Hit or Miss: Nike Basketball Christmas

December 26, 2012 | 5

When it comes to celebrating Christmas, Nike Basketball has been the front-runner for themed releases for the past few years. The supposed “Big 3″ of Nike Basketball, the KD V, Kobe 8 and LeBron X, have just hit stores sporting their Christmas designs.

Officially known as the “Holiday Collection,” each sneaker represents something different, the LeBron X resembles the rare red diamond, the Kobe 8 grabs inspiration from the rhinoceros viper and the KD V is a reminder of Kevin Durant’s love of video games.

The released happened earlier this morning, (and in some areas, yesterday), but the question is, did you get a pair?

    Kobe – Hit, just half size but they fit ok.
    Brons – Hit last pair.
    KD – Layaway, because the X “Prism” are priority in my LIFE!!!

    Honestly had no idea they were dropping, probably would have stayed in Houston another day for the Kobe’s. The KD’s are nice but that LeBron X (I just earled all over the keyboard, they are just as ugly as every other colorway I have seen minus the corks)
