The National Association of Jewlers put an end to ruby as the December birthstone exactly one hundred years ago, and maybe it’s a red diamond, but whatever stone appears on the medial heel of the ‘Christmas’ Nike LeBron X, it’s a jewel within a jewel. That’s figuratively speaking, of course, and literally, the colorway-specific inner heel medallion is set within a green and red pattern perfect for an ironic sweater party. This subtle note adds a layer of whimsy to what’s become an annual tradition, which feels appropriate for a day marked by delicious feasts, tons of gifting and the NBA’s annual network TV kickoff showcase. Stick with Sneaker News for more details on these including the release date and check out a bunch of new photos below for an idea of how they might look in your living room.
