To most, the day after Christmas is the true holiday. Every year Nike Basketball releases the sneakers the players of the NBA sport on Christmas Day and this year did not disappoint.

The LeBron 11KD 6, and Kobe 8 SS will each be releasing on December 26th in unique colorways. Photos of the Lebron 12 “Akron Birch”, Kobe 9 Elite “Knit Stocking” and the KD 7 “Egg Nog” have surfaced and have the sneaker community in an uproar! Which will you be copping this year or are you on the hunt for all of them? Let us know! Tag @therougecollection and @mykicksthepassion and let’s us know what you pick up this holiday season!

The Christmas colorways of Nike Basketball signature shoes are an annual tradition. Bold designs, material executions and seasonal concepts cut through the cold weather as the LEBRON 11, KOBE 8 SYSTEM and KD VI deliver a gift to the courts. This year, three wintertime stories are linked by special logo lacelocks that connect to create custom signature ornaments.


Snow on the leaves? Never in Miami, but this year LeBron James brings the spirit of the season to the beach with this special edition of the LEBRON 11. A chilly mint color takes on a Christmas green with bold red accents and a frosty translucent outsole. The unique geometry of a snowflake combines with the royal palm to create a kaleidoscopic ‘palmsicle” print.


Ready to strike at any moment, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM sheds its skin to prepare for the coming of the KOBE 9 Elite in February 2014. The essence of the shedding skin is exemplified in a bold modern interpretation of aggressive snake scales attached to a translucent mesh shroud. Hits of neon mamba green and chrome gold bring in the holiday season.


Kevin Durant takes the court in Christmas red with accents of gold and mint. With a twist on traditional Christmas prints, the KD VI features a Fair Isle style Christmas sweater pattern that incorporates trees, stripes, and his number 35. Christmas plaid adorns the collar lining, with decorative detail worked into the metallic red Nike Flywire technology upper and a mint green speckled sole. It’s the perfect outfit for this year’s festivities.
