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.

What do you guys think? Where would you rank these amongst some of the best Nike Basketball “Christmas” releases? Lastly, would you guys like to see Nike releases more collections heading into 2018? Leave all your thoughts in the comments section.
