Christmas Day Kicks

Dwyane Wade gives us a glimpse of the AJ 2011 in action.

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

With five games on the schedule on Christmas Day, NBA fans got a little bit of everything. Highlights included the Magic snapping Boston’s 14-game winning streak, the Lakers looking very un-champion like in their loss to the Heat and KD putting on a show for everyone, carving up the Nuggets for 44 points in an OKC win.

The highlights were non-stop in terms of footwear. Green socks, red sneaks and green Knicks jerseys were among my favorites. The biggest attention grabber of the day was what Dwyane Wade had on his feet. Wade debuted the Air Jordan 2011 in the first half against the Lakers, before slipping back into the AJ 2010 in the second half.

In the flood of pictures that follows, I’ve probably got some of your favorites, too. For more detailed looks at what Kobe, KD and LeBron were wearing, check out the post we ran earlier this week. Also take a look at the shoes I previewed last week to see what Kevin Garnett was wearing yesterday and what Baron Davis could be wearing today against the Suns.

Pics below are courtesy of CounterKicks, who had an in-depth look at what was worn in all five games yesterday.

    So Wade was wearing two different shoes in the same game, huh? I heard sometimes he sweats so much he has to change a pair during halftime.

    Need help. What was Korver wearing against the Knicks?

  • Mike from Spain

    @hoodsnake, yes, they are different from regular Hyperdunks, they have full length Air Max and a strap

    That’s a ton of ugly kicks for one day.

    I’m surprised at the number of players wearing PEAK kicks today. More than you’d think.

  • don

    no mention of the adidas shoes eh?

    @don I wasn’t overly impressed by anything I saw. Derrick Rose wore a colorway of his shoe that we’d already seen (I love the adiZero Rose as a shoe though). Dwight’s Beasts were blue and from there I saw a lot of Pro Models that didn’t really do anything for me. Did I miss anything? I watched the first three games on Christmas Day and looked over pics online for the rest of it.
