It was LeBron James’ Nike Basketball lowtop signatures that led the way for performance models to show up in orange, black and neutral colorways for summer, but for obvious reasons, the King won’t be the name you think of when you examine this new Kevin Durant sig. That’s because although they have a similarly vaguely ‘military’ look that’s shown up on several LeBron Lows, this new Nike Zoom KD IV opts for Rogue Green rather than grey for a palette that ends up too close to the legendary UNDFTD x Air Jordan IV not to mention what’s widely considered Jordan Brand’s finest collaborative release. Then again, these are colors that naturally work together irrespective of the back story, and you can see more of this Undefeated-leaning Zoom KD 4 in additional images after the jump below. These are arriving at select Asian retailers tomorrow so check back with Sneaker News for word on US availability and let us know how you feel about these in lieu of a KD IV Elite. Via SM

I'm actually feeling this shoe, for some strange reason. Has a military vibe, but no tacky camoflauge. The colors are well chosen, and also in the right spots.
is it me or do i not see green? i really hope that grey isn't supposed to be considered a shade of green lol
