2. Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse QS ‘Independence Day’ 2014
The USA got left out during the geographically oriented Nike Air Max releases. There was the “Home Turf”” series focused on European cities, followed by the “Beaches of Rio” that took things down south. Finally, taking inspiration from the Land of the Free, this Nike Air Max 90 “Independence Day” pack comes with the US flag flying high on the tongue making them perfect for a July weekend filled with BBQ and a night filled with fireworks.
3. Nike KD 7 ‘Independence Day’ 2014
Kevin Durant’s seventh signature sneaker, the Nike KD VII “Independence Day” becomes the first colorway to debut dressed in the traditional U.S. colors. This is the first KD to be included in the year’s Independence Day sneaker releases. Pushed out just in time for the 4th of July, this USA inspired appearance of red, white, and blue is a good starting look for the sneaker. Sporting a sweet mix of the iconic models KD4 and KD6, this edition should be a popular one this year.
4. Nike LeBron XI ‘Independence Day’ 2014
This July 4th let the fireworks grace your feet by way of the Nike LeBron XI ‘Independence Day’. For this Lebron 11 in a red, white and blue theme, is in full effect and the contrast is all the way turned up. Using a white and navy palette as a base the hits of red really stand out in the mix as well as the light gum outsole. The underside of the shoe lifts up to reveal a burst of fireworks as a nice touch to finish the look off.
5. Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Independence Day’ 2014
The 4th of July is one of those special holidays that has sneaker companies all excited with some well timed footwear. Last year Nike Sportswear came through with the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse “USA”, which has since skyrocketed, thanks in no little part to a Kanye mashup. For 2014 the Beaverton brand serves up this Nike Air Force 1 Low “Independence Day”, which drapes stars and stripes across the iconic Nike Air Force 1 silhouette.

6. Nike Blazer Mid 77 ‘Independence Day’ 2014
Patriotism is one trait that is never lacking in the American spirit and Nike looks to celebrate this American spirit with the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 “Independence Day”. Independence Day sneaker releases tend to feature classic shoes so the Blazer Mid 77 is a perfect candidate for an ‘Independence Day’ colorway. Released in 1972, the Nike Blazer was one of the first basketball sneakers Nike ever created. Designed to compete with Converse and Adidas sneakers that were dominating the court at that time, the kicks feature an American flag motif complete with stars and stripes.
7. Nike Kobe 9 EM ‘Independence Day’ 2014
Keeping with the spirit of the World Cup this summer, the Black Mamba’s latest signature matches the U.S. soccer jerseys. While most “Independence Day” deliveries play with the red shade, this low-top Nike Kobe 9 EM uses multiple hues of blue to make a point. A navy midsole and heel clip sit on top of an ice blue outsole, supporting a royal blue upper that is dressed in a tribal-like print. This Kobe 9 EM colorway is now out of stock but see where to get Kobe 9 EM colorways in our new guide.
8. Nike LeBron 11 Low ‘Independence Day’ 2014
Every LeBron release in 2014 has been eagerly anticipated, so it was no surprise that this was one of the Independence Day sneaker releases for 2014 that generated the most buzz. LeBron 11 “USA”, “Independence Day”, “Fireworks” – call it what you want. This Nike LeBron 11 Low is this year’s country rendition from LBJ’s signature line. Embracing the flashiness that Americans not necessarily spurn, these USA-themed Nike LeBron 11 Lows use a vivid red upper complemented by a white Swoosh and navy blue heel accents. Finished off with a cool grey full-length visible Air unit and two-tone rope laces, this “Independence Day” style code is pure Americana.
9. Nike Dunk High Premium SB ‘Stars’
True to its nickname, this Nike SB Dunk High puts all of the attention on the lights, borrowing ideas from a stars-filled night sky. Laid out like a planetarium, the sneaker sports a dark base with accents highlighting the heel. A blacked out upper sits atop a gum bottom subtly detailed with a brown leather tongue patch and gold eyelets. But the element that takes centre stage is clearly the royal blue ankle collar printed with white stars, that light up this Nike SB “Stars” edition.
