Calling all sneakerheads! Nike has debuted the new “Easter Edition” sneakers for the top three basketball players in the world! We all know Nike is big on capitalizing on some of the best players in game by signing them to major endorsement deals.
This week, the apparel company unveiled Easter-themed sneaker designs for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. The pastel-heavy designs, which will be available on Mar. 29, “drew on the tradition of painting, dying and decorating Easter eggs,” according to a company release. The Easter sneakers follow up previous special editions for Christmas Day and the 2013 All-Star Game.
Peep the individual pics of the sneakers and their descriptions below from NIKE.COM:
The LEBRON X LOW, LeBron James’s new low-cut signature shoe, continues the celebration of his 10-year partnership with Nike Basketball. The low version debuts in this special colorway, with mint as the base color of the shoe and a graphic collar-lining in Easter-egg hues. The LEBRON X LOW features a basketball-specific Max Air 360 unit that provides maximum impact protection and a smooth ride. Hyperfuse construction with Flywire technology delivers dynamic containment for optimal performance. The low-cut upper offers lightweight comfort and free range of motion.
The vivid color-blocking of the KOBE 8 SYSTEM overlays egg-painting technique on Kobe’s signature snakeskin pattern throughout the upper. Innovative Nike Engineered Mesh enables incredible use of color, which is fully leveraged in this edition. Designed as an extension of Kobe’s foot for his quickness and precision, the KOBE 8 SYSTEM incorporates Nike Engineered Mesh for the first time in a basketball shoe. This upper construction provides a dynamic, ultra-lightweight fit while acting as a canvas for provocative graphic design.
The KD V features soft blue-green tones and playful paint patterns on the Swoosh, tongue and visible Max Air unit in the heel. The KD V, Kevin Durant’s most technically advanced shoe to date, combines Nike Zoom cushioning in the forefoot and Nike Air in the heel, along with a Hyperfuse upper and dynamic heel support.
So there you have it! The shoes are not very appealing to me. However, I could definitely see them being worn on the basketball court. Now pairing them with some jeans and a button up…ehh not so much.
