Spring is very much upon us, and Nike is celebrating the winter weather fading with the annual holiday themed Easter Collection. Much like Easter Collections from years past, Nike rolls out signature shoes from it's most notorious embassadors all featuring a festive Easter themed facelift based in bright pastel colors. The 2014 Nike Basketball Easter Collection stays the course, but with a slight twist by introducing a low-cut version of the popular signature models from LeBron, Kobe and KD.

The LeBron 11 Low embodies the city of Miami and wearing your Sundays best. The low-cut version of this ultimate performance shoe keeps the main tech features from the high-top version but includes a full-length Max Air bag and zonal articulation for optimal flexibility and breathability. Inspired by the Palm Trees of Miami and always wearing your Sundays best, the LeBron 11 Low features a white upper and is complemented by a paisley green pattern throughout.

The Nike Kobe 9 EM is a performance marvel just like the high-top Elite version but features engineered mesh and dynamic Flywire for natural motion, while maintaining it's strength and durability. Kobe's Easter shoe was inspired by holiday's tradition of dying eggs and features a green and blue theme.

Finally the Nike KD 6, which got some design ideas direct from the Thunder superstar. Durant asked for a more low-cut and lightweight version for his Easter sneaker and Nike happily obliged. The color scheme for the KD 6 is inspired from traditional Easter egg hunts and dons a custom camoflage look.

The 2014 Nike Basketball Easter Collection also features a limited edition t-shirt to match each signature shoe. The Easter Collection will be available April 18 at Nike.com, and select retailers globally.
