Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Nerf’ Customs By Mache

nike zoom kobe vii nerf Nike Zoom Kobe VII Nerf Customs By Mache

His Nike LeBron 9 ‘Nerf’ Customs closed out the year in custom kicks in the perfect way, but it appears that Mache has all the intentions to serve as the sturdy bookends for 2012. Check out his Nike Zoom Kobe VII done up in the same motif of the popular December release of the Nike Zoom KD IV; using the already loud and spectacular ‘Leopard/Christmas’ as the base, Mache colorizes the shoe the match perfectly with the blocking of the KD IV while skillfully adding the Nerf-ish details like the speckling on the outsole as well as the black/grey splash gradient on the ankle collar and tongue. Unfortunately, this will be Mache’s last ‘Nerf’ custom, so check out the quick shots of the Nerfed out process below and let us know which of the three (original KD version and the two customs) you enjoy best. via PaintOrThread.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Nerf’ Customs by Mache

December 19th, 2011 by | 50 comments

nike lebron 9 nerf custom by mache 1 Nike LeBron 9 Nerf Customs by Mache

We live in an era when colorway-swapping customs are as popular as remixed hit singles, and the latest little ditty is one of the more impressive we’ve seen applied to the Nike LeBron 9.  Patterned after the‘Nerf’ Zoom KD IV that hit limited retail locations last week, this Mache Custom Kicks effort does a great job of appropriating the splatter print on the KD IV’s strap, applying it to the whole ankle area.  The rest of the shoe is spot-on when it comes to blocking, except that the Max Air cushion might have been neon green in a perfect world.  We’ve yet to see a ‘Dunkman’ LeBron 9 that might easily accommodate that kind of thing, but already we know to expect to see that signature palette replicated on another hot release coming up soon; perhaps a Zoom KD IV?  Click through to see this ‘Nerf’ LeBron 9 custom close-up, and let us know where they rank against the other color copies we’ve seen of late.

Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ – Release Reminder

December 16th, 2011 by | 17 comments

nike zoom kd iv nerf rr Nike Zoom KD IV Nerf   Release Reminder

While ‘Nerf’ certainly strikes child-like memories, don’t expect the release of the Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ to be a walk in the park. Last weekend’s release of the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Weatherman’ proved that only those who were willing to weather the late-night wind-chill would be rewarded with a pair of the most colorful Zoom KDs to date, but the Nerf might be a bit more tense because it appears that they will be more limited in number. Only three NikeTown locations and only eight Foot Locker House of Hoops locations will have them in stock, as well as one retailer in Chicago and another in Hyattsville. We expect people to be camping out for these as we speak, so get out there and do your best to cop one of the best sneakers of 2011. Good luck!

Go long! Well, not too long. According to Kevin Durant himself, the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ is scheduled for an official release on December 17th, 2011, one week before the Christmas Holiday weekend. The ‘Nerf’ colorway is undoubtedly the most colorful of the entire Zoom KD history, but is it the best KD of all time? It certainly has garnered the most attention thanks to the dope packaging, high-energy colorway, and general holy-crap-that’s-awesome concept. Sneaker News provided you detailed shots of the Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ not long ago, so be sure to take a look again if you need a thorough look, and let us know in the comments how badly you want these!

Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ – Detailed Look

November 22nd, 2011 by | 30 comments

nike zoom kd iv nerf gallery 24 Nike Zoom KD IV Nerf   Detailed Look

Kevin Durant is undoubtedly the most versatile player in the NBA. His ability to play multiple positions on the court is mirrored by the all-new Adaptive Fit system, which permits the Zoom-cushioned Nike Zoom KD IV to be a sneaker for players of all positions. Kevin Durant’s game is that of natural leadership and carrying the bulk of the load (two straight scoring titles and delving further into the NBA Playoffs every sesason is proof of that), but we’d like to remind you that Durant’s got a playful side about him – he’s just 22 years old! He’s active on Twitter, meaning he’s accessible to the masses, and he’s got no issues with donning gaudy chains and tribal gear as one of the original Nike ‘Hyperizers’ – even his Zoom KD III was partly designed after his love of video games.

And so, with the Nike Zoom KD IV scheduled for a wide release this December 3rd, Nike has teamed up with Hasbro to create a special pair of the Nike Zoom KD IV inspired by one of the generation-defining toys in this era – Nerf. The spongy toys that ran rampantly throughout the 1990′s returns alongside the Zoom KD IV, colored up in a high-energy assortment of neon tones and confetti-like detailing and packaged with a spongy Nerf mini-basketball with the box folding into a functional backboard and hoop. On the tongue you’ll see the classic Nerf logo as well as KD35 in the similar typefont for even more of a playful vibe. We’ve got a detailed look at the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ below, so check ‘em out and stick with Sneaker News for more updates and release info for undoubtedly the most exciting Nike Zoom KD release yet.
