The Nike KD 9 goes tropical for its next colorway, the “Birds of Paradise” version that flies into retailers tomorrow. The tropical theme releasing during the Olympics in Brazil is certainly no coincidence, as we’re guessing Nike planned ahead for the fact that Kevin Durant would be helping lead Team USA while also showcasing his latest signature model on the court in Rio. The nature-minded theme of this KD 9 utilizes a bright jade green and black color palette to achieve the tropical feel, completed with hits of Volt throughout amplifying the vibrant look even further. Whether you’re yet to pick up a pair of the KD 9 or just want another colorway to add to your existing collection, you can pick up the “Birds of Paradise” look tomorrow at select Nike Basketball retailers globally.
