Nike Unveils Christmas Day Sneakers For Kobe Bryant

Christmas is less than a week away and one of the NBA’s biggest days is just around the corner.

On this holiday, the NBA dominates air time and there are games from the time you open your presents to when you sit down with family for dinner. Like always, the Los Angeles Lakers will play on Christmas Day, and this year they will host one of the best teams in the NBA, the New York Knicks.

Kobe Bryant has always worn unique sneakers on this festive holiday and this season will be no different. Nike has released the Kobe 8 designs that Bryant will be wearing when the Lakers play the Knicks on Christmas.

Check out our interview with Kobe about the VIII’s at his event from Venice Beach:

In keeping with the snake-inspired design of Kobe Bryant’s latest signature shoe, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM draws inspiration from the rhinoceros viper. The perfect snake skin for a holiday colorway, its bright red and yellow scales mimic a Christmas tree garland — but don’t get too close. Built for Bryant’s speed and precision, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM features a Nike Engineered Mesh upper, Lunarlon midsole and tactile traction.
