Nike Celebrates the End of Summer With the Kobe 11, Kyrie 2, and KD9

Something no school-age person in their right mind would ever say — “Thank God summer is over!!!” – seems to be the theme of the latest Nike pack, simply titled Summer. In celebration of the memories of summer and the laid-back attitude most of us have in the hot months, the colorways of the upcoming Kobe 11, KD9, and Kyrie 2 take on subtle hits of heat on a linen/subdued upper. Especially eye-catching for the WearTesters crew is the gum bottoms on all three – does it get any better than a white shoe with a gum bottom?

The mellow tones and great performance should make these a hit for the courts, but all 3 shoes have shown they look as good off-court as on. We just wish the Summer pack was a little earlier.

We already know the Kyrie 2 is scheduled for an August 31 release at a retail of $120, exactly what the regular versions sold for. Now we learn that the Kobe and KD will also release that day for the usual retail, the Kobe 11 at $160 and the KD9 at $150, so no increase at all for the pack.

As always, drop bombs below the pics and tell us how you like them. If anything changes, stay tuned right here for the news.
