20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Zoom KD IV (2011)

zoom kd iv 2011 bball 0 20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Zoom KD IV (2011)

Nike Basketball’s sensational trio of signature athletes has to get some recognition as part of its 20 Year Retrospective, right? Kevin Durant’s meteoric rise to superstardom is all substance and no filler – an organic humility that designer Leo Chang transferred over to the Nike Zoom KD IV; Chang describes the design of of the KD IV as a “shoe that’s stripped down to his essence – nothing less, nothing more”, so as he heard Durant’s demands of a shoe that’s “light and tight”, Adaptive Fit was created to the lower-cut build, allowing KD to adjust the tightness to his own liking and essentially making the KD IV an all-positions, all-skill shoe. The details in the shoe are worth noting as well, as the many ‘easter eggs’ carved into the design pay tribute to some special figures in KD’s life. More of the KD IV below, so stay tuned for the next and final installment of Nike Basketball: 1992-2012!

gold medal nike zoom kd iv Gold Medal Nike Zoom KD IV

If you’ve been watching Team USA do their thing out on the hardwood in the 2012 Olympics at all recently you’ve probably gotten the sense of how much of a favorite they are for the gold medal this summer. Even the announcers, doing their best to be PC about it and not come right out and say what we’re all thinking, slip up sometimes and mention how likely it is that our boys will be grabbing the gold. In the event that that does happen Nike Basketball has of course crafted a special set of sneakers to pay tribute, with Kevin Durant’s Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Gold Medal’ pictured in a few new angles here. Click through with us to get a better look at the regally shiny sneaker and keep in mind that this colorway will be hitting shelves August 18th. Photos: gallery2

Nike Zoom KD IV “USA” – Release Reminder

July 27th, 2012 by | 1 comment

kd iv usa reminder 1 Nike Zoom KD IV USA   Release Reminder

Remember that sick NBA commercial that featured Kevin Durant’s life-time progress in basketball, where he removes layer upon layer of the basketball jerseys he wore from beginning to end? It’s time for an update because as the 2012 Olympics officially begin today, Durant will have added a Team USA Olympic jersey to his already-impressive stash of basketball banners. KD will join forces with fellow NBA stars (and two of his teammates) to take on the world, and he’ll do so wearing the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘USA’, which is set for a release at Nike Basketball retailers tomorrow. Like almost every other KD IV release, these are expected to go fast, so if you miss out, there’s always a shot at a pair from hawaiiannufsaid on eBay.

USA Basketball has one more tune-up before the Olympics get underway, a finale against host Spain to wrap up the World Basketball Festival‘s Barcelona leg.  Kevin Durant led the way with 27 points with Kobe and King James adding 18 and 15, respectively, and each of Nike Basketball’s big three rocked new patriotic pairs courtesy of the Swoosh’s online dream catcher.  The Nike Zoom KD IV iD is united with the Zoom Kobe VII and LeBron’s Lunar Hyperdunk+ in its use of a white upper, red laces and blue Swoosh/sole combo, and all three of them can be used as a base for your own customization experiments on NIKEiD.  Have a look at the trio below so you can get an idea for which one you’ll want to start with and stick with Sneaker News for more USA Olympic Nikes.

Nike Zoom KD IV “Scoring Title” – Release Reminder

July 20th, 2012 by | 4 comments

nike zoom kd iv scoring title reminder Nike Zoom KD IV Scoring Title   Release Reminder

It’s safe to say that the 2012 year has been one of Kevin Durant’s best of his life. A third-straight scoring title was followed by a trip to the NBA Finals (still an admirable accomplishment despite coming up short) and an invitation to represent Team USA in the upcoming 2012 Olympics. With that said, there are still a few KD IV bangers awaiting us (next week’s USA and the sick Golden joints), but don’t forget about the Scoring Title edition, slated to hit stores tomorrow. We hope you’ve got your RSVPs in check, but if not, these will be available at select Nike Basketball retailers and should fly off the shelves as quickly as Durant explodes for a dunk. Can’t wait around? Cop one of the available pairs on eBay.

After a bit of a wait Kevin Durant’s signature the Nike Zoom KD IV sneaker will indeed be joining the likes of the Nike LeBron 9 Low and the Nike Zoom Kobe VII as far as being outfitting in the proper patriotic look. Durant himself is perhaps a bit more familiar with the red, white, and blue than his Nike Basketball partners, hailing from PG county just a stones throw from Washington DC proper (check out his recent homecoming at the legendary Barry Farm court). Click through with us for the latest look at Durant’s Olympic pair that will be available to us common folk come July 28th and let us know in the comments below if you’re planning on on picking up a pair.

Nike Zoom KD IV “Gold Medal” – Release Date

nike zoom kd iv gold medal release date 1 Nike Zoom KD IV Gold Medal   Release Date

LeBron James set the pace in USA Basketball’s victory over Brazil in Washington Monday night, but hometown hero Kevin Durant already showed his leadership with a long-term vision for the 2012 Olympic Games.  KD’s hungry for hardware after coming up short against LeBron’s heat in June’s Finals, and a victory in London would grant Durant a perfect accessory to match the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Gold Medal’.  This shimmering metallic Zoom KD 4 is expected on store shelves less than a week after the championship game, Saturday August 18th (the same date as a certain other ‘Gold Medal’ release).  It remains to be seen if House of Hoops will claim exclusive bragging rights, but Sneaker News will keep you posted with any updates and you can see some new photos below in the meantime.  Photo: coreyatou on NT
