Nike Vault strikes again. Prior to Wednesday's official "Christmas" Kobe 8 System launch, Nike Basketball's Staples Center location will be dropping a limited edition "Christmas Day Pack" before the Knicks and Lakers tip off on Tuesday.

Priced at $174, the pack includes Kobe's Christmas Day game shoe and a matching pair of custom Elite socks.

Packs will be released at 9:00 a.m. PST on a first come, first serve basis. The line for the release will start on the Southeast corner of 11th Street and Figueroa across from the Nike Vault.
