Nike KD V – Dissected
Don’t you get the random urge to unbox your deadstock shoes and slice them up every which way possible? The answer is probably no. But one group of folks has been going through with their ‘dissected sneakers’ series for a while now, putting the Nike KD V ‘Christmas’ under the microscope for its latest feature and giving us a look at the innards of this $115 sneaker. A nice cross-section of the Max Air on the heel and fore-foot Zoom as well as the overall thickness of the padding that goes around the shoe is a rather interesting visual, so check out this step-by-step dissection of the KD V below and let us know if anything you see below surprises you about the KD V construction.
I'm a bit surprised that the forefoot zoom unit doesn't cover more surface area...seems like everyone's foot is shaped differently, so if you have long toes than your forefoot might miss the bag almost entirely. Boo.
