SpongeBob x Nike Kyrie 5 'Pineapple House' Design Releases

Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie 5 collection is set to expand with the release of a special “Pineapple House” colorway!


The most ambitious release of the series to date, rather than honoring the zany cast of characters, this model of the Nike Kyrie 5 is now borrowing the likeness of the pineapple home that SpongeBob and this pet Gary the Snail lives in.

Translating every fixture and notable element with precision, the uppers print arrives in deep connection to the fruit of choice: It features an upper primtthat mimics the build of the pineapple house with light tans and slightly darker splotched line with zigzags just as it appears in the television series, complete with a leafy Green lace cover (shield) that nods to the house’s crown. The Swooshes symbolic of port windows providing a view of Bikini Bottom. A nautical wheel logo is embroidered on the heels completed with Nickelodeon branding on the lace covers and SpongeBob graphics on the insoles. The metallic silvers of the doors and bent chimney can be found along the midsole with speckles towards the heel calling to the sands that surround.

Even the inside soles are tremendously cool, with Spongebob’s face poking out.

Initially rumored for an Tuesday, October 1, 2019 launch, the "Pineapple House" Kyrie 5 recently popped up on the Foot Locker app with an Oct. 24 release date. We'll keep you updated on the official drop details in the coming weeks.

Look for the SpongeBob x Nike Kyrie 5 “Pineapple House” to release on Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD.

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.
