nike ZOOM KD 9
Color: UNIVERSITY RED/WHITE
Kevin Durant just had to do it, didn’t he? Even for a superstar it has to be unbearable, knowing your new signature shoe is ready to go. Like Nike adores to say themselves: Just Do It. That is what he did. And it almost paid off big-time. His Oklahoma City Thunder had the reigning champions, the Golden State Warriors, on the ropes and weren’t able to finish them off. They blew a 3-1 lead, allowing the Dubs to advance into the NBA finals. But you couldn’t possibly blame it on the shoes – they didn’t put anyone down. If anything, they made the early lead in the series even possible at all. With the KD 9 Nike presents a sneaker superior to everything the KD 8 had to offer. Thanks to a re-imagined Nike Zoom Air cushioning the responsiveness reaches its modern day peak and enables a natural motion, providing an unique feel like never before. To cushion hard landings, the units are thicker in the heel and thinner in the forefoot area – enhancing control. While the on-court performance is second to none, the Nylon enhanced Flyknit upper makes sure your very own Kevin Durant signature shoe feels like it’s taylor-made. Why you ask? Nylon prevents the Flyknit upper from stretching and therefore cautioniously protects it. A perfect fit perfectly fitting the game of basketball. Or a perfectly fitting game of basketball for a perfect fit? Whatever. But what does matter is the translucent rubber outsole: traction. Because you just can’t get enough of it, can you? Explosive cuts, directional changes and even changes of speed. Too many questions were asked prior the release and the latest KD signature shoe had even more answers to offer. Although in the end, there is only one question that matters. Is the shoe worth it? You can bet on it.
Another thing you can bet on is the KD 9’s traction. Quick direction changes, cuts, pull-ups – everything is possible thanks to latest technologies. A classic red and white flyknit colorway adorns the latest KD 9 and is accordingly known as the NIKE KD 9 UNIVERSITY RED . It does not matter if the shoe is worn on-court or just casually for a walk around the block – Durant’s latest signature shoe is as urban as it is functional.
