Kevin Durant’s star seems to rise higher and higher with each successive season he plays in the NBA, last year being particularly grand with him and the OKC squad making it all the way to the 2012 NBA Finals. There’s no doubt that his sneaker line has been doing the same, but can this next iteration sustain the success of the Nike Zoom KD IV? We’ll have to wait and see, but while we do we’ve been privy to some early shots along the way, these again showing off a distinctly Oklahoma City release. Click through with us for some more early angles on the Nike Zoom KD V and tell us if you’re feeling these a little more upon seeing the latest photos.

The point is this kd deserves as well as kobe to get a decent shoe.. Every year everybody with nike gets shitted on besides lebron.. Im a big lebron fan but at the same time were talkin bout shoes not the game itself ... Show these men the respect the shoe game is waiting on...
Why is Nike making all their basketball shoes with the same look? I'm tired of the mountain peaks! They got like 8 sneakers with the damn mountain peaks or wings or whatever you wanna call em! They did my boy Kev dirty! These are a downgrade from the IV
not feelin these at all! can we see the kbviii already?? come on...no love for the mamba..damn...my fav kd to date was the kdii...did hear great things on the kdiv thou!
mug but hey u never kno the new lebron x was ugly as hell then we all saw different colors n we warmed up to them so mabye its the same for these
I feel like there are gonna be some dope colorways when the KD V's drop. I'm interested to see more...
Nike needs to start reconizing that kd is one of the greatest scorers in history and start making him some real kicks... They also need to get off lebrons meat!!!
I think I read these are sorta low top; look at the back it's not that high. But I'm not really feeling these
@SoloAllday Last time I checked LeBron just beat KD in the Finals since when does second place allow you to have more clout than the champ?
@SoloAllday KD wants a low price point shoe, Nike would be charging a lot more and putting in a lot more tech if they could.
@heat_meiser Honestly it looks like Nike didn't put NO thought or creativity into this design, smh!
@JoeSoCavalierJames MORE CLOUT THAN THE CHAMP ? SMH let me dead this right here .. the kd iv $95 looks better than the Lebron x which is $185 ( not the plus version which is $290!) .. it all comes down to the design i dont care about clout or any of that lmao
@JoeSoCavalierJames Yeah but Nike has honestly been leeched onto Lebrons nuts for a long ass time
@DominicD @SoloAllday the KD V will retail for $115 .. there are thousands of sneakers that are that price and lower that look better than these in my opinion. nike shouldn't be just adding more tech , they should be coming up with better designs! .. the KD iv was 95 and looked amazing so there should not be a reason to add $20 to the KD V and have the design look like a ordinary basketball shoe now performance wise is another issue these could be great to ball in .. time will tell
