Just like clockwork, Nike Basketball is back with a patriotic Independence Day-themed collection for 2015. This time around, a new model joins the fray in the form of Kyrie Irving's first signature shoe, the Kyrie 1.
The highlight of this year's collection is the first appearance of the KD8, which makes its debut in a "Soar/Bright Crimson/White/Midnight Navy" colorway. Based around a patterned red, white, and blue Flyweave upper, these KDs are finished off with a navy midsole shank and red Zoom Air tooling. The "4th of July" KD8 retails for $180.
Kobe Bryant's latest is also adorned with a patterned upper, blending a mix of red, white, and blue with stars at each toe box. They "4th of July" Kobe X is complemented with a translucent gum sole and will retail for $180.
Although LeBron James fell short of a third championship ring, his signature line continues to flourish with the "4th of July" LeBron 12. Mixing alternating shades of "Light Crimson" and "Bright Crimson", these fiery high-tops feature a stars-and-stripes pattern on the Hyperfuse shell and details on the heel. Retail is set at $200.
Rounding out this collection is the "4th of July" Kyrie 1. This is one of the more simple offerings from the pack, but still manages to work a pattern in underneath its mesh base. These will retail for $110.
All of these sneakers will release on July 27 at 10 a.m. on Nike.com.
