For anyone born in the ’90s, you probably remember a yellow rectangular character that lived in a pineapple under the sea. And for any Spongebob Squarepants fan reliving their childhood through streaming services today, they can be a child again and bring their favorite character to life in the Kyrie 5 Spongebob shoes.
Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn Nets Basketball Player, paid tribute to one of his favorite cartoons in his SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie 5 “SpongeBob” shoe, which leads the way for the five-shoe collaboration between the beloved cartoon series and Nike Basketball.
This sneaker takes on Spongebob’s full personality with an Opti Yellow mesh construction accented by hits of brown and a squiggly Swoosh. You can find Spongebob Squarepants as an icon on the sock liner, while the Zoom Air midsole and rubber outsole are modeled after his iconic outfit.
Our favorite yellow sponge gets to share the spotlight with four of his friends. The Spongebob sneaker line includes SpongeBob Squarepants, Patrick Star, and Squidward Tentacles Nike Kyrie 5s and Sandy Cheeks and Mr. Krabs Nike Kyrie 2 Lows in the character colors. There is also a Pineapple House sneaker which, you guessed it, looks like Spongebob’s humble abode under the sea. Apart from “Spongebob” sneakers, you’ll also find apparel and accessories in this Nike collaboration with Kyrie.
The SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie 5 “SpongeBob” released on August 10, 2019 and reflective of the show are a novelty to find today. The collection ranges from about $110- $130 a pair. You can find resale sneakers on sites like StockX.
