The world’s two best basketball players not only continue to revolutionize the way the game is played on the court, but their style of play and insights have led to the creation of two of Nike best basketball shoes of all time – the Zoom Kobe V and the Air Max LeBron VII.

By working extensively together, Nike and Kobe pushes the envelope even further with the introduction of Nike lightest weight and lowest profile basketball shoe to date – the Kobe V. Kobe’s latest signature sneaker weighs just 10.6 ounces and takes its inspiration from an unexpected place – the soccer field.

LeBron and Nike introduced the Air Max LeBron VII this fall, a shoe that features Nike’s first basketball-specific Nike Max 360 air sole. The LeBron VII was designed to deliver maximum comfort and stability for James as the demands of his game evolve and increases.

For Christmas Day, both Kobe and LeBron will be wearing special editions of their respective sneakers, that we can present you for the first time here today. The two sneakers will also be released to the public, as of December 26th.

More detailed images of both sneakers follow after the jump.
