Nike Basketball 2013 Easter Collection

words // Brandon Richard

Later this month, Nike Basketball will release the 2013 Easter Pack, consisting of the LeBron X Low, Kobe 8 System and KD V. Designers drew inspiration from the tradition of painting, dying and decorating Easter eggs for the collection's pastel-colored palette.

The low version of the LeBron X debuts with a mint base and a graphic collar lining in Easter egg hues. Vivid color blocking of the Kobe 8 System overlays egg painting technique on the snakeskin pattern throughout the upper. Soft green tones are featured on the KD V, as well as playful paint patterns on the Swoosh, tongue and visible Max Air unit.

Nike Basketball's 2013 Easter Collection will be available Friday, March 29 at select retailers and
