Nike team up with Kyrie Irving for Spongebob Squarepants sneaker range

A collection of five shoes based on characters from kids show, ‘Spongebob Squarepants’, have been revealed by Nike.

Brooklyn Nets star, Kyrie Irving, is the latest athlete from the NBA to combine fandom into his signature shoe. Teaming up with Nike, Irving’s forthcoming pack contains two Kyrie Low 2 and three Kyrie 5 colourways.

Each of the five shoes is based on a notable character from the Nickelodeon show, ‘Spongebob Squarepants’. Front and centre is, of course, Spongebob. Styled on the Kyrie 5 silhouette, the shoe comes in a striking yellow woven finish dotted with ‘holes’. Along the side there’s a wobbly kelp-inspired ‘swoosh’ and the words “Spongebob Squarepants” printed onto the inside of the tongue.

As with each of the shoes in the pack, peek at the insole and you’ll find your favourite character peering back and across the outer-tongue you’ll find the Nickelodeon logo.

The rest of the collection pays tribute to: Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Mr. Krabs and Sandy Cheeks.
