‘Tis the season! And not only that. It’s the tenth anniversary of one of the more popular of the King’s signature basketball shoes, the iconic Nike Air LeBron VII, getting decked out in a festive holiday colorway. On Christmas Day 2009, the eventual MVP of the 2009/10 NBA season (LeBron James) squared off against the eventual league champion (Kobe Bryant’s L.A. Lakers) in the characteristic black and burgundy colorway.
LeBron not only dropped a casual 26 and 9 in a convincing win for his Cavs, but he also debuted a special Christmas edition of his seventh signature shoe on one of the NBA’s biggest stages. After a ten-year hiatus, Nike’s X-Mas LeBron VII returns for the first time as a retro. Available from the BSTN online shop starting on Thursday, December 19th.
