Nike Basketball launched its Inside Access series earlier this month (a concept with which they’d first experimented during the Olympic summer) with a look at some of the pillars of the Swoosh roundball division from the Blazer and Air Force 1 up through the contemporary Lunar Hyperdunk. The follow-up also looks closely at one of the division’s modern foundations, and though the ‘inside’ part focuses on the new Nike KD V, there are plenty of other Kevin Durant-related items within. It is the Nike KD Hoops Elite Ball Backpack after all, a do-it-all tote that reflects Durant’s humble approach as a student of the game while allowing him quick access to all the requirements like headphones, iPad and extra kicks. The black, Photo Blue and Total Orange debut edition arrives next month with an Ice Blue sequel in January to be rounded out by a Hyper Blue third come April. Click through for a video preview as well as more photos, and let us know where Durant’s backpack ranks in the history of Nike bags.
