The energy surrounding Kevin Durant’s hometown tribute via his Nike Zoom KD V is certainly building up since Nike officially unveiled the shoes two days ago. An interesting side-note to this ‘DMV’ pair is that the color may be indirectly inspired by ‘mumbo sauce’, a regional food condiment that DMV heads have come to accept as part of the location’s culture. More importantly, this on-feet look at the KD V provides us a great insight on just how the KD V will look on the streets, and you can clearly see that padded, diagonally-ribbed tongue and the Mag-inspired heel-cup stick out as the highlight feature of the shoe. Enjoy the on-feet shots below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the KD V chapter.

More shots of both December KD V joints below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more information.
