These Fun Nike Basketball Sneakers Are Being Released for the NBA’s Opening Week

With the latest 2019–2020 NBA Season scheduled to tip off next week, Nike Basketball has prepared a handful of fresh styles for four of its signature hoops models that are all releasing soon.

The new lineup will include the Kyrie 5, the KD12, the PG3 as well as the Air Zoom Freak 1. Each pair takes inspiration from a different source.

First up, the Kyrie 5 draws elements from Nickelodeon’s hit show “SpongeBob SquarePants,” specifically the character’s pineapple house. Among the details, a pineapple peel-colored upper and a flytrap lacing shroud resembling the fruit’s leaf.

The KD12 is a special iteration inspired by YouTube that combines the white and red color palette of the popular video platform’s logo along with a co-branded graphic on the tongue and a search bar printed on the insole.

The PG3 style once again teams up with NASA, featuring a bright blue textile upper including the administration’s logo on the heel and sockliner.

Wrapping up the collection is the NBA reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s newest “All Bros 2” Air Zoom Freak 1 that pays tribute to his four brothers with eye-catching pink and purple-colored materials covering the shoe’s upper.
