According to the traditional Chinese Zodiac, 2012 will mark the Year of the Dragon. Hopefully we’ll get to see Kevin Durant’s inner dragon emerge this NBA season, but despite the 2011-12 Season still in shambles, Nike Basketball is pushing as strong as ever with its three signature Nike Basketball sneakers – one of which is Kevin Durant’s Nike Zoom KD IV. Here’s a look at a special edition ‘Year of the Dragon’ colorway; it features that familiar Blue/Orange colorway (ahem, Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’) with a unique graphic on the strap as well as the tongue, signifying the beautiful scales of the powerful dragon. The ‘Year of the Dragon’ Nike Zoom KD IV is set for a release this Spring 2012, so continue reading for another look of these on-feet (alongside the ‘Nerf’ colorway) and let us know what you think. via Leo_Chang.
