For parents, few memories stack up against a child’s first trip to the barbershop. Paying homage to one of the great traditions in America’s history, Nike Basketball styles its three signature models in colorways inspired by the iconic barbershop pole.

The LeBron 11 and KD 6 are both decked out in metallic silver, complete with turquoise and crimson accents and pole-like striping on the logos. These same colors are also boldly featured on the Kobe 9, which sports an engineered mesh base and striped collar.

These three new Nike basketball shoes are exclusive to kids and are all available now at Eastbay.
