One of the discussed topics during our interview with Nike Basketball designer Leo Chang was the creation of the “Superhero” Collection of the shoes. He pointed out that the idea was processed long before the Elite and that with Kobe, LeBron, and KD already owning that superhuman persona, the concept of the Pack sorta fell into place. It’s definitely good to see the KD get included in this year’s set, with the drastic low-cut stance and the sick midsole being the takeaway components of the design, and the Blue/Volt colorway certainly brings in that Superhero character that Durant effortlessly embodies. The Nike KD V Elite “Superhero” is ready to to release at stores during the release date on Saturday, April 27th, so with confirmed spots like Oneness getting their stock in now in anticipation of the drop, let us know if this revamped Nike KD V is a must-have for you.
