Christmas is routinely the highest-rating regular season play date on the NBA calendar as it features marquee match-ups that everyone wants to see. This year, we saw the Knicks' Carmelo Anthony and the Lakers' Kobe Bryant try to outscore each other in a battle of the two biggest markets in the league; a nail-biter of a Finals rematch between Durant's Thunder and Lebron's Heat; and a bevy of blow-outs courtesy of Boston, Houston, and the Clippers against their victims, Brooklyn, Chicago and Denver, respectively.
For those paying close attention, you may have noticed the vibrant and festive-looking shoes that some of the league's best players were rocking that night. By best players, we mean Lebron, Durant, and Kobe, whose kicks we have also featured in our Sneakers All-Stars article before. Christmas night saw these stars wore Yule-inspired editions of their signature sneakers as part of Nike's "Christmas Pack."
These, we file under "For Serious Shoe Collectors Only." Limited in stock, and worn by the said players only for that night, the demand for these are high, and the prices are sure to skyrocket once they've been plucked off the shelves and onto the pages of Ebay.
Check them out in the gallery below. Nagkakaubusan na po, mga kaibigan!
