NBA Feet: Weekend Recap – 11/2 – 11/4

nba feet november 5 2012 0 NBA Feet: Weekend Recap   11/2   11/4

A heat-filled weekend of NBA Feet in the form of Air Jordans, Foamposites, LeBrons, and others, so let’s get right to it! Rajon Rondo broke necks with Foamposites again with the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Stealth’, and in the Barclay’s Center debut, Joe Johnson and Demar DeRozan faced off with the Bred IV and Raging Bull V, respectively. In two games, LeBron rocked the ‘Away’ LeBron X and the ‘Home’ Floridians colorway, while other LeBrons made in on court, like George Hill’s LeBron 9 and DeMarcus Cousins’ strap-less Soldier 6. Perhaps the best sighting was Jared Jeffries’ Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’, which matched the Blazers uniforms perfectly! More of NBA Feet from the weekend is just below, so take a look and point out your favorite!

Nike KD V “Blackout”

October 30th, 2012 by | 7 comments

nike kd v blackout Nike KD V Blackout

Kevin Durant enters the 2012-13 NBA season with a chance to join an elite club of players who’ve won four scoring titles, and with four in a row, he will stand alone with Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain (who racked up seven and six consecutive, respectively).  That’s some impressive company, and its a feat made all the more likely now that Durant and Russell Westbrook will take on more of the scoring load without close friend and Olympic teammate James Harden.  KD was “Wow”ed and understandably saddened by the Harden trade, and this new ‘Blackout’ Nike KD V sample has an accordingly somber tone.  The blackout look is an annual staple for most Nike Basketball styles and looks particularly sharp here with the crisp, clear outsole, but are they the best Zoom KD 5s we’ve seen to date?  Let us know after you’ve seen more below and stick with Sneaker News for the release date.

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 Lightning Quickness”

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!

kevin durant in nike zoom kd v nba 2k13 1 Kevin Durant in Nike Zoom KD V in NBA 2K13 Promo

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.
