Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Christmas”

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Christmas” is headed to retailers on December 26th, 2014. There’s only a handful of Christmas games left in Kobe’s career, and it’s easy to forget that it was his battles with former teammate Shaquille O’Neal that helped turn the 25th of December into a marquee time to watch NBA basketball. This year he’s skipping out on the Grinch theme for a bullseye red aesthetic as he continues to shoot his way into the record books. His Kobe 9 Elite stands out with Bright Crimson throughout the flyknit upper while a unique pattern arrives on the midsole to offset the sparse greens found on the heel stitching and insole.

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Christmas is a release that can look fresh while wearing on the court, in the streets or simply just chilling with your boys. This Kobe 9 is inspired by the knitted stockings hanging over the fireplace – pretty cozy when you start to think about it.The Kobe 9 Elite Christmas features a Red-and-White Flyknit upper, with leather textures on the tongue and overlays giving the shoe a premium feel, accented by a marbled outsole resembling candy canes. Inside, the shoe reads “Mamba’s Greetings,” a hidden detail from Bryant on the inner tongue.

Nike Basketball spreads the holiday cheer again this year with the 2015 Christmas pack, featuring the LeBron 12, KD 7, and the sneaker we’re here to remind you about right now, the Kobe 9 Elite. Kobe’s festive addition to the Christmas pack outfits the high-top Kobe 9 Elite in a jolly red and white blended Flyknit upper with a Christmas camo sole unit and a special “Mamba’s Greeting” tag on the interior of each tongue. After catching them on Kobe’s feet on Christmas day (actually matching his opponent’s uniform better than his own as the Lakers play the Bulls), you can catch your own pair tomorrow, December 26th.
