Published Add your comment

We were just thinking it has been at least 24 hours since Nike unveiled any new designs for their signature sneaker range.

But fear not. 

Today the sports behemoth have released their 2014 Easter Collection offerings, hot on the heels of their 'hero' collection.

Again, the LeBron 11, KD VI and Kobe 9 have been given a fresh new look with the traditional Easter colors taking prominence on all three sneakers.

The trio of new designs have been given individual festive makeovers and all use low cut designs.

But each have been given a unique backstory by Nike.

The LeBron 11, seen furthest to the right in the picture above, "takes inspiration from wearing your Sunday best" and the "tropical palm trees of Miami".

Durant specifically requested the Easter KD VI's to be low-cut and light weight, and it's camouflage design are apparently inspired by the traditional Easter egg hunt.

As for the Kobe 9?

The Lakers' legend's signature sneaker combine a green and blue dyed aesthetic is built on the idea of dying eggs at Easter.

All three will be available from April 18, and come complete with a matching t-shirt when purchased.
