The only thing more festive than unwrapping presents and having a turkey dinner on Christmas Day is cracking back a cold one with your folks and watching a full slate of NBA games all day. This year featured five different games, with marquee matches such as defending NBA Champions Golden State Warriors facing off against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was also the last night Christmas Day that Kobe Bryant would ever play on.
For sneaker fans, there was also plenty on display, too, with brands such as Nike, adidas, and Under Armour lacing their signature athletes —such as LeBron James, James Harden, and Stephen Curry—with Player Edition sneakers for the day. There were also a few unexpected sneaker champions of the day, with lesser-name players taking shoes from their personal stashes to make an impact on the court.
To see the best of the best, here are The Best Sneakers Worn in the NBA on Christmas Day.
