Prepped for the Playoffs, the four-shoe collection launches on May 5

As the energy for the playoffs builds, Nike Basketball's Flip the Switch collection spotlights the postseason's electricity with unique fade patterns and broken Swoosh logos. The four signature shoes for LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Paul George are given common textural elements, but also carry unique traits connected to each respective athlete's charge to the championship.

Lebron 14

Built for James's explosive style of play, the LEBRON 14 features a white and black upper with articulated Zoom Air — the ultimate cushioning system for the four-time MVP and three-time champion.

KD9 Elite

Kevin Durant hopes to bring the golden trophy back to the Golden State, and his KD9 Elite features a melange grey Flyknit upper with a midsole gold fade running above the full-length Zoom Air unit. 

KYRIE 3

In Game 7 of last year's Finals, Irving's heroic three-pointer sealed Cleveland's first title. The prolific point guard is equally energized for this year's postseason run with a dark grey KYRIE 3 that features a multicolor blue and purple outsole with highlighted traction pods. 

PG1

Since debuting in January, the PG1 has created buzz both on and off the court. George's dark grey PG1 is set off with a bright forefoot strap and midsole fading. 

The four-shoe Flip the Switch Collection is available globally May 5 on nike.com and at select retailers.
