We can usually count on some special sneakers on the feet of NBA players on Christmas Day, but this year provided an extra-interesting batch of footwear. The marquee matchup of the day was LeBron James and the Cavs visiting L.A. to take on Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, and both stars were showing off some fresh new kicks. LeBron flaunted his all red Christmas Air Max LeBron VII’s, while Kobe debuted the Chaos edition of the Zoom Kobe V for the first time on the NBA court. Elsewhere around the NBA, there were some interesting new looks from Jordan Brand with Carmelo Anthony sporting a special Christmas edition of the Melo M6 and several other players debuting the Air Jordan Alpha 1. Dwyane Wade and teammate Quentin Richardson rocked the OG-inspired red/white/black colorway, while Ray Allen and Jared Jeffries were seen in some holiday-inspired versions of the shoe.
