Last week, Nike officially unveiled the Nike KD 7 with a live webcast being broadcast to all inquiring minds. The response to the sneaker was immediately positive, and with five colorways already being unveiled with full release info, this sneaker is definitely poised to be the season of KD. While the USA colorway released last week, the first high-energy offering is this “35k Degrees” colorway, anchored by a vibrant Bright Mango and accented with Grey and Volt around the shoe. Before the sneakers officially hit stores, let’s take a closer look at the fine details of the new KD 7 silhouette.
The are a number of significant advancements made to the KD 7 that makes the shoe unlike any of its predecessors. You won’t see Hyperfuse material on here, but instead a combination of breathable mesh and Hyperposite for one of the most unique upper constructions we’ve seen from Nike. Various other elements on this breakthrough design, like visible Zoom, an articulated midfoot shank, and Dynamic Flywire, make the seventh KD signature model a big player for the Summer-time basketball scene.
