In the spirit of Christmas 2023, we explore two popular Nike LeBron releases celebrating the festive holiday: the LeBron 8 V/2 and the LeBron 9.

Back in 2010, the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 “Christmas” graced LeBron James’ feet during a Christmas Day clash between the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center. Sporting a holiday-themed design, this mid-top dazzles with a Sport Red upper and vibrant Green laces. A speckled black midsole houses a lightweight Max Air unit for comfy steps.

Fast forward to Christmas Day 2011, where the Nike LeBron 9 “Christmas” made its debut in a Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks game—a rematch of the previous season’s NBA Finals. Showcasing a blend of Spirit Red and Lucky Green, this release marked a milestone as the first Nike shoe to feature Hyperfuse and Flywire. The festive Red and Green combination up top finds support in a midsole equipped with a Max Air unit, while a touch of Reflect Silver on the Swoosh and a silver outsole complete the merry look.

Take a glance at both pairs below and share your opinion on the superior release by casting your vote.
