Nike is getting ready to release a cool new sneaker series for children, inspired by three of its star basketball athletes’ favorite modes of travel when they were kids themselves. Featuring three special-edition styles, the Nike Basketball Court Motion Pack will be available globally at Nike.com and select retail locations.
Throwing back to his days as a young skateboarder, Kyrie Irving’s Kyrie 2 Court Deck shoe showcases a sleek black-and-white design, detailed with a skull motif. Like its adult version, the Kyrie 2 has an outsole curvature for smooth lateral transitions, a responsive midsole and a mesh upper for breathability and durability.
Kevin Durant’s shoe, the KD8 Court Glider, is done in the same bold orange color as the bike he wheeled around on as a kid. The sneaker is built with Nike Zoom for responsive cushioning as well as dynamic Flywire cables for lockdown, just like the adult model.
LeBron James, who fantasized about teleportation as a kid, put his stamp on the colorful LeBron 13 Sudden Impact, which is detailed with futuristic graphics. A zoned Hyperposite upper delivers supportive, cushioned comfort, while a Zoom Air heel unit provides responsive cushioning.
James’ shoe will debut tomorrow, followed by Durant’s on Feb. 1 and Irving’s on Feb. 6.
