Nike collection celebrates 20 years of SpongeBob

SpongeBob Squarepants is turning 20, and Nike will help the eternally cheerful, Krabby Patty-flipping undersea pineapple-dweller celebrate with a new line of kicks. Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving will collaborate with Nike (NYSE: NKE) and Viacom (Nasdaq: VIA) subsidiary Nickelodeon on a collection based on the show’s beloved ocean creatures, including Patrick Star, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and everyone’s favorite underwater squirrel, Sandy, Women’s Wear Daily reported. The collection will launch Aug. 10 with five versions of Irving’s Kyrie 5 and Kyrie Low 2 sneakers in sizes ranging from toddler to adult.
