Not only is Christmas Day bringing the first matchup of the season between the Heat and Lakers, it’s also delivering a clash of special shoes. Kevin Durant is wearing special shoes for his game against the Nuggets, and of course the two biggest superstars in the league — Kobe Bryant and LeBron James — each have their new Nikes. Kobe’s Christmas shoes are the grinch-colored ones on the left while LeBron’s are the Heat-colored kicks on the right:
The shoes will be available on December 26th — LeBron’s shoes will cost $160 while Kobe’s retail for $130. If you’re lucky enough, you might just receive a pair as a late Christmas present. Here are a few more pics in case you want to see all the details, including the lion on the tongue of LeBron’s, representing his nickname of “The King.”
That lime green color doesn’t do it for me, but then again I’m not the type to spend $130 on some wingtips. I suppose for the crowd dishing out those ducats, the more outrageous the better.
