Nike does not make things easy for us on Christmas. In the past XMAS themed kicks dropped on the actual Christmas Day, which means that you could not get these in time. Now it’s one day after, which makes you wonder what’s the point, right?!? Europe LeBron fans have it even worse. After nearly a 3 weeks delay Nike Basketball retailers are finally releasing the Nike LeBron XI in Green Glow, Light Crimson and Arctic Green. It’s still a great looking shoe, but I still think Nike should re-schedule their launch calendar in order for us to wear our favorite Xmas when unpacking other presents or have a chance of finding these under the Christmas tree. I guess, LeBron James won’t mind us getting them early… we get the first colorways in October before he does and currently he’s not wearing any LeBron 11’s anyway.

LeBron James wore the special Xmas edition Nike LeBron 11 shoes on Christmas Day. Other players brought some heat as well including two Nike Soldier 7 sightings by Norris Cole of the Miami Heat and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. Cole wore pretty much a copy and paste version from the LeBron 11, but Green showcased a predominantly white “Snowman” colorway. It reminds me of the “Cookie” Soldier 6 that was unveiled on Christmas Day last year. Nice touch, Nike!

The Miami Heat defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 101-95 on Christmas Day at the Staples Center. The win is the Heat’s fifth straight over the Lakers on Christmas Day games. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for a couple of highlight plays including this epic off the glass alley oop. Just as expected, King James wore the Christmas colorway of the Nike LeBron XI… for the whole game. He did wear the redefined version, though. The shoes will be available in a little over 3 hours at major Nike Basketball retailers including online nikestore.com (Twitter Link Only) and eastbay.com (Web Only). More pics from last night’s game after the break.

The tradition of creating special Christmas colorways is quite young considering Nike’s ability to create personalized kicks. For the LeBron line it started along with the LEBRON VII. Nowadays the expansion is quite obvious and even the Soldier line was included last year. Unlike the LEBRON X, which ended up at retail as usual, the SOLDIER VI Christmas PE was created exclusively for NBA players and was showcased on NBA courts thanks to Kosta Koufus and Eric Bledsoe. Should we expect some special SOLDIER VII wears on Christmas Day? Take a closer look at the last year’s edition and stay tuned for updates.

The Christmas colorways of Nike Basketball signature shoes are an annual tradition. This year, three wintertime stories are linked by special logo lacelocks that connect to create custom signature ornaments. LeBron James brings the Xmas spirit to the beach with this special edition of the LEBRON 11. A chilly mint color takes on a Christmas green with bold red accents and a frosty translucent outsole. The unique geometry of a snowflake combines with the royal palm to create a kaleidoscopic “palmsicle” print. The Christmas colorways will be available at select retail stores and nike.com on December 26th, 2013.

The Nike LeBron XI dressed in Xmas themed graphics and classic Xmas colors… this time in reverse… is scheduled to be released on December 26th, 2013 for $200. It’s a nice change of pace from the classic candy red colorways. Hopefully LeBron James won’t ditch these when the Miami Heat visit the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day. Check out a couple of new angles below.

Below you see LeBron James modeling the special sleeved jersey he and the rest of the Miami Heat will wear on Christmas Day as part of the NBA’s annual Xmas mega-holiday hoopstravaganza. Every player on each of the 10 teams participating in the Dec. 25 quintuple-header will be rocking the sleeves-and-big-logo look. NBA cooked up a new holiday-themed commercial “Jingle Hoops” featuring D-Rose, KD, Steph Curry, Harden, Steve Nash and King James, of course.
