Kevin Durant is leading Team USA in scoring, and yet Coach K thinks that his superstar could be playing better by saying, “We obviously need him to be the Kevin Durant of Istanbul and London. We’re hoping the medal round brings that out.” Nike Basketball, on the other hand, is still planning on a Team USA Gold Medal, as the imprint has previewed their upcoming “Gold Medal” USA Pack for August 22nd featuring the KD 9, Kyrie 2, and LeBron Soldier 10. Today we get the best look yet at the Nike KD 9 Gold Medal.

Kevin Durant’s ninth signature model is his most technologically advanced yet thanks to a bolstered Flyknit woven upper, Dynamic Flywire support system, and a full-length Zoom cushioning for a comfortable and lightweight ride that’s as unique as any basketball performance model on the market today. The Nike KD 9 Gold Medal utilizes an ominous Obsidian upper to match Team USA’s road uniforms while Metallic Gold branding on the Swoosh and a ‘USA’ heel tab nods at the intentions of America’s dominant Olympic basketball program. Throw in University Red on the lining and a pristine icy outsole, and this could be the cleanest KD 9 pair to date. Team USA and Durant still have a lot of work to do in order to grab that Gold Medal during the elimination rounds ahead, but here’s to hoping that they pull things out.

The Nike KD 9 Gold Medal will be available at select shops on August 22nd for $150 USD. Be sure to check out a full view of the upcoming colorway below and head to our release dates page for more.
