Nike KD VII (7) “Easy Money”
Inventor and statesman Ben Franklin used a metal key and a kite to prove that lightning was really a stream of electrified air. Franklin’s famous stormy kite experiment in June 1752 radically changed general understanding of the power of lightning and electricity. As an ode to Franklin’s fascination with weather and his prominence on the U.S. $100 bill, the Easy Money colorway features green hues and graphics from the Benjamin bill – a tribute to KD’s nickname, Easy Money. Launch: Sept. 10.
