Not only does this Christmas mark the long-awaited return of the NBA, it'll also be the debut of Nike Basketball's Christmas-inspired collection of kicks. Treated to a Christmas colorway for the second consecutive season, Kevin Durant will get the 2011 campaign underway in this copper-covered edition of the Zoom KD IV.

A gleaming copper covers the entire upper of the Zoom KD IV, while black handles the Swoosh, tongue, laces and midsole down below. Red laces will also be included, completing the holiday inspiration.

Look for KD to hit the court in these on Christmas day and pick them up at select Nike Basketball retailers December 26th.
