Yesterday, we witnessed a formal goodbye from one of the greatest athletes to ever bless the hardwood. Kobe Bean Bryant will be remembered for his unrelenting intensity that helped redefine the game of basketball. His remarkable performances landed him countless sponsorships and endorsements, including a lucrative shoe deal with Nike. With Christmas right around the corner, it makes perfect sense for us to highlight some of his greatest Christmas Day footwear moments.

Hopefully glancing at this post made you somewhat nostalgic. We'll never forget those Christmas Day battles against some of the league's greatest players. Christmas Day NBA basketball is one of the greatest stages to display new, holiday-themed kicks. Although Nike has slowed the production of their Holiday sneakers, there are still plenty of dope kicks to be on the lookout for. Whose feet will you be watching next Monday?
