Christmas Day NBA games are fun for the matchups the league office creates, but it’s also a time to celebrate players and their fire sneaker collections. Some players will work with brands to create custom-made player edition (PE) kicks for the holiday season. Others pull out the most fire pair of kicks already in their closet.

Either way, Dec. 25 is a day where some of the most jaw-dropping pairs of sneakers hit the basketball spotlight. And we’ve been rounding up the best kicks we’ve seen today.

We’ve also categorized the Christmas Kicks by super fire, kind of fire, and not-so fire, but it’s Christmas so we’ll allow it.

Merry Kicksmas!
