361° and Nikola Jokic Dive into Pop Culture with SpongeBob-Themed Basketball Shoes

In December, Denver Nuggets' newly crowned MVP, Nikola Jokic, made waves by transitioning from Nike to 361°. Now, 361° is proud to unveil a unique collaboration with the popular animated series, SpongeBob SquarePants, featuring basketball shoes that blend sports with pop culture in a playful and vibrant way, marking the official kick-off of Jokic's partnership plans.

Introducing the 361° Big3 Future High: A Splash of Color and Personality

The 361° Big3 Future High sports shoes are inspired by the beloved characters of SpongeBob SquarePants, with each pair reflecting the distinct personalities of the show's stars, resulting in a diverse and lively collection.

  • "SpongeBob" Edition: Bright yellow takes center stage, accented by green and brown hues, reminiscent of the pineapple under the sea.
  • "Patrick Star" Edition: A fusion of peach and yellow tones captures the essence of SpongeBob's best friend.
  • "Squidward" Edition: A combination of green and purple reflects the artistic and sometimes grumpy nature of the character.
  • "Mr. Krabs" Edition: Features translucent elements with red highlights, paying homage to the crabby owner of the Krusty Krab.

Performance Meets Character

These shoes are not just about the fun design; they also incorporate advanced performance technologies. The double-layer midsole drive offers excellent cushioning and responsiveness, while a carbon fiber plate provides strong support. The rubber outsole ensures excellent traction, delivering the support and stability needed for top-tier basketball performance.

A Hit with Fans and Players Alike

Nuggets fans have likely noticed Jokic sporting the SpongeBob x 361° BIG3 FUTURE on the court, adding a pop of color and fun to the game. While the version Jokic wears is a specially made high-top PE (Player Exclusive), 361° has also released a standard version for fans to enjoy.

Pre-Order Now Available

361° has announced that the BIG3 Future is the 'strongest generation of BIG3 ever'. Taking inspiration from supercars, the upper is crafted with carbon fiber weaving materials and a thermoplastic overlay for stability, breathability, and lightweight comfort. For the midsole, 361° has developed an exclusive cushioning system called the SOAR SYSTEM.

The Collection

The collection includes four pairs, each corresponding to a main character from SpongeBob SquarePants: SpongeBob, Patrick Star, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs.

This collaboration is a testament to 361°'s commitment to innovation and design, bringing joy and nostalgia to basketball fans and sneaker enthusiasts alike. Whether you're a player looking for performance or a fan of the series, these shoes are sure to make a splash.
