We just showed you the unnamed “Superhero” colorway of the Nike Hyperflight, but Nike’s got a trio lined up to match with the Big Three – with this ‘Lightning’ being the Kevin Durant version. It’s a bit funny for ‘Lightning’ to be the chosen graphic for Durant, who plays for the OKC Thunder, but Nike hasn’t really confirmed anything outright regarding these being a parallel metaphor to KD and the other two stars. These are indeed slated for a release this March 29th, so let us know if your psyched about the Hyperflight release or if these really aren’t on your radar.

Gotta see a better picture of those. I'm not a big fan of overly graphicized shoes, but those look like they got some potential. At any rate, it's nice to see Hyperflights come back.
@Sneeky .....You know these aren't actual Durant shoes right?
@Ay_YoAri Yeah, you're right. i'm new here.
The irony is, I've been collecting all AJ's here in Japan, UNCONTESTED, buying from a sneaker shop in Shinjuku, Tokyo district - known for advance selling Nike products before they even release there in the US.
Foam Galaxies, Doernberchers, Yeezy's, XI (Breds & Concords), Nerfs, Weathermans, X-mas, Easters, BHMs and Area 72's collections are literally being snubbed here because Japanese customers prefer New Balance and Asics Tiger over Nikes.
On my part, I start appreciating my purchased Nikes AFTER I see them on Sneakernews or Solecollector and much hyped is already been created.
The latest I purchased a month ago are the KDV Aunt Pearls - bought four pairs for my nephews. And they are yet to be released there in the States. I'm not complaining at all - it's just like I don't have any competition at all purchasing AJ retros & supposedly limited quantity Nikes. i'm no online seller either because we're not allowed to being in the service and holed up in a US Military Base here.
I collect AND wear them...not using my eyes feasting on them. That's my way of enjoying my Nike collections.
