**POST UPDATED: We will be opening Monday, December 26th at 11 AM!!
HO HO HO! Merrrrrrrrrry Christmas!! What better way to celebrate the holiday cheer than with special edition releases of some of the best bball shoes this season. Even more fitting is that the NBA is finally set to return to action this holiday weekend making this release even more exciting. Anyone have any predictions for this shortened season’s NBA champs?
All 3 shoes are available in limited quantity and will release on Monday, December 26th when we open at 11AM.
Kobe VII’s and Lebron 9′s are both available in kids (gs) sizes.
One of the shoes we have in is the new Kobe VII “Leopard”, the new signature shoe for Kobe Bryant, who should be one of the front runners on the L.A. Lakers to take home the title this season. The violet/volt colorway is reminiscent of the “Joker” release last year, but the red laces and spotty cheetah print on the upper is what sets it apart. The Kobe VII is also advanced in design as it is now modular, coming with two different sockliners for different styles of play on the court.
My (homer) pick for the NBA champion this year is the New York Knicks!! The additions of Mike Bibby, Baron Davis, and my favorite – Tyson Chandler – make this team a force to be reckoned with. Let’s not forget, we get another year of developed chemistry from the team’s two superstars – Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire. “Stat” or Amare, is the guy who started the rebirth of the Knicks and we couldn’t be more excited to bring in his signature shoe, the Air Max Sweep Thru, in a special edition Christmas color (Lucky Green/Sport Red-White). This is the first Air Max Sweep Thru we’ve received and I’m glad to report that it’s extremely comfortable and the colorway is an obvious winner.
Following suit of the Lebron 8, this year’s Lebron 9 also gets decked out in a special edition Christmas color up as he tries to take his Miami Heat back to the NBA finals. The “Christmas” Lebron 9′s feature a reflective swoosh and chunks of the reflectivity meshed through the popping green laces. The icy outsole is also on another level as it literally looks like ice and has been given a sparkle treatment to give it a little more holiday feel.
