Kevin Durant is soaring up the sneaker Power Rankings thanks to the sick special edition colorways of the Nike Zoom KD IV. We’re in the midst of a Zoom KD renaissance with the releases of the Weatherman, upcoming Nerf, and Christmas Day Metallic Bronze, but arriving in early 2012 is yet another high-energy rendition that’ll have your jaw dropped to the ground. Sneaker News already gave you detailed look at the Nike Zoom KD IV China/Year Of The Dragon, but here we have a look at the actual shoe; on the Adaptive Fit strap, tongue, and inner lining is a detailed dragon-skin graphic with traditional dragon detailing on the heel, with one dragon wrapping around the KD logo. The tongue features a Chinese-inspired ’35’ logo as well. The hits just keep coming from the KD IV beat-factory, so check out the detailed images below and stick with Sneaker News for more Zoom KD IV updates as they develop. via weibo.
man i cant mess with KD's kicks availability is like 10 total pair to about 13-17 stores....niketown here DFW awready did there banding process on monday for the nerfs and sneaker sites put up bogus info about who's gonna have them in stock.....dont believe the hype...
1/8" thick in the outer heel? You can't wear these on blacktop! Still, this is the best KD kicks thus far..
Those herringbone pattern blows me away!! KD IVs are murdering Kobe VIIs in the early going. Weathermans , Nerfs, Christmas and now YOTDs Wow....what a resurgence of KD sneakers!!! Can't refuse not to cop any of these sickly good KDs!!!
I like kd iv's but i can't help but wonder if they would look better in a mid instead of low. And the colorways are definitely making these shoes as of late
idk if u can call these a low top. look at the kobes and look at these. i feel like thes are closer to a mid
I dont think you can call them a mid by comparing them to kobes, since the kobes as of late have been about being the lowest basketball shoe on the market.
