easy money kd 7 release 8 A Detailed Look at the Nike KD 7 Easy Money

The KD 7 started out by riffing off the popular “Weatherman” theme that Nike Basketball first introduced on the Nike Zoom KD IV. Rather than simply port over that colorway onto this latest of Nike KD models though, they have now expanded the theme across five different shoes with completely different colorways. The culmination of that set will come this September in the Nike KD 7 “Easy Money”. So what exactly does this shoe have to do with the weather? The Nike KD 7 “Easy Money” runs deep on the double meanings and connections.

With all the buzz surrounding the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low, it’s easy to overlook the engineered mesh counterpart and yet the Swoosh continues to give us some enticing offerings of the more affordable silhouette with a bevy of prints and patterns for late summer. Next week we’ll get an added vibrant dose of the Kobe 9 EM in this Bright Mango rendition, one that features an overlay of some exotic fauna to fawn over. And while Kobe’s 9th signature sneaker will be one defined more by what was seen off the court for the Black Mamba rather than the memories of what he did while wearing them, with releases like these it’s easy to see the Kobe line carrying on post-retirement. The Nike Kobe 9 EM “Bright Mango” will launch Thursday, August 28th at 8AM EDT, but know that you can always secure your pair on eBay.

Team USA has some hard cuts looming on their guard-heavy roster before the official start of the 2014 FIBA World Cup, but last night at Madison Square Garden both James Harden and Kyrie Irving proved themselves worthy of roster spots. Derrick Rose received a standing ovation despite never leaving his warm-ups as Coach K made the point guard a late scratch, but there was plenty to look forward to in terms on in game action, especially when glancing at what the players decided to lace up. We already got a look at Team USA’s sneakers during a practice session, and this time around the selections were just as enticing from DeMarcus Cousins sporting a pair of the Nike Zoom Soldier VIII  to the interesting ‘Phatman’ PE on Mason Plumlee’s Nike Hyperdunk 2014. Stick with us after the click for a full rundown courtesy of Gemini Keez and let us know which pair was your favorite in the comments.

There’s another Nike Zoom Soldier 8 pair coming up this weekend. They’re dipped in magnet grey and they’ll be officially releasing at spots like x on Saturday, August 23rd. The Nike LeBron release in question also has quite a bit of volt mixed in, which almost has us thinking “Dunkman” – although we can only assume that the next iteration of that theme won’t show up until the LeBron 12. Get a couple of extra angles for this Nike Zoom Soldier VIII creation with us below and keep it locked on Sneaker News for more upcoming releases.

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low pairs that we’ve seen so far have all had some sort of story or theme attached, whether it be the sense of pure innovation embedded in the HTM releases or the pop culture background of the “Michael Jackson” pair. Swerving around all of that as far as we can tell is the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low “University Red” shown here – although there was early talk of a Michael Jordan tribute version and we suppose this could fit that bill. Continue reading to get the best photos yet of this pair and remember that they’re releasing on September 13th, 2014.
