And guess what? All your beloved characters including SpongeBob, Mr. Eugene Krabs, Squidward Tentacles, Patrick Star, and Sandy Cheeks will be included in this new collaboration. Kyrie Irving has been a massive fan of 90s Spongebob Squarepants cartoon show.
So he convinced Nike to collaborate with Nickelodeon, and launch a sneakers collection inspired by the natives of Bikini Bottom. The new shoe collection will be released in five colorways, and each of them will pay homage to the cartoon’s popular characters. So let’s check out the five new variations below!
1. SpongeBob SquarePants
Every 90s kid is aware of SpongeBob, and how he looks like! It is very difficult to find yellow sneakers inspired by the character, but Nike somehow pulled it off! These pairs are kept simple and do not have any minor details like others. You will find dark brown pores, the squiggly swoosh, and the fry cook hat inside the tongue.
Here comes our favorite Patrick Star shoes, and they are perfect! The yellow-green base is completing the look. The light pink bubbles and light pink swoosh is giving a great look to the pairs.
These pairs have the cleanest design of all with a pink flower on the outer panel. Other details which scream Sandy are the acorn on the back and the white color of the shoes. These shoes are extremely good, and anybody can pull it off!
4. Mr. Eugene Krabs
The new Mr. Krabs inspired shoes are really awesome! The gold swoosh and the deep red color along with blue and green accents is giving it a bold look. We all know that Mr. Krabs loves money so dollars are printed on the top of the sneakers. Moreover, we can also see Plankton splashed all over the inner panel. Seems like he is still finding the secret recipe of Krabby Patty!
Have you ever noticed anything that balances the shade of purple and blue? Well, these new pairs have succeeded in it! Squidward is a bitter character who hates the duo SpongeBob and Patrick.
However, if he sees these sneakers, he will surely whine about it, and point out its mistakes! Because that’s what he does! But overall, the shoes are fantastic.
However, the company announced the Nike Kyrie x SpongeBob SquarePants shoes’ release date as 10th August. So to grab one now visit the Nike Store as soon as possible.
