Nike Basketball’s signature athletes Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James are celebrating Christmas by releasing festive kicks to tell their individual stories. The Kobe 9 highlights its knitted aesthetic with a red and white Flyknit upper, taking inspiration from a knit stocking. Leather textures on the tongue and overlays give the shoe a premium feel, while its marbled outsole resembles candy canes. The KD7 pays tribute to his favorite holiday beverage, eggnog. A red Hyperposite heel integrates glossy flecks emulating the condensation on a glass of eggnog. Last but not least, the LeBron 12 combines the shoe’s photorealistic camouflage upper on the Hyperposite shell. The camo pattern is inspired by Akron, Ohio’s winter weather and includes a birch tree pattern. Black and Hyperpunch micro dots integrate into the camo pattern for a seasonal touch.

LeBron 12 “Akron Birch”
The LeBron 12 was developed to meet James’s performance needs based on research from the Nike Sport Research Lab. Nike Zoom Air technology is brought to a new level on this shoe. The emerald green base combines with the shoe’s photorealistic camouflage upper on the Hyperposite shell. The camo pattern is inspired by Akron, Ohio’s winter weather and includes a birch tree pattern. Black and Hyperpunch micro dots integrate into the camo pattern for a seasonal touch. A notable subtlety of this shoe is the snowflake formed by small hexagons on the tongue loop.
KD 7 “Egg Nog”
Driven by a design philosophy to stay light and locked down during sharp cuts, the KD 7 features dynamic Flywire technology, Hyperposite construction and Zoom Air cushioning. The shoe continues to bring Durant’s personal stories to life – this time paying tribute to his favorite holiday beverage, egg nog. A red Hyperposite heel integrates glossy flecks emulating the condensation on a glass of egg nog. “Fresh Since ’88,” Durant’s birth year, emblazons the shoe’s sock liner as a tribute to the holiday beverage Durant has enjoyed since childhood.
Kobe 9 Elite “Knit Stocking”
The Kobe 9 gets a festive makeover highlighting its knitted aesthetic with a red and white Flyknit upper, taking inspiration from a knit stocking. Supple leather textures on the tongue and overlays give the shoe a premium feel, accented by a marbled outsole resembling candy canes. Inside, the shoe reads “Mamba’s Greetings,” a hidden detail from Bryant on the inner tongue.
As the presenting sponsor of Power 106’s Cali Christmas concert for the second year in a row, Footaction made sure that we were there to capture everything in style. With a performance line-up including some of the biggest hip-hop acts like Big Sean, J. Cole, T.I., G-Eazy, Tinashe, Lil’ Jon, Chris Brown, Jeremih and Kid Ink, guest appearances were also made by Ty Dolla Sign, French Montana, Tyga and E-40 during the partyful night.
However, it didn’t stop at throwing the West Coast’s biggest hip-hop concert. Footaction invited select top-tier influencers and media from across the nation to get an inside look at how style played a role in the event. We provided an inside look at the latest fashion trends during a personalized styling session, gave the influencers VIP treatment at the concert, in addition to hosting a private dinner for three buzzing artists: G-Eazy, Casey Veggies and Hit-Boy.
Cali Christmas also served as the backdrop for the third and final installment of our Style Means series. This time around, we highlighted G-Eazy who is an up-and-coming rapper and is known for his clean and classic style earning him the title “the James Dean of Hip-Hop.”
While the concert continued to bring the energy all night, backstage had its own type of energy. Our team was stationed in the media room with Power 106’s Mando Fresko who interviewed several acts and celebrities who stopped through to the event, while asking questions about their style and of course what they wanted for Christmas.
Check out the recap video and pictures from the event up above.
