It looks like the wait for the eye-popping Nike KD V ‘DMV’ will be a little bit longer than anticipated, with Nike switching the date from the originally announced December 8th out to December 15th. Fortunately you can get your NIKE iD on with the model in the meantime, which should make the wait for the inline colorways just a bit easier. Click through with us for the official images of the Nike KD V ‘DMV’ and let us know if you’re picking them up on 12/15.
Nike KD V
Bright Crimson/White-Wolf Grey
@heat_meiser But KD stated when he first signed for nike that he didn't want his shoes to be over $90 so more people could afford them, because he couldn't afford a lot of shoes when he was growing up.
@master5hake Actually the IVs had zoom in the forefoot and nothing in the heel outside of the phylon midsole itself, the Vs have the combo max air (heel) and zoom (forefoot). But i still think 155 is very affordable for a Nike Sig line and like he said a ID still comes out cheaper then a retail Lebron 10 or Kobe 8.
other than being high tops these have the same tech as the IVs. Both have airbags. These have a visible air unit, the IVs have an air zoom unit (which IMO is better since your foot is closer to the ground).
@master5hake I understand that, but its still relatively affordable in Nike's lineup for a sig shoe. The new model also utilizes more costly tech (ie airbag) so the price hike seems justified. Not to mention the Nike IDs are only $150.... props to Nike for keeping this shoe attainable and fresh.
