Nike KD9 "Premiere"
Release Date: July 1st
Kevin Durant has already announced that he plans to play in the 2016 Summer Olympics and these patriotic "Premiere" Nike KD9s are the shoes that he''ll be lacing up in Rio.
The low-cut sneaker, designed by Nike's Leo Chang, features a coke white flyknit upper with red branding, a red full length Zoom Air unit, and hits of blue throughout.
Specifically, the Nike KD9 features a pattern with a distinct honeycomb structure precisely knit for the multidimensional movement of basketball and Durant’s lateral quickness. Flyknit technology engineering locks down the forefoot while still allowing the foot to move naturally. Flyknit’s efficient material use also ensures the upper is lightweight, without compromising strength.
This particular "USA" colorway of the KD9 will be up for grabs on July 1st with a very consumer-friendly price tag of $150.
