In LeBron James’ tenure as an NBA superstar, Christmas has served as a moment for James to shine. Having played on the holiday each year since 2007, his gift to fans has been a tenacious holiday performance, squaring up against some of the league’s top talent while winning 60% of his total December 25 contests. This year, James and the Los Angeles Lakers are set for a rematch with the Dallas Mavericks, who they defeated in a statement win on Christmas Day in 2020. However, the court isn’t the only place that King James celebrates. Special “Christmas” colorways of his signatures shoes with Nike often hit shelves for the festive season.
For this year, the duo’s latest creation, the Nike LeBron 20, sees itself in a holiday look. Operating with a “Green Apple” base at its knit upper, red stitching weaves throughout to create a classic green and red combination. A Christmas-themed graphic featuring mistletoe spreads throughout the tongue, heel tab, red Swooshes and sole unit. Additional detailing includes green and red semi-reflective lace options, clear lace locks, red “XX” dubrae and a sockliner with co-branded graphics. Lastly, a white midsole is supported by an icy translucent outsole to complete the look.
Release for the Nike LeBron 20 “Christmas” is expected to take place in celebration of the holiday on December 25. Look for it to land on shelves via Nike at a price of $200 USD.
