Nike KD 13
The Nike KD 13 is NBA superstar Kevin Durant's 13th signature sneaker with Nike. First teased in February, the made-for-basketball silhouette debuted globally throughout April 2020.
Borrowing the Nike KD 12's innovation, Durant's latest model features full-length Zoom Airbag strobel directly stitched to the upper. Additional cushioning was added to the sneaker's forefoot via kidney-shaped modules. The Nike KD 13 maintains a mid-top height like its direct predecessor, but draws some inspiration from the Air Jordan 1. Elsewhere, nylon make up the bulk of the shoe's upper, with suede and other fabrics usually appearing around its base and collar. Profile Swooshes alternate in size and orientation, but both feature a rubberized component as they extend onto the midsole. As a nod to Durant's current number, “No. 7” text is branded on the tongue.
The Nike KD 13 is priced at $150 USD, with “Chill”, “Hype”, and other special editions going for a slightly-higher $160 USD.
