Nike Basketball Easter Collection 2016

Posted by Steven Quach on

This year, Easter lands in March and so will the release dates for the Nike Basketball signature shoes. With lent finally ending, sneakerheads who gave up purchasing shoes can go back and resume fueling their addiction.

Annually, Nike create their signature basketball lines in pastel colors and light hues to honor Easter. Like last year, Nike's Big 4 will all get an Easter colorway.

Remember, the Elite model has only unveiled for LeBron James and Kevin Durant (excludes Kobe Bryant and Kyrie Irving). Last month's All-Star collection excluded Kyrie as he was not selected to participate. Irving missed a great portion of the season as he was recovering from his broken left kneecap.

Nike Kobe XI

It's a bit strange to see but it feels like the Kobe XI resembles a Halloween make-up. The shoes feature a grey to orange gradient and black accents. The right heel features a skull icon.

Nike Kyrie 2

In a proper rendition of the colorful hues of Easter, the Kyries embody the Easter traditions of egg painting best. A white base is infused with a purple outsole, a teal Swoosh, and a mixture of green and orange on the pivot circle.

Nike KD8

Kind of like Kevin Durant's demeanor, the KD8 is short and simple. The shoes feature a neutral grey upper with white accents. The shoes are finished with a gum sole.

Nike LeBron XIII

Looking a bit like the LeBron 13 'XMAS,' these will also feature a white upper and translucent outsole. Mixed with orange, green, and some blue, the shoes are clean but carry a twist.
