Russell Westbrook is busy putting up 50 point triple-doubles while his team still loses, so there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind just how much the Oklahoma City Thunder miss Kevin Durant. Meanwhile, KD is resting through the first round to avoid re-agitating a previous injury while his Golden State Warriors teammates handle the little things, like beating the Portland Trail Blazers by 30 points so that Kevin can be ready to go by the NBA Finals. Nike Basketball continues to roll out brand new colorways of the KD 9 Elite, a shoe that’s a major upgrade from the base model and yet somehow retains that $150 price point. Fans of Flyknit know just how important Multi-Color is to the overall colorway atmosphere, and the Nike KD 9 Elite Multi-Color sure is a beauty. That upgraded slip-on upper features a black heel and ankle collar with premium leather accents on the tongue tag. A Volt Zoom midsole matches the overall vibrancy of the rainbow array found on the Flyknit base. Hopefully we get to see KD rock this pair next round. Are you a fan of the latest KD 9 Elite Multi-Color take? Check out more detailed shots below and grab your pair on 4/28.
