Christmas Day Shoes
Nike is continuing their trend of brightly colored Christmas kicks this holiday season with releases of the Nike KD V, LeBron X, and Kobe 8 “Christmas” editions.
The Nike KD V “Christmas”, perhaps the loudest pair from the pack, features a mesmerizing Hyper Blue with a very unique all-over print. The tongue of the shoe is a bright Chilling Red, as well as the laces, which truly pops against the vibrant upper. The shoe sits on top of a translucent Atomic Green sole, and has an Atomic Green Nike Swoosh branded on the side.
The most traditional colored shoe, the Nike LeBron X “Christmas”, consists of an all red upper with a metallic sheen finish. The midsole features the same red color, but with darker red speckles that adds to the detailing of the shoe. To top the shoe off, a bright green color is used on the laces and Nike Swoosh, as well as on the translucent sole.
The Nike Kobe 8 “Christmas” is the darkest of the three shoes, but that definitely doesn’t mean it is any less loud. This shoe has an all black upper, with a multi-colored patterned design incorporated throughout. Bright red Nike Swooshes and Laces stand out against the dark background, as well does the translucent green sole.
Also make sure to check out the Jordan Melo M9 “Christmas” shoe if you are looking for something a little more subtle. This shoe has an all grey 3M upper, with red and green accents to give them a festive touch. This shoe, along with the Nike LeBron X and Nike KD V “Christmas” shoes all release on December 26th on Finishline.com.
