In what has become a favorite holiday tradition for sneakerheads, Nike unveiled the colorways for the shoes that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant will be wearing on Christmas Day.

There’s a story behind the choices for each. From the official release:

KOBE 8 SYSTEM

“In keeping with the snake-inspired design of Kobe Bryant’s latest signature shoe, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM draws inspiration from the rhinoceros viper. The perfect snake skin for a holiday colorway, its bright red and yellow scales mimic a Christmas tree garland – but don’t get too close.”

LEBRON X

“Furthering the diamond inspiration of the LEBRON X, the design team unearths the rarest of diamond colors, red, to serve as the creative muse for this colorway. Highlighted by a sun-washed green, the shoe also features a metallic-like reflection on the vibrant red upper.”

“As a kid, Kevin Durant recalls getting a video game system one Christmas. Inspired by video game graphics, Nike designers created the upper design, sockliner graphic and tongue tab logo for Durant’s special Christmas Day shoe.”
