its different releases to communicate a clear story. The drops we’ve seen for LeBron’s ninth have achieved that so far, and the ‘Christmas Day’colorway arriving soon definitely does that as well. Hopefully capturing some of the elation brought about by the return of the NBA in the heart of the holiday season, this Christmas release has held the attention of many despite fierce competition from other big-time drops in the month of December. Follow us after the jump for more images of LeBron’s piece of the upcoming Christmas Pack 2011 from Nike Basketball, and let us know in the comments if these are on your wish list. via RMK

Nike Basketball Christmas Pack 2011 – New Images

December 16th, 2011 by | 24 comments

Nike Basketball broke the red and green mold with last year’s Christmas Day Collection that featured the LeBron 8 V.2, Zoom KD III and Zoom Kobe VI in a ‘Signal Your Color’ theme.  Each shoe had its own inspiration, yet they came together to form something like a stoplight, but this time around the big three sigs each go their own way at the fork in the road.  The Nike LeBron 9 stays with the seasonal theme with its red upper adding white accents and green laces, and even the Zoom KD IV can be seen as somewhat traditional with its ornamental Metallic Bronze upper adding red laces.  And while there are also red laces and (neon) green accents on the Zoom Kobe VII Supreme, that shoe’s ‘Cheetah’ colorway takes it even further than last year’s ‘Grinch’, and is easily the most inventive and indirectly Christmas-y of the bunch.  Which of these three do you like best?  Let us know when you click through for more images, and stick with Sneaker News for updates on these December 25th releases (that’s right, more presents on Christmas!).  via 23penny1

LeBron James and the Miami Heat will tip off their 2011-12 season in the second of five Christmas Day games, this opening tilt a ‘game 7′ of sorts against defending NBA Champions, the Dallas Mavericks.  The game will be played at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, but King James is right at home with the national spotlight.  This year makes five in a row that ‘Bron’s team has been featured on the league’s annual TV showcase, and similar to his first campaign in MIA, this year sees an all-red Nike LeBron 9 ‘Christmas’ slated to commemorate the occasion.  And with the five-game tipoff schedule stuffing NBA fans’ stockings this year, will you have room under the tree for this festive LeBron 9 colorway?  Click through for some new images and let us know if red or green laces is the better look.  via HK-Kicks

Owing to a combination of the proximity to King James born date and the NBA’s annual TV showcase, Christmas colorways from Nike Basketball’s LeBron signature series are every bit as much a tradition as ‘home’ and ‘away’ looks.  This year’s offers a festive vibe similar to last year’s release, and though it doesn’t feature more than a few select white hits, the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Christmas Day’ does indeed connect with that idea of driven snow ‘purity’ thanks to its huge sweeps of tonal red.  Paired with white-ticked green laces, they’re something like an un-Tree, and these latest images show that in a small enough size (or on a large enough tree), they have the look of a sneakerhead’s favorite ornament.  Check out a run of new images after the jump and let us know where these rank on your holiday wish list.  via Kickz-Lab

Remember when you were a kid and your parents threatened to cancel your birthday or Christmas to get you back in line?  Looks like both might happen to LeBron James this year, the latest NBA lockout now threatening the league’s annual TV showcase and King James’ born date soon to follow.  Luckily, LeBron can count on at least one tiding of great cheer this holiday season, as the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Christmas’ keeps with the tradition of utilizing the holiday cheer for one of the model’s most vibrant colorways.  This time around it’s all-red with green laces just like last year’s, but the lack of speckling on the LeBron 9 edition along with the new pair’s use of a translucent sole has these feeling a different kind of frosty.  Check them out in more detail after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for the ‘Christmas Day’ LeBron 9 release date.  via MarqueeSole

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Christmas Day’

nike lebron 9 christmas 02 570x377 Nike LeBron 9 Christmas Day

LeBron James’ Nike Basketball signature series never lacks for a special Christmas Day colorway, but last year marked the first time in the King’s eight year career that the holiday edition was released on anything other than his primary regular season model.  But whereas the LeBron 8 and V/2 split duties roughly between best possible looks and ultimate performance, the Nike LeBron 9 wraps all these qualities up into a single tech-packed design whose ’Christmas Day’ colorway is perhaps even bolder than last year’s all-red V/2s.  Pictured next to the ‘Metallic Red’ Air Foamposite One we showed Gentry Humphrey holding earlier this morning, they seem even more radiant, and are practically begging the NBA to get their act together in time to salvage the league’s annual TV showcase.  Click through so you can see more and let us know if you think the ‘Christmas Day’ LeBron 9 is the best Xmas Nike LeBron sneaker yet.  via Sole Land
