One year ago, Nike invited Sneaker News to experience the official launch event for the KD 6 at the Seat Pleasant Rec Center, situated at the heart of Kevin Durant’s hometown. After one successful year of sneaker releases, it was time to move forward to the new model, and earlier today, we were again part of the select media group to attend the official launch of the Nike KD 7. The special occasion took place at the Newseum in Washington D.C., with Kevin Durant, Nike Design Director Leo Chang, and host Ahmad Rashad, and during the half-hour block, we caught a first look at several new KD 7 colorways, the new “The Baddest” commercial, and much more.

Before we get into the exclusive looks at the upcoming KD 7 releases, the interviews with designer Leo Chang and with Kevin Durant, and other info about the sneakers, take a look at a first-hand recap of the event at the Newseum and stay tuned for more exclusive coverage of the official Nike KD 7 launch.

A Teenager Opens A Sneaker Pawn Shop in Harlem

sneaker pawn shop teenager 1 A Teenager Opens A Sneaker Pawn Shop in Harlem

Sneaker stores in NYC are a dime a dozen really, but its the niche consignment shops like Flight Club are what make NYC the uncontested hub for kicks. Adding to the menu of sneaker options is a new store called Sneaker Pawn, which was started by a Harlem-bred teenager named Chase Reed. The store isn’t quite the typical consignment store, as Reed has adopted a pawn-shop style of trade; Sneaker Pawn assesses a proper price for the sneaker based on the condition of a sneaker and pays the pawner the figure while giving the option to buy back the shoe at the same price with a $20 storage fee added on top. However, if another buyer comes in and makes an offer on the sneaker, the pawner is entitled to 80% of the profit, while the shop keeps 20%.  In a nutshell, Sneaker Pawn will either receive $20 or 20% of the profit for a sneaker. Your thoughts on this venture? Check out this article on the NYPost and be sure to check out Sneaker Pawn for yourself at Lenox and West 120th.
