The 2014 Nike Basketball Christmas Collection has arrived with special make-ups of kobe Bryant’s Kobe 9, Kevin Durant’s KD 7 and LeBron James’s LeBron 12. The entire collection centers around the Christmas holiday, each telling their own story through festive colors and inspirations.

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Knit Stocking” goes for the traditional colors with a bright red upper. Inspired by a literal knit stocking, the Flyknit upper of the Kobe 9 Elite fits perfectly with the theme. Nike Basketball adds leather to the tongue and overlays, with a marbled candy cane pattern over the shoe’s outsole. On the liner of the shoe, we get a special “Mamba’s Greeting.”

For Kevin Durant, Nike Basketball looks to one of the favorite drinks of the holiday season for the Nike KD7 “Egg Nog”. The traditional holiday red is used along the Hyperposite heel with accented flecks to represent the condensation on a glass of egg nog. The forefoot goes complete egg nog with an off white exterior highlighted by a red Nike Swoosh. On the liner, we get a “Fresh Since 88” advert accompanied by “A Product of Seat Pleasant Maryland.”

For LeBron, Nike Basketball takes the most dramatic route for the Nike LeBron 12 “Akron Birch”. Inspired the Ohio during the winter, the Hyperposite features a camo print modeled after a birch tree pattern. Mixed within the pattern, Hyper Punch and Black are used to highlight the holiday spirit. For the Megafuse, the LeBron 12 “Akron Birch” is seen in a bright emerald green that is accented with a snowflake on the tongue.
