nike ZOOM KD 9
material: synthetix/textile

Kevin Durant just had to do it, didn't he? Even for a superstar it has to be unbearable, knowing your new signature shoe is ready to go. Like Nike adores to say themselves: Just Do It. That is what he did. And it almost paid off big-time. His Oklahoma City Thunder had the reigning champions, the Golden State Warriors, on the ropes and weren't able to finish them off. They blew a 3-1 lead, allowing the Dubs to advance into the NBA finals. But you couldn't possibly blame it on the shoes – they didn't put anyone down. If anything, they made the early lead in the series even possible at all. With the KD 9 Nike presents a sneaker superior to everything the KD 8 had to offer. Thanks to a re-imagined Nike Zoom Air cushioning the responsiveness reaches its modern day peak and enables a natural motion, providing an unique feel like never before. To cushion hard landings, the units are thicker in the heel and thinner in the forefoot area – enhancing control. While the on-court performance is second to none, the Nylon enhanced Flyknit upper makes sure your very own Kevin Durant signature shoe feels like it's taylor-made. Why you ask? Nylon prevents the Flyknit upper from stretching and therefore cautioniously protects it. A perfect fit perfectly fitting the game of basketball. Or a perfectly fitting game of basketball for a perfect fit? Whatever. But what does matter is the translucent rubber outsole: traction. Because you just can't get enough of it, can you? Explosive cuts, directional changes and even changes of speed. Too many questions were asked prior the release and the latest KD signature shoe had even more answers to offer. Although in the end, there is only one question that matters. Is the shoe worth it? You can bet on it.

Even though many superstars have withdrawn from their participation in Rio this year, Kevin Durant of course hasn't. He is like a kid in some way. A basketball nerd. Because all he wants to do, is to ball! And to maximize the fun he is about to have, the KD 9 'USA' will support him on his way to a gold medal. An elegant white upper combined with the famous colors of the United States are a treat for every sneaker head and baller. The red and blue accents go perfectly with the Flyknit upper. With Kevin Durant lurking and the rest of the Dream Team ready to strike, their opponents shouldn't even be dreaming about beating them. Maybe they should just wake up and apologize.

An Interview with Kevin Durant

Brand information: nike

When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.

Nike is the frontrunner in basketball

Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
