Adding color to your feet is a nice way to welcome spring. Turn to Nike for three new pastel basketball kicks – LeBron X Low, Kobe 8 System and KD V – that will drop March 29, just in time for Easter Sunday. Naturally, Easter eggs inspire the vivid colorways. Dip into the details below.

LeBron X Low
LeBron James’ low-cut signature kick will release in an all-around mint hue, the "it" color for spring. The shoe is built with Max Air 360, which Nike says cushions your feet and offers impact protection. Flywire technology supports the foot; and the low cut silhouette is purposed to give the foot greater range of motion.

Kobe 8 System
The most striking of the Easter pack, the Kobe 8 System features a color-block body of blue, yellow and purple. The upper portion of the shoe shows off Bryant’s signature snakeskin pattern. On the performance front, the shoe is built for quickness and integrates Nike Engineered Mesh, which the brand says helps give the shoe a lightweight feel.

Blue-green tones make up this kick’s aesthetic. Spot a dotted paint pattern on the side Swoosh, shoe tongue and along the heel. Nike Air in the heel and Zoom cushioning in the forefoot help shield the foot against intense pounding and also keep it comfortable.
