Quick question: Am I allowed to absolutely love Nike‘s new “Easter” basketball collection despite the fact that I haven’t seen them in person yet, let alone tried them on or even played in them? That might depend on your stance among sneakerheads. Some of the old schools dudes would call you a hypebeast if you liked something just from a few pictures. I just can’t help it. I love this collection. It’s simple. The inspirations make sense. And above all else, the colorways are stupid dope.
Of the four sneakers, only the KD7’s liquid lime and vapor green gives me any sort of pause, and that’s a slight one. It’s still nice. It’s just that the shades of red and purple used for the Kobe X — inspired by the color of a robin’s egg — and the Kyrie 1 — a classic color to fuse the old school and the new — are so incredible that they can’t help but stick out. Lastly, the LeBron 12 might be the best of all, featuring black Hyperposite wings to contrast a subtle floral print on the pastel sunset glow-colored upper. Beyond lit.
The collection is dropping this weekend at Champs Sports and considering all four of these kicks are must-haves, you best have your wallet ready. But before you do that, chances are you feel like you need to know a little bit more about them. What else is coming with them? Will there be shirts? What do the colors mean? What tech is being used? Don’t worry about all of that. Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Nike’s “Easter” Basketball Collection.
