Who lives in a pineapple under the sea – Kyrie Irving! The professional basketball player is now launching a SpongeBob SquarePants collection with Nike. There will be a total of 5 different colorways, whose colors and design are adapted from the main characters of the animated series. What do the shoes look like, when do they release and how can you buy them? All these questions are answered in this article.
SpongeBob, Patrick and Tadeus will be featured on a Nike Kyrie 5, whilst Mr. Krabs and Sandy Cheeks will be shown on a Kyrie low 2. All colorways convince especially with the bright colors. When you look at it for the second time, you also notice a lot of small details. The faces of all the characters can be seen on the insoles, Sandy Cheeks shows her hair flower and an acorn, while Mr. Krabs shows both the dollar sign and his nemesis plankton on the shoe. The Kyrie 5 models, however, are a little less playful, but convince solely by the fact that each character can be recognized by their typical colors and outfits. A closer look at the models can be found below in our gallery.
While the Nike x Kyrie Cereal Pack was only available in the US, it can be expected that the SpongeBob collection will also be available in Europe. Currently it looks like the release is scheduled for the 10th of August. Among others, you can try your luck in the official SNEAKRS app. The price for the Kyrie 5 models is 130 euros, whilst the two Kyrie low 2 costs 110 euros each. If you get a shoe and the weather is as humid as in Bikini Bottom – do not forget the Empire Dirt Blocker. 😉
