When you can shop the re-release of Nike’s LeBron 7 Retro Christmas sneakers
Christmas is coming early this year with a new drop of this classic basketball sneaker.
Following the re-release of the old school Red Carpet sneakers back in October, Nike is now set to drop another retro model in time for the Christmas season. This time, the brand will be putting the LeBron 7 Retro Christmas sneakers back up for sale – the very pair that LeBron wore during a 2009 Christmas Day game.
Re-release date: 19 December (US)
Where to buy: Nike
The design sees a festive red colourway on the leather overlays, which gradients into black towards the collar. Visible red Flywire is meanwhile woven through the upper to add a textured element to the silhouette.
Black lace guards and laces, a metallic silver Swoosh outlined in black on the medial side and a smaller Swoosh on the overlays add further eye-catching elements. Jewelled badges and LeBron's signature L23 logo on the medial side of the heel further round out the design.
The re-release of the sneakers is scheduled for 19 December in the US, meaning that we should be seeing them hit Aussie shores shortly after. When they do drop, we can expect to see them first both in-store and online at Nike. We're also likely to see them appear in usual stockists like Foot Locker and JD Sports.
As an iconic re-release, we imagine that the kicks will be highly coveted, so we recommend grabbing a pair the second they land if you don't want to risk missing out.
In other Nike news, the label has just released a first look at a limited edition pair of sneakers to ring in the Chinese New Year. Taking on the Air Max 1 silhouette, the mythical kicks feature a mixed black and pink upper with Chinese symbols spelling out "Nike" on the tongue tab and a winged golden horse on the heel.
