Kicks On Court Classic // The Best Christmas Day Sneakers Worn By LeBron James

words // Nick DePaula:

Each winter, the league’s marquee stars take the court for Christmas Day in one of the NBA’s most watched days of the regular season. For several seasons, stars like Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James have been annual fixtures for the holiday matchups, promoting the league in festive specially designed uniforms, and of course, themed edition sneakers.

After appearing only sparingly on Christmas Day during the early half of his career, LeBron and his Nike signature kicks have been a mainstay on December 25th in recent years.

Check out all of the special edition Kicks On Court he’s worn through the years below, and let us know your favorites in the comments section on Twitter.
