Nike Basketball “Holiday” Pack Officially Announced

Yesterday I posted this Christmas Pack info, but today it gets officially announced with official images of the pack.  One thing that stands out the most and adds a great dynamic to this pack is the Lace Locks double up as holiday ornaments!  very cool design!  I didn’t think the Kobe 8 SS really fit into this pack with the design, but regardless I like the shoe, looking forward to this entire pack!

Info Per Nike:

The Christmas colorways of Nike Basketball signature shoes are an annual tradition. Bold designs, material executions and seasonal concepts cut through the cold weather as the LEBRON 11, KOBE 8 SYSTEM and KD VI deliver a gift to the courts. This year, three wintertime stories are linked by special logo lacelocks that connect to create custom signature ornaments.


Snow on the leaves?  Never in Miami, but this year LeBron James brings the spirit of the season to the beach with this special edition of the LEBRON 11.  A chilly mint color takes on a Christmas green with bold red accents and a frosty translucent outsole. The unique geometry of a snowflake combines with the royal palm to create a kaleidoscopic ‘palmsicle” print.


Ready to strike at any moment, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM sheds its skin to prepare for the coming of the KOBE 9 Elite in February 2014. The essence of the shedding skin is exemplified in a bold modern interpretation of aggressive snake scales attached to a translucent mesh shroud. Hits of neon mamba green and chrome gold bring in the holiday season.


Kevin Durant takes the court in Christmas red with accents of gold and mint. With a twist on traditional Christmas prints, the KD VI features a Fair Isle style Christmas sweater pattern that incorporates trees, stripes, and his number 35. Christmas plaid adorns the collar lining, with decorative detail worked into the metallic red Nike Flywire technology upper and a mint green speckled sole.  It’s the perfect outfit for this year’s festivities.

The Christmas colorways will be available in limited quantities at select retail stores and on Dec. 26, 2013, and are sure to motivate basketball fans to be good this holiday season.
