Kevin Durant’s status as the baddest apparently hasn’t affected this upcoming KD 7 pair. Many had assumed that that nickname was tied into the supposed “Bad Apple” nickname for this sneaker, but that all changed at the last minute when Nike Basketball officially christened them as the “Good Apples”. Then again, it’s not the name that really matters here, but the colors and textures used to create this newest colorway. Continue reading to see how it’s shaped up and watch for the Nike KD 7 “Good Apples” to release this weekend at spots like Sneaker Politics.

Nike Zoom Ultraflight “Supersonics Home” PE for Gary Payton

Nike Basketball’s dominance today is proclaimed with three of the biggest names in basketball on their roster in LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant. Keeping up with the Swoosh in this category is, as you’d imagine, a difficult task, but back in the early 2000s, Nike’s reign wasn’t as clear-cut. That doesn’t mean that the sneakers they were doling out weren’t as technologically advanced at the time, or rooted in outlandish inspirations. For 2003′s Nike Zoom Ultraflight, designers Aaron Cooper and Eric Avar teamed up to create a near-sequel to the Hyperflight, adding a premium leather upper and a translucent shell to showcase the inner-workings. Today we get a view of a rare PE for noneother than Gary Payton. While he wasn’t wearing his Glove signature towards the end of his tenure in Seattle, he was gifted this Ultraflight in a mean green and yellow before being traded off to Milwaukee. What do you think? Hit the click for more images and grab the pair from foamkicks on eBay.

The Nike Kobe 9 EM “Dusty Cactus” is headed to retailers this Friday, October 3rd, 2014. The clean Dusty Cactus base might not cut it when compared to the number of pairs we’ve seen don prints and patterns throughout the summer, so the Swoosh is relying strictly on the originality of the hue and a few added features to entice you to start this weekend. For starters, there’s that unique tongue patch that skips over the Kobe shozoku logo in lieu of an interesting championship count reminiscent of vintage boxing posters with a Black Mamba call out. Add in some hints of red on the flyknit and lining and this pair is an unexpected albiet welcomed addition to the Kobe lineage. Check out more images of the latest Kobe release and let us know if you’re feeling this pair by penning your thoughts in the comments section.

The Nike Penny retro slate just got a little deeper as his Nike Zoom Flight ’96 is set to return later this year. The pair is a reminder of how dominant 1996 was for the Swoosh’s basketball imprint (think of another Jumpman silhouette that featured a translucent outsole with brief hints of carbon fiber in the Air Jordan 11). The first release of the retro will be in the Carbon Fiber Pack, one that features two sneakers with the material spread across the heel to the midsole. What do you think of the Black/White variety? Hit the click for a full view and stay tuned for a release date in the near future right here on Sneaker News.

So it turns out that the KD 7 “Bad Apple” is actually officially nicknamed the “Good Apples”. What’s the scoop here as far as the fruity title? Kevin Durant explains in the video below that apple picking is a metaphor for his shot selection – only take the good ones and ignore the rotten ones. The sneakers are just a couple days away from their official release, so we’ll have to whether that turns out to be enough time to for people to pick up on the new name or stick with the old one. Get more on this Nike KD 7 below and remember that there should be some pairs now on eBay.

Nike KD 7 “Away”

The KD 7 had to eventually show up with some Oklahoma City Thunder flavor attached. In modern times, those team style colorways actually end up in the minority – sneaker companies are compelled to pump out so many storyline releases that those quickly eclipse the more standard like this “Away”. No release info on them just yet, but we’d be surprised if they didn’t show up in time for the NBA season so that Durant fans can enjoy them at the same time he does. Get a better peek at the Nike KD 7 “Away” below and tell us in the comments if you’re feeling them.
