With Christmas just 45 days away, brands are starting to roll out their holiday edition sneakers. A day after we saw Under Armour's Yuletide ClutchFit Drive, we are getting a look at the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Christmas."

Unlike the ClutchFit Drive which uses pastel-leaning shades, the Kobe 9 Elite opts for a more traditional palette of Christmas colors with a red and white Flyknit upper highlighted by hits of green throughout the shoe. Despite the Lakers early season woes, Los Angeles is scheduled to travel to Chicago on Christmas Day to take on the Bulls, meaning it's pretty safe to say that we will be seeing these on the feet of Mamba on December 25.

Check out the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Christmas" below and keep it with Sneaker Report for details regarding a release date.
