The days when Nike Basketball would release special edition “Christmas” Collections looks to be behind us. But looking back, some of the best Christmas-inspired colorways to release seemed to always land on Kobe Bryant’s signature line.
While many would agree that the Nike Kobe 6 Grinch is one of the best Christmas releases of all-time. Some could argue that the Nike Kobe 8 Christmas could easily be the second best colorway battling the Nike LeBron 8 V2 Christmas.
Debuted on December 26th, 2012. This Nike Kobe 8 featured a multicolored graphic upper as a nod to Christmas lighting, atop a Red speckled midsole and translucent Green outsole.
