Though his name was recently mentioned in a trade discussion or two, power forward Amar'e Stoudemire will return to the New York Knicks' lineup on Christmas Day, when the team opens the regular season against the rival Boston Celtics. Strangely, the Celtics won't be the only team wearing green in the building that day, as the Knicks are expected to suit up in their usual Christmas Day green uniforms as well. To accommodate STAT, Nike has issued him a green-based colorway of his semi-signature Air Max Sweep Thru shoe for the big game.
Tumbled green leather takes care of majority of the upper, while Sport Red and white accent the midfoot cross-straps, Swoosh branding and upper eyelets. White handles the midsole, which houses a red Max Air unit in the heel. A red and white rubber outsole finish off the festive look below.
Priced at $90, Amar'e's Christmas Air Max Sweep Thru will hit NikeStore on Christmas Day and physical retailers like Sneaker Bistro the following day.
Color: Lucky Green/Sport Red-White
