The mid-2010s was the height of Nike Basketball’s collective holiday series, spearheading a synonymous Christmas theme across each of their signature solutions. While last season’s installment centered around a Museum aesthetic that preserved the greatness of their athletes, this year the Beaverton brand’s Greater Than series of on-court footwear will serve as the annual thematic cohort.
Utilizing the Zoom Cut 2, GT Jump 2 and the GT Hustle 2, the upcoming collection spreads a litany of Christmas-time decorations across each model, like the Nike branded To and From gifting tassels. Following a metallic candy cane treatment, the GT Cut 2 sees its heel coated in a shimmering “Silver Metallic” that’s accented by a cream-white midsole and green and red complements. In a similar vein, the GT Hustle 2 is anchored by the season’s synonymous two-toned treatment as a vibrant crimson animates the entirety of the upper with seldom green and silver accents paired with cursive Nike embroidery at the heel that rings in the yuletide cheer.
Standing in stark opposition, the GT Jump 2 mirrors the aesthetic of a chilling winter blizzard with a light grey upper and a collection of icy blue contrasts. While each pair explores a slightly different design, the upcoming collection sees a few similarities between mismatched green and red laces and intricate snowflake detailing that ascertains each effort.
While a release date hasn’t been confirmed, expect the Nike Greater Than Christmas pack to debut in the next few weeks. In the meantime, enjoy a detailed look at each pair below.
