Excitement around the impending release of the SpongeBob Nike Kyrie collection is understandably high, and ahead of its debut in August, official images of SpongeBob’s own Nike Kyrie 5 have been revealed. Dressed in SpongeBob’s signature vivid yellow colorway and featuring brown/red accents on the midsole and outsole, these Kyries are then stuffed full of sponge-themed details. The entire upper is covered with golden dots as a nod to the cartoon legend’s porous body, while the lateral side Swoosh is given a playful squiggly makeover. The standard eye-of-Horus detail on the heel and KI tongue badge are both gone as well, replaced instead by a cartoon-y fonts. SpongeBob’s grinning mug graces the insole, a Nickelodeon logo appears on the Venus flytrap-inspired lace overlay, and a “signature” appears on the tongue’s inner lining to complete the look. Kyrie Irving‘s appreciation for the beloved cartoon is well-known, and you’ll be able to share in his fandom come August 10th when these unique Nike shoes release for $130 USD. Check out a full set of official images directly below, and stay tuned for updates on the rest of the pack as they’re available.
