Nike unveils ‘Easter Collection’ for LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant
While Nike's 2013 Easter designs ran the full spectrum, green is clearly the dominant color this time around.
Heat forward LeBron James, Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Lakers guard Kobe Bryant are all getting spring-themed, low-cut versions of their latest signature sneakers to coincide with the annual holiday.
The unveiling of Nike Basketball's "Easter Collection" comes just days after the "Elite Series Hero Collection" was announced earlier this week.
Let's take a closer look at Nike's 2014 Easter Collection, which is set for release on April 18, two days before Easter Sunday.
LEBRON 11 LOW
This white-and-green Easter version of James' "LeBron 11" signature sneakers is one of the simplest, cleanest versions of the shoe we've seen this year.
The LEBRON 11 Low represents an evolution of James’ signature shoe, now with a lower cut, full-length Max Air bag and zonal articulation for optimal flexibility and breathability. This special Easter edition takes inspiration from wearing your Sunday best, in a clean white upper with a paisley pattern inspired by the tropical palm trees of Miami.
Durant's Easter "KD VI" signature sneakers boast a distinct camouflage pattern that would be right at home in a forest.
The performance design of the KD VI was inspired by the precision of a finely crafted wristwatch. The shoe’s low-cut and its light weight came at the specific request of Durant. The traditional Easter egg hunt influenced the custom camouflage pattern mixed with Easter iconography featured on this special edition KD VI.
KOBE 9 EM
Nike has used dyed eggs as inspiration before, and Bryant's whirling green, yellow and blue Easter "Kobe 9" signature sneakers continue the tradition.
The KOBE 9 EM features engineered mesh and dynamic Flywire for natural motion without compromising strength and durability. Inspired by the Easter tradition of dying colorful eggs, the Kobe 9’s upper makes a splash with its green and blue dyed aesthetic.
