Better Release: Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch” or Nike LeBron 8 V2 “Christmas”

During Christmas 2010, Nike Basketball released arguably their two best holiday-themed releases with the Kobe 6 and LeBron 8 V2.

The Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch” features a Lime Green colorway recalling Dr. Suess’ infamous holiday grouch, the Grinch. However, the shoe itself was actually inspired by the Green Mamba, a colorful take on Kobe Bryant’s Black Mamba nickname. It features a snakeskin-textured upper to further play to that inspiration, while having Varsity Red contrasting accents to give off Christmas vibes. During Christmas 2022, Nike would update the beloved colorway by releasing a Kobe 6 Protro version.

LeBron James debuted the Nike LeBron 8 V2 “Christmas” on Christmas Day 2010, when the Miami Heat played against the Los Angeles Lakers. The shoe features a Sport Red upper with Flywire cables along the side panels for added support. Additional details includes Victory Green laces, an oversized tongue, White Swooshes atop a Black and White speckled midsole equipped with a full-length visible Air unit.
