Kevin Durant, aka KD and ‘Durantula’, is the youngest of the three Nike Basketball signature athletes. His Zoom KD signature line is designed by Nike designer Leo Chang; the Zoom KD is most recognized for its low price-point – a product detail specified by Kevin himself. Kevin is currently the star player of the Oklahoma City Thunder, and has won three consecutive NBA Scoring Titles from 2010 to 2012.

kevin durant kd v preseason NBA Feet: Kevin Durant   Nike Zoom KD V Away

The first week of pre-season NBA games is upon us, and already we’re getting a look at a number of new faces in new places. One of the most talked about ‘new faces’ is none other than Jeremy Lin, who ended up with the Houston Rockets as a result of the tense bidding war  against the Knicks, and while Linsanity didn’t wear any spectacular kicks to catch our attention, our eyes were glued to Kevin Durant, who wore the Nike Zoom KD V i the ‘Away’ colorway. While more KD IV releases are still on deck to release, it looks like Durant himself is ready to move onto Chapter V, which is set for a release on December 8th. More of KD below!

nike zoom hyperflight kevin durant 1 Nike Zoom Hyperflight Kevin Durant Lightning Quickness

We just showed you the LeBron and the Kobe Hyperflights – now check out Kevin Durant’s take. The young 23-year-old has managed to build himself quite a following thanks to his unparalleled on-court play and likable personality, but Nike focuses on ‘Lightning Quickness’ to spin the KD story into a heroic tale. There’s no better fit for KD, who, thanks to his speed and size, is pretty much impossible to guard man-up, and his Hyperflights are dictated by strikes of lightning bolts that appear and disappear in split-seconds. The Nike Zoom Hyperflight ‘Kevin Durant Lightning Quickness’ is a Summer 2013 release like its LeBron and Kobe counterparts, so examine them below and stay tuned for one more Hyperflight banger in just a short few minutes!

Sneaker News served up a first look at the Nike Zoom KD V when Kevin Durant was spotted wearing the upcoming shoes during a commercial shoot for the NBA 2K13 video game franchise. It looks like those who purchase a copy of the award-winning 2K13 will get a look at the shoes as well; in the promotional photography used as a backdrop for the NBA 2K13 campaign, Kevin Durant is seen wearing the yet-to-release KD V in the ‘Away’ Thunder colorway. Might as well note cover-mate Derrick Rose, who is wearing the adidas Rose 3, and Blake Griffin in the Lunar Hyperdunk+, which leads us to believe that NBA 2K13 will also have a nice emphasis on the kicks as well as on the realistic gameplay. NBA 2K13 hits stores on October 3rd, but catch a preview of KD in the kicks here!

Kevin Durant finishes off the signature athlete tour for Nike Basketball as he visits China for even more basketball-focused events and fun for his fans around the globe. During one of the Q&A sessions, KD was seen with the upcoming ‘Gold Medal’ colorway of the Nike Zoom KD IV, a shoe that has yet to release in the States. During recent interviews with U.S. media outlets, Durant has stated that he’s just now entering his prime, which signifies that he recognizes a potential for improvement (quite scary considering he’s not yet 24 years of age)! With a Gold Medal under his belt, he’ll be vying the Larry O’Brien Gold come next June, but in the meantime, we’ll keep you updated with release info on these golden KDs.

Kevin Durant spend some free time in New York City this week after checking “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” off his list of things to do, but it looks like he’s still in that Team USA state of mind as he was spotted in the streets in Nike x USA gear. Wearing a Nike Running half-zip top and Volt colorway of the Nike Flyknit Trainer+, Durant looks like he could very well be in Olympic mode, but instead he’s taking a much needed vacation before he heads over to China to tour around the country and offer up some basketball clinics to the youth. A full shot of KD in the Flyknits below, so take a look and let us know what you think.

coolrain nike 21 Coolrainz x Nike Relive The Dream Figurines

All of yesterday’s Olympic excitement was capped off by a nice recap of a Dream Team Showcase at a Nike Basketball location in South Korea. If you managed to flip through the gallery of images, you would’ve spotted some interesting figurines modeled after Nike Basketball’s Big Three – Kobe, LeBron, and KD. Turns out it was a Nike-commissioned project, in which they tapped the skills of South Korean toy-maker Coolrainz (they’ve worked together before); a total of six models were made (two of each player), with one in complete Team USA and sig shoe gear and another all-black version with white facial hair and Nike Sportswear apparel. A detailed gallery of the figurines are just below, so take a look and let us know what you think!

Kevin Durant Debuts Nike Zoom KD V

August 12th, 2012 by | 26 comments

kevin durant debuts nike zoom kd v 1 Kevin Durant Debuts Nike Zoom KD V

As we wrap up the current cycle of signature shoes and the last of the remaining releases hit stores, we lay out a fresh new doormat and welcome in the next installments of LeBron, Kobe, KD, CP3, Melo, and Fly Wade for the upcoming 2012-2013 NBA Season. Yesterday, we were given a nice helping of fresh new kicks as LeBron James debuted his LeBron X during Sunday morning’s Gold Medal game (as did Chris Paul his CP3.VI), but Kevin Durant actually had his fellow Gold Medalists beat by about a month; Durant participated in a commercial shoot for NBA 2K13 while wearing the NBA 2K13, and although the full commercial won’t go on air until later on, we caught some clear viewings of the Nike Zoom KD V that will be featured in that upcoming ad.

After catching a glimpse of the KD V in catalog image form earlier this year, this first real-world view of the V reveals some interesting details; first off, the Adaptive Fit strap has been removed in favor of a unique boot-like construction using a non-traditional tongue, the pronounced heel-counter should serve as an added stability feature for KD (who likes shoes tight-fitting), and the high-cut tongue and lower heel adds some visual flair in a manner similar to the Lunar Hyperdunk+ and LeBron 9. We’ll keep you updated on the Zoom KD V as Nike prepares for the official unveiling later this year, but check out the images below and let us know what you think of the next step in Durant’s growing Nike saga below!
