How will Kevin Durant's latest Nike signature shoe celebrate Christmas? Arriving mid-December is a "The Sauce" Nike KD 9 colorway, which was officially unveiled by Nike on Wednesday via its 12 Soles collection.

There's not much explanation about the colorway—Nike gives the nickname and mentions nothing beyond that—but more of the story is sure to come as the model's release draws closer.

Watch for "The Sauce" Nike KD 9s to release on Dec. 15.

Other Christmastime releases from Nike Basketball include a "Ghost of Christmas Past" Kobe and "What The?" Kyrie 2s.
