This Christmas, Santa will deliver one of the most anticipated NBA matchups of the season: the Miami Heat taking on the reigning champs, LA Lakers. To celebrate the holiday season, Miami Heat star LeBron James will unveil a new sneaker.

Eastbay reports, "This year, the chosen shoe is the LeBron VIII V2, a lighter variation of his most recently released signature shoe. Switching things up a little from past designs, this particular shoe will feature a heavy Christmas motif, and you'll be able to pick up your very own pair in December.

"The 'Christmas' LeBron VIII sports a varsity red synthetic upper, with Flywire-embedded mesh overlying a heavily perforated base. Offering lockdown support are tonal Flywire panels on the sides of the shoe. Black works the inner liner, as well of the border of the Swoosh, which is filled in with white. Green is used for the provided lace set, while a white snow-flurry speckled pattern is applied to a black backdrop on the midsole and heel. Below, a black colored 360-Air unit sits above a white red rubber outsole."

The Nike Air Max LeBron VIII V2 will be available at on Dec. 26.
