Kevin Durant’s Nike KD 17 “USA” Gets Covered In Safari Patterns

With the lulls of the off-season now here, die-hard basketball fans know international basketball is a god send in the summer, especially the Olympics. As always, many of the superstars who will be lacing ’em up in Paris will release commemorative colorways to capitalize on the international stage. Kevin Durant is the one of the first to get in on the action with the Nike KD 17 “USA.”

The palette here really speaks for itself. A pure white foundation is matched by red & white accents throughout the shoe, coming clearest into focus on the TPU Air Max Plus waves, borrowing another motif from that shoe with the top to bottom gradient there. It’s also a central section for its graphic, donning the dotted safari print dominant throughout Nike’s Paris-centric slate; the SB Dunk Low “Olympic,” PS8 “Olympic” and GT Jump 2 “Olympic” among the many shoes that sport the same pattern. The measured application of it means that this reads as a pretty staid colorway at first glance, an easily worn edition that contrasts the more expressive looks of pairs like the KD 17 “Producer Pack.”

The Nike KD 17 “USA” is expected to land in July, sometime around the Opening Ceremony in Paris. Be ready for a $150 retail price across extended men’s sizing once this pair arrives.
