Well you know it’s the Christmas season when you start hearing those songs about snowmen, reindeer, and some fat guy in a red jumpsuit. But if you’re a sneaker fan, you know it’s that time of the season when Christmas Edition kicks start to roll out.
1. Lebron XI “Christmas”
For this year, Nike makes the biggest earliest season splash by sharing photos of Lebron James’ 11th signature shoe.
Using about the same colors as the Lebron X “Christmas” pair had, this year’s Lebron XI version adds more flare with snowflake accents and a mainly mint green body.
Nike tied up this package with red laces and marked it with the red Nike Swoosh.
2. Li- Ning Way of Wade 2 “Christmas”
Not wanting to miss out on the early Christmas hype, Li- Ning’s released images of LBJ teammate Dwyane Wade’s own signature paid.
On the first impression, this pair from the Chinese brand actually looks like having the middle of an Air Jordan III and the sole of Crazy Lights while dressed in what seems to be a frogskin pattern.
3. Reebok “Ghosts of Christmas” trio
Now Reebok may be kept on the sidelines thanks to Nike and Adidas’ aggressive pursuance of big name endorsers but it doesn’t mean they didn’t have any (big name endorsers)
First to hit the shelves will be Shawn Kemp’s Kamikaze 2 to be released as the ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’ on Dec. 6. This is bound to be the cheapest of the three with a price tag of $100.
It also has the simplest appearance with its red zigzag pattern, mainly steel grey upper and a chilly blue outsoul.
Up next would be the most expensive installation, the ‘Ghost of Christmas Present’ Shaq Attaq selling at $160. This pair debuts a week after Kemp’s pair does.
It has the brightest colors in the bunch featuring lime green, forest green and regular green hues accented with a red inner tongue and white laces.
Finally, recently retired Allen Iverson’s ‘Ghost of Christmas Future’ Question hits retailers n Dec. 23 with a price tag of $125.
This pair is given the royal treatment with hues of violet, red linings, white laces and a chilly blue outsole.
Don’t expect these releases to be the last, though. Of course, you wouldn’t right? For sure Nike and Adidas have their Christmas tricks up their sleeves. And Reebok just might still be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat.
