When Kevin Durant makes his return to the NBA, not only will he suit up for the Brooklyn Nets, but he will wear his newest signature shoe, the Nike KD 13.
Images have finally leaked of the first colorway of the KD 13 which has a similar build to his previous model, the KD 12. Looking closer they feature a full length Zoom Air cushioning along with a new overlay that connects to the eyelets. In addition we have a grid nylon upper along with a large Swoosh that also extends across the midsole. The first color option shown comes in Black, White, Grey and a hint of Blue but you can expect more soon.
Not only is the base color option of Black and White releasing, but coming soon is the ‘Planet of Hoops’, ‘Hype’, ‘Chill’, ‘Home Team’ and ‘Bred’. The model utilizes a double stacked Air Zoom setup and a full length Air Zoom cushioning unit.
“The intent behind a Zoom Bag is similar to that of a mechanical spring underfoot,” says Ross Klein, Senior Creative Director for Nike Basketball. “The essence of a spring is to return the amount of energy you put into it. In the KD13, we’re doubling the spring in the form of the double-stacked forefoot Zoom, allowing you more travel in the system and more energy back.”
