It's no secret that basketball footwear brands love to roll out holiday-themed sneakers this time of year. And it seems like Jordan Brand is always ahead of the pack in terms of holiday spirit year in, year out.
This year, Jumpman has put together an exclusive shoe pack for Christmas Day appropriately named "Flight Before Christmas," which features some of the newest additions to the JB family including the Melo M10, XX8 SE, CP3.VII, and the Super.Fly 2. The design of each shoe is inspired by air travel--something we all tend to do a lot of during the holidays. Each silhouette features flight patters and circular radar imagery, along with bright colors and a pop of reflectivity for some contrast.
The "Flight Before Christmas" pack will be on full display on Christmas Day, with some of the biggest names in the NBA expected to wear their favorite sneakers on the hardwood. OKC's Russell Westbrook will lace up in the XX8 SE for an away game against the New York Knicks. In the same game, the Knicks' Carmelo Anthony will wear his latest signature shoe, the Melo M10. On the west coast, LA Clippers' teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will wear the CP3.VII and Super.Fly 2 respectively.
Prior to Christmas Day, Nike will release limited quantities of the "Flight Before Christmas" pack to the general public. The shoes can be purchased at Nike starting December 24, 2013.
