Seeing is believing. In this case the truth is revealed by the appearance of this pair of Nike “lifestyle” performance sneakers (or trainers, as our U.K. friends might say) inspired by SpongeBob Squarepants, the American cartoon mega-hit. The shoes are pink and bubbly in design theme, a reference perhaps to the show’s undersea setting and one of its supporting characters, a similarly hued starfish named Patrick. Aside from any connection to the cartoon series, these Nikes stand on their own as a sick pair of kicks.
