It’s the most wonderful time of the year according to the song and if you’re a basketball fan then it looks like Nike agree as they drop 4 very special festive signature editions from Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.

The 2015 Nike Basketball Christmas Collection, split between fire and ice inspirations, features the KOBE X, KD8, KYRIE 2 and LEBRON 13.

In an chilly nod to the harsh Winters in the Midwest of the States the LeBron 13 “Christmas” features icy blue hues throughout along with Christmas details on the lace lock, pearlescent blue Hyperposite technology and shattered ice-inspired “13” on the heel.

Carrying on the icy connection the Kyrie 2 “Christmas” pays homage to the age-old myth of the abominable snowman with an icy blue colourway, a tooth-like graphic on the strap and what else but a transparent ice outsole.

In a reflection of Kevin Durant’s persona of being one of a nicest dudes off the court and a mean one on it, Nike presents the KD 8 in “naughty and nice” fashion by way of alternating colour blocking. The lateral side is white, contrasted by a red and black graphic on the Flyweave upper. The midsole wraps into the heel counter in a texture inspired by a crackled pattern representing hot coal.
