Nike Releases 'Easter' Version of Signature Kicks for LeBron, Kobe and Durant

Jake SilverSocial Media StaffMarch 27, 2014


Three of Nike's most coveted signature shoe models for NBA players have gotten a crafty makeover for the Easter holiday. The LeBron 11 Low, Kobe 9 EM and KD VI will each show off a bit of what makes Easter iconic in America.

First we see the LeBron 11 Low. Per Nike:

The LEBRON 11 Low represents an evolution of James’ signature shoe, now with a lower cut, full-length Max Air bag and zonal articulation for optimal flexibility and breathability. This special Easter edition takes inspiration from wearing your Sunday best, in a clean white upper with a paisley pattern inspired by the tropical palm trees of Miami.


Next up is the Kobe 9 EM, which takes after Easter egg designs:

The KOBE 9 EM features engineered mesh and dynamic Flywire for natural motion without compromising strength and durability. Inspired by the Easter tradition of dying colorful eggs, the Kobe 9’s upper makes a splash with its green and blue dyed aesthetic.


Finally, we see the KD VI, which is in camo, like a tough-to-find Easter egg:

The performance design of the KD VI was inspired by the precision of a finely crafted wristwatch. The shoe’s low-cut and its light weight came at the specific request of Durant. The traditional Easter egg hunt influenced the custom camouflage pattern mixed with Easter iconography featured on this special edition KD VI.


Easter is on April 20 this year, and the Easter collection will hit shelves on April 18.
