As the reigning Most Valuable Player and one of the NBA's most dynamic stars, it is only fitting the we continue to see the evolution of Kevin Durant's signature shoes. Along with the help of Nike designer Leo Chang, KD created a basketball shoe that allows him to move quickly on the court without sacrificing great support and stability. The latest KD is truly a performance hybrid and utilizes a combination of Nike Zoom Air, Flywire technology, and for the fist time ever in KD's signature line, Hyperposite technology.
The "weatherman" influences that have been a staple in the KD line since the Nike Zoom KD IV and subsequently followed on Durant's fifth and sixth signature shoe, the latest KD continues the trend. Staying true to the KD's fascination with meteorology, the Nike KD7 "35,000 Degrees" uses the narrative of lighting and more specifically, the average temperature of a lightning strike. Electric colors are prevalent on this KD7 with a bright mango upper, volt outsole with hits of deep grey throughout. Look for the Nike KD7 "35,000 Degrees" to hit select Shoe City stores on Saturday, July 12 for $150.
