The three sneakers look to different holiday sneakers for their inspiration. The LeBron 12 has a realistic photo print on the upper and is inspired by the birch trees and white winters of his native Akron. The KD 7 has an eggnog flavor to it, complete with glossy flecks on the Hyperposite heel piece meant to represent the condensation on a cool glass of that holiday beverage. Finally, the Kobe 9 has a traditional red and white holiday palette colored like a Christmas stocking or a candy cane. Christmas will also be celebrated on-court when these three athletes wear the Nike Basketball "Christmas Collection" pairs for those festive games.
Matching apparel will be released alongside each shoe, which includes: a hat, tee and elite ink sock. Each piece celebrates the holidays with a trademark graphic featured to tie theme in. An additional shirt for James Harden will also be available. The hats and t-shirts will retail for $35 each while the elite socks are set at, $30 each.
