On December 25th this year, which will be Christmas Day, the Oklahoma City Thunder will be action, which obviously means that Kevin Durant will be spending Christmas on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder roster will be going head to head with the formidable Chicago Bulls. While the game itself should be a treat for both fans of the sport and sneakerheads, Nike Basketball is also gearing up to drop a 2015 Christmas Pack on the very next day of Christmas. After the big game on Christmas day, Kevin Durant will also get to witness the Nike sneakers 2015 of the KD 8 “Christmas.”
Nike apparently decided to go with a “Fire and Ice” theme for this year’s “Christmas Pack,” which is quite obvious from the fiery and wintry color schemes that cover each individual model from this collection. Included in this collection is one “Christmas” rendition each of LeBron James’, Kevin Durant’s, Kobe Bryant’s and Kyrie Irving’s latest signature silhouettes. While the collection itself has been officially unveiled, sneakerheads will have to wait a little longer for Nike to share official descriptions that shed light on what inspired each of these four colorways.
As for the Nike KD 8 “Christmas,” it takes on a fiery yet festive look, much like the Kobe 10 Elite that is also included in this collection. The Flyweave upper of each shoe is divided into two portions, apparently reflecting a naughty and nice concept. Half of each shoe is completely White, while the other half sports an abstract, bold Black and Red graphic. Last but not least, apparently representing the lump of coal Santa leaves in the socks of those who have been naughty, the midsole of this sneaker features a crackled, molten coal-like pattern. Moreover, the Nike Swoosh logo and a portion of the sole unit are also adorned with hits of Bright Crimson.
Along with the rest of Nike’s 2015 “Christmas Pack,” the Nike release 2015 of the KD 8 “Christmas will take place on December 26th. The Nike KD 8 “Christmas” is scheduled to retail at a price of $180.
