Terry gets points for managing to be both traditional and creative at the same time. We dig the candy-cane socks look, and they flow perfectly into Terry's kicks. The only way this could have been better is with a little Christmas color -- but we get that Terry was just representing his squad.

2014: Iman Shumpert, New York Knicks
One glace at Shumpert's shoes is enough to get you in the holiday spirit. The red, green and gold make it look like his feet are wrapped with care in hopes that victories soon will be there for the Knicks. Unfortunately, New York fell to the Wizards.

2012: Lamar Odom, Los Angeles Clippers
Odom's sneakers were clean, but in all honesty, this inclusion is more about the tributes on Odom's shoes to his late son and grandmother. Here's hoping Odom continues his current recovery.
2014: Matt Bonner, San Antonio Spurs
These are festive, they're fun and they're unlike anything we've ever seen. Bonner's kicks might not be for everyone. For us, though? We'd rock them any time of the year.

2010: Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
As evidenced by this list, most of our favorite Christmas kicks have been worn over the past three years. Go back just a little further and you get this beauty from Bryant. The 'Grinch' colorway of his sixth signature Nike sneaker was too perfect. Is there any other character from Christmas stories that you'd associate more with Bryant than the Grinch?

2013: Jamal Crawford, Los Angeles Clippers
When silver bells give way to silver shoes, it's a very Crawford Christmas. The season is all about giving, of course. But it's also a little bit about that bling, as the Clippers guard reminded us.

2013: DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles Clippers
This shoe breaks both of our 'Christmas shoe' rules. It's not holiday-themed, and it's not particularly creative. But that Jordan XI is such a gorgeous shoe that we couldn't leave it off this list.

2013: LeBron James, Miami Heat
This isn't the traditional green paired with red on LeBron's kicks, which made for a bold risk. But the mint green does a fantastic job of evoking the season, and the whole package comes together perfectly.

2014: Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors
Combine a clean look with a clear nod to the winter season? That's a winner. And Thompson wasn't the only Warrior rocking Frosty on Christmas last year. Draymond Green got in on the act, too. There must not have been some magic in those kicks, though, as the Clippers beat the Warriors 100-86. Yes, Virginia, there was a time when Golden State losing was a somewhat regular occurrence.

2014: Jordan Hill, Los Angeles Lakers
Hill might seem like an odd choice, unless you recognize those kicks. They are in fact the Christmas version of Nike's Kobe Bryant 9, and they are absolutely gorgeous. The colorway is inspired by the stockings of the season, and the sole gives a little bit of a candy-cane flavor, too. For now, these are our favorite Christmas kicks -- but the 2015 shoes are pretty amazing. We'll have to see which pair tops this list next year.
