Kevin Durant‘s signature footwear line is set to receive quite the upgrade from Nike Basketball with the introduction of the Nike KD 5.
With a silhouette clearly inspired by that of past Hyperdunk releases, the Leo Chang-designed silhouette once again features a Hyperfuse upper, this time coupled with an integrated stretch lacing system. The midsole uses injected Phylon construction with an integrated heel counter for a lockdown fit while the kicks now incorporate Max Air cushioning in the heel alongside Zoom in the forefoot for a feel far superior to that of past KD sneakers. To go along with all of the performance upgrades, the Nike KD 5 will be the first shoe in the KD line to break the $100 MSRP mark, jumping from the Zoom KD IV’s $95 to $115.
While all 10 of the colorways seen here are slated for a Spring 2013 release, expect the Nike KD 5 to debut this Fall with the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season.
