Easter egg hunts may be for kids, but the hunt for unique Nike Basketball shoes welcomes all comers. In anticipation of Easter Sunday, March 31, Nike will release special Easter colorways for the LEBRON X LOW, KOBE 8 SYSTEM and KD V on March 29. Nike Basketball designers drew on the tradition of painting, dying and decorating Easter eggs as inspiration for the collection’s pastel-colored palette. LEBRON X LOW 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. KOBE 8 SYSTEM 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. KD V 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. {gallery}nikeeaster{/gallery} The new Nike Basketball Easter collection – LEBRON X LOW, KOBE 8 SYSTEM and KD V – will be available globally beginning March 29 at select retail stores and at Nike.com.
