The early 2010s were a much simpler time in sneakers, when sneaker campouts were an opportune time to forms bonds and friendships with fellow sneakerheads on line, and basketball shoes were fit for courts and the clubs. It’s hard to pinpoint one singular shoe that defined that era, but Kevin Durant’s Nike KD 4 “Weatherman” is certainly among them. In the heyday of Nike’s over-reliance on storytelling (which we’re not really complaining about), Nike learned that Kevin Durant’s dream career (had he not been a 7-footer with the offensive package of all five positions) was to be a weatherman. So, they crafted an insane colorway inspired by the topographic maps and visuals typically seen on nightly newscasts.
Kyrie Irving’s signature shoes like to borrow from the past. We’ve seen it in various iterations of the Rayguns and the Concepts’ Lobsters, and that method surfaces once again with the Kyrie 7 “Weatherman”, seen here in this photo leaked by US11. It’s got the same green/yellow upper with a bright red and orange heat-map pattern on the heel – one that helped put the KD 4 on the map and cemented it as one of the greatest Nike Basketball shoes ever.
The forecast for the release date is cloudy, but expect a chance of a summer release for $130.
