The Nike Kyrie x SpongeBob SquarePants Shoe Collection is Coming Back

The SpongeBob SquarePants Nike Kyrie Shoe Collection is Coming Back

Nickelodeon, Nike, and Kyrie Irving's SpongeBob SquarePants 20th anniversary capsule collection of sneakers launched back in August and sold out faster than limited edition Krabby Patties that come with Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy toys. That's not surprising when you look at the colorful sneaker designs they created based on SpongeBob, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Sandy Cheeks, and Mr. Krabs (they're pretty much perfect). If you missed your opportunity the first time around, your second chance is happening tomorrow (Tuesday, October 15th, 2019). Here's what you need to know...

Starting tomorrow, October 15th, at precisely 10:00 am EST (7am PST) you will be able to order the Kyrie x SpongeBob SquarePants shoe collection via the links below:

- SpongeBob SquarePants Kyrie 5 ($130)
- Patrick Star Kyrie 5 ($130)
- Squidward Tentacles Kyrie 5 ($130)
- Sandy Cheeks Kyrie Low 2 ($110)
- Mr. Krabs Kyrie Low 2 ($110)

The Kyrie x SpongeBob SquarePants is available in both adult and kids sizes.

As a backup, note that the sneakers also launched at Foot Locker back in August and they may return tomorrow.

Nike will also be releasing a special SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie 5 sneaker featuring a “Pineapple House” design later this month!

From Nike:

"In 1999, the world fell in love with an incurably optimistic sponge. 20 years, over 200 episodes and countless memes later, SpongeBob SquarePants continues to inspire joy, connecting with generations of super-fans, like Kyrie Irving. In collaboration with Nickelodeon, the Kyrie x SpongeBob SquarePants collection celebrates Kyrie’s love for one of television’s most memorable shows and cultural phenomenon bringing Bikini Bottom to the basketball court…and beyond!"

"What makes our collaboration with Kyrie and Nike so special is that we are celebrating SpongeBob’s 20th Anniversary with one of SpongeBob’s biggest genuine fans,” said Jose Castro, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Collaborations, VNCP. “Everything from the characters Kyrie chose and how they were designed into the line was done from a true fan’s perspective, and it shows. The sneakers, clothes and accessories became extensions of SpongeBob’s world, and we know fans everywhere will love this collection, just as much as we loved creating it with Kyrie."

The SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie 5 collection itself comes from NBA basketballer Kyrie Irving’s love for the beloved animated series, which is clearly obvious within the stage of element he’s gone to for every product.

SpongeBob SquarePants, which was recently greenlit for a 13th season, has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical which is now touring North America and a global fan base. SpongeBob SquarePants is seen in more than 208 countries and territories, translated in 55+ languages, and averages more than 100 million total viewers every quarter. SpongeBob SquarePants is created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.

Nickelodeon's is currently in the midst of the network's "Best Year Ever", a year-long global celebration of one of the most iconic TV series and characters ever created. The “Best Year Ever” launched with the premiere of “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout,” an original mixed live-action and animated special earlier this summer, and leads up to the Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge, coming summer 2020.

A CG-animated prequel spin-off series, Kamp Koral, following 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants during his summer at sleepaway camp, is also slated to premiere during Summer 2020.
