Nike Lebron X - Christmas

Nike Lebron X - Christmas

The Nike Kobe 8 System & KD V, along with the Nightmare Before Christmas Adidas Top Ten 2000 & Rose 3 are the Christmas Specials we have covered so far.  Creative themes related to both Christmas and the nature of the shoe/player (namely the signature Nike shoes) were executed flawlessly for some of the best release in recent years.  To close out our look of the Christmas Day shoes of 2012, we good back to the basics.  No hidden themes or flash color schemes make up these final two shoes, just the Red and Green synonymous with the holiday.  Closing out our Christmas Spotlight Specials are the Nike Lebron X and the Under Armour Micro G® Charge BB.

Nike Lebron X - Christmas

This Lebron X represents the Red diamond

Lebron James and the Miami Heat welcomed the Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Christmas Day.  The Finals 2012 rematch would see the Heat beating the Thunder in a highly competitive game.  With so many color schemes released every year, the Lebron series is always a treat for the fans.  This year, the tenth anniversary shoe comes at a perfect time – right after Lebron captured his first NBA Championship.  The theme for all color schemes of the X is diamonds.  A tradition created with the 8 V2, the Christmas version of the X comes in all red, representing the rare colored diamond.

Just like the Lebron X, the Under Armour Micro G® Charge BB stays festive with a red based upper.  The red covers the entire upper, as well as pods on the heel.  Bright green is the first accent color that jumps out, marking the Under Armour logos, midsole, lining, laces, and the forefoot section of the outsole.  The final touches of this radiant Christmas Day shoe come with gold – covering the top of the midsole, midfoot stability plate, and engulfing the back heel flap.

Red, green, and gold team up for a very festive look

No two shoes released on Christmas Day scream the holidays like the Nike Lebron X and Under Armour Micro G® Charge BB.  Although only the Lebron X made it to the court, the Charge BB was a perfect offering from Under Armour.  Both the Nike Lebron X and Under Armour Micro G® Charge BB were released in limited quantities on Christmas Day.  This concludes our look back at Christmas Day 2012.  A wide variety of themes and color schemes were played out making 2012 one of the best years for Christmas Day releases.
