With some big-time NBA plans in schedule for Christmas Day, Nike has rolled out the red carpet for its three marquee endorsees and their respective signature shoes in a special Christmas Day Collection called “Signal Your Color”. Each colorway is designated a special tag-line with the primary message being that of forward progress; the Nike LeBron 8 V.2 features a vibrant “Run on Red” colorway with green laces and a speckled midsole, the Nike Zoom KD III utilizes a “No Yield For Yellow” package with a tonal yellow upper with hints of OKC blue and orange, and the Nike Zoom Kobe VI boasts a “Green Means Go” colorway that embodies Kobe Bryant’s continual push for greatness. All three special colorways will be on display this Christmas during the Miami Heat/Los Angeles Lakers match-up as well as during the Oklahoma City Thunder’s showdown with the Denver Nuggets, and will be available for purchase on the following day. Continue reading for a detailed look at all three colorways and let us know which of three is your favorite.
LEBRON 8 V.2 CHRISTMAS DAY “RUN ON RED”
* Lebron will debut his second signature sneaker of the 2010-11 season, the LEBRON 8 V.2, in the “Run on Red” Christmas Day colorway against the Lakers on the 25th. Designed to be leaner and lighter as Lebron progresses into better basketball shape mid-season, the entire upper is made of Flywire and mesh technology making it 1oz lighter than the LEBRON 8 V.1 he has been wearing throughout the season thus far.
* The LEBRON 8 V.2 Christmas Day release will be available at retail starting on Dec. 26, 2010. Additional colors of the LEBRON 8 V.2 will launch at retail on Jan 8, 2011 for $160.00.
