Each shoe in the collection is modeled after a main character from the hit cartoon show.

Nike’s latest creation comes in the form of an unlikely collaboration between cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants and basketballer Kyrie Irving. The two have teamed up for a five-shoe collection modeled after the five main characters of the beloved cartoon series. The star of the show, SpongeBob SquarePants, is represented by the Nike Kyrie 5 silhouette outfitted in bright yellow with golden dots. Other characters, like Patrick Starr and Squidward Tentacles, come in the Nike Kyrie 5 model as well but in a two-tone pink and soft blue colorway respectively. A key design highlight for the Kyrie 5 renditions is the Venus Flytrap-inspired lacing unit stamped with the Nickelodeon logo.

The Kyrie Low 2 makes an appearance as well for characters like Krusty Krab owner Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob’s favorite astronaut squirrel Sandy Cheeks. Mr. Krabs’ rendition of the Kyrie Low 2 comes in a bright red upper that is complemented with gold, jade, and blue accents. The Sandy Cheeks Kyrie Low 2 seems to be the least wild of the lot with a muted down white and grey colorway inspired by the character’s astronaut suit. The subtle detail of a pink flower can be found on its midfoot overlay.
