Although Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant haven’t played a full NBA season together, the Brooklyn Nets guard has expressed how connected to the 6′10″ forward he feels, having gone as far as saying he was Durant in a past life. On the footwear front, the Nike KD 14‘s next ensemble has traveled back to 2014 as it’s inspired by Irving’s first-ever signature sneaker: the Nike Kyrie 1 “Dream”.
Akin to its muse, the forthcoming pair primarily indulges in a black tone. Its sporadically-covered mesh base boasts a bevy of hues and patterns informed by the honor and privilege Irving felt upon joining the prestigious Nike Basketball family at 22 years old. Durant’s take displays more of the brightly-colored pattern across the heel than his current teammate’s shoe, but forgoes any gradient profile swooshes. Instead, the 14th Nike KD proposition features a scarlet-dipped lockdown strap, which matches the outsole perfectly.
