A few weeks back, we brought you a first look at a new N7 version of the Nike Zoom KD IV set to be a part of Nike’s upcoming summer 2012 collection. The Nike N7 initiative is a program created to help bring sports and physical activities to Native American and Aboriginal communities, and with the large populations residing in the Oklahoma area, Kevin Durant has become very familiar with the program and the people that it helps. When it came time for the next round of Nike N7 releases, Durant stepped up to collaborate on some special KD IV’s as his personal offering to the “Everybody Leaves A Footprint” campaign. The shoe was done up in both black and white colorways, each richly decorated with the special touches that have come to be expected on N7 footwear. The shoes won’t hit NikeStore and other select retailers until later this summer, but in the meantime, you can get a look at them on Kevin’s feet tonight against the Clippers. Official images and more info on the release and N7 program await after the jump along with a special video introduction from KD himself.
The Nike N7 Zoom KDIV will be available in white and black later this spring at Nikestore.com and Nike retail locations as part of the Summer 2012 Nike N7 collection. The turquoise color highlighted on the special version of his signature shoe is deeply symbolic of friendship and community in Native American culture, and is the foundation color of the N7 collection. A portion of profits from sales of the N7 collection help to support the N7 Fund, which awards grants to Native American and Aboriginal grassroots sport and fitness programs for youth. The fund has raised more than $1 million for grantees since it began, including the Central Oklahoma American Indian Health Council and local program 4 The Love of the Game.
YOU GOTTA KNOW HOW TO ROCK THE STRAPS! STEP YOUR CREATIVITY UP AND STOP HATIN' ON A GREAT CAUSE AND A GREAT COLORWAY!
Yeah I'll be grabbing these for sure!! Run these at the all native tourney in Alaska and break some necks!!!!!
Amazing how year in and year out the KD line always puts out fire product while never going over the $100 retail price mark , makes you wonder how in the same time frame so many other lines, Signature shoes have shot up to what may be $300+ (Lebron X elite) soon
I think we all can agree, the KDIV is the shoe of this year... maybe its the fact nike is trying to push him for mvp, or that there is a lot of lebron hate out there these days... but they have got me drooling over this make-ups
I'm going to kill em on the aau circuit with these, just watch# water tower swagg gang # findlay prep
The KD5s will be over 100. Lebrons cost more because there is more material to the shoe, and also a lot more expensive and higher quality materials that are used. Sounds like you don't even have any of these shoes...
Also because KD regulates the price of his line and wont allow them to climb up into 3 figures, never once did I comment on superior quality so breaking down the materials is irrelevant. Sounds like you dont have reading comprehension
south beach is gay af so is lebron so is nike's elite crap that's why durant aint doin that he knows its cray to pay 250 for a frickin pair of shoes man gtfoh wit ur south beach hype
