More Nike Collaborations But This Time It’s Kyrie x SpongeBob

Just when we think that sneakers copping couldn’t get more exciting this summer, Nike decides to release a Kyrie Spongebob collection. The NBA Superstar decided that it’s finally time for the SquarePants to show up on Nike kicks, and it’s not just one among the list of TV-themed collaborations that Kyrie Irving had previously mentioned to Complex. Irving is a big fan and he is not the only one who loves the underwater pineapple house.  We all get that smile going when we look at such a vibrant collection. They’re so cool that none of us would even go: what was he thinking? I mean the way we did with the Dragon Ball Z collaboration.

It’s not a coincidence that Kyrie decided on such a collaboration, and it’s surely not because of inspiration after launching the Lion King. Being a big fan of the series, he decided to design a whole collection in celebration of SpongeBob’s 20th Anniversary. Rumor has it that he quotes word-for-word some of her favorite episodes in the team’s training room. Nike collaborations with Friends show

It’s not the first time he creates a sneaker collection in honor of a TV show he likes. A Kyrie x Nike collaboration previously created a Nike Kyrie 5 featuring the TV show ‘Friends’ for the 15th anniversary of show’s finale. Among other t-shirts and caps in the collection, the kicks retailed at $130 when they dropped on the 16th of May.
