Nike always celebrates Christmas in style, and in case you had your doubts, just check out the Kobe 9 Elite the Black Mamba will lace up when the Lakers face off against the Bulls Christmas day.
We first saw the shoes a festive Kobe 9 Elite a few weeks back, and a few thoughts immediately came to mind. Nike switched it up for Kobe this holiday season as they went with an all-red look instead of the "Grinch" theme from years past. The fully red Flyknit upper with black reflective material accenting the shoe gives us a look that has yet to grace any of the Kobe 9 models. Another major standout is the special camo looking graphic through the midsole and outsole which gives an even more unique look.
Check out the full images of the Kobe 9 Elite "Christmas" below, and keep it locked for an official release date on the Nike Basketball 2014 Christmas Collection.
