With the return of professional basketball (in modified form) after a period of absence due to the pandemic, Nike Basketball is serving up a host of new sneakers to tear up the court. Check out the complete Nike Basketball Summer 2020 lineup below:
LEBRON 17 “Graffiti”
A modified version of the LEBRON 17, the LEBRON 17 Graffiti will be releasing in “Fire Red” and “Cold Blue” colorways on July 28th via SNKRS in North America. The shoe uses Nike’s signature Knitposite upper and a full-length Zoom Air unit.
LEBRON 17 Low “TITAN”
A collaboration with Manila sneaker giants TITAN, this shoe celebrates the deep well of love for basketball in the Philippines. You can read more about this special release and all the small details it incorporates here. The shoe releases on August 8th in North America.
KYRIE 3 Low “Eclipse” and “Inner Harmony”
These two Kyrie 3s celebrate Irving’s “fascination with the mysterious,” with both incorporating occult-oriented symbols and hieroglyphics. While the Eclipse colorway uses white and black to strike the balance between day and night, Inner Harmony celebrates the in-between with a sunrise gradient. The former colorway releases in North America in August, while the Inner Harmony is set to drop in September.
KD13 “Nike Nationals”
This model celebrates Nike’s annual summertime basketball tournament, using a gold and white grid-patterned upper below a textured gold swoosh and eyestay wings. The model is rounded out by light blue accents and detailing, and it’s set to release on July 30th in North America.
PG4 x Gatorade “Lemon Lime” and “Orange”
The unique PG4 gets two Gatorade-style colorway makeovers with one model coming in a bright orange and white and the other in lime green and white. While Nike has a long history of Gatorade collaborations, these stand out as remaining versatile and true to the shoe’s original design while showcasing the playful, citrusy colors of the drink. While the Green colorway releases July 31st, the Orange will arrive on August 8th via SNKRS.
Earlier this year saw a release of the “PCG,” an ACG-inspired rendition of the Paul George signature shoe. This serves as its follow up, incorporating sky blue and cream colors and stamped with a “PCG” pyramid logo on the heel. This colorway arrives sometime in September.
Zoom Freak 2 “White Cement”
This rendition of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s second signature sneaker with the Swoosh is inspired by Giannis’ walks through the Sepolia neighborhood of Athens on his way to practice. The shoe releases on October 1st in North America.
Zoom BB NXT “USA”
One of Nike’s mainline basketball shoes arrives in USA colors this August. The shoe uses a full-length REACT midsole, dual Nike Zoom Air pods and an integrated plate for energy return and impact protection.
