What do you wear if you live in a pineapple under the sea? Why, Nike's just-unveiled SpongeBob SquarePants x Kyrie Irving sneaker collection. The designs are modeled after Irving's Nike Basketball models (such as the Kyrie 5 and the Kyrie 2 Low) but are designed to resemble the show's colorful characters: Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs and, of course, SpongeBob himself. The attention to detail is impressive: For example, not only are the SpongeBob kicks bright yellow, but the Nike swoosh and back of the shoe look like his porous, spongy complexion. The kicks will be available on August 10.
