With Kevin Durant as part of Team USA Basketball for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Nike is releasing the special Nike KD 9 ?USA? colorway which he will wear during the competition.
After the debut of Nike KD 9 with the inaugural ?Pre-Heat? colorway last week, the Nike KD 9 ?USA? will hit select Nike retailers this weekend on July 1. Priced at $150, the men?s sizing of the all new sneakers is available via SNKRS app while kid?s sizing is available on Nike.com.
The Nike KD 9 USA also dubbed as KD 9 Premier features a clean crisp white upper, comprised of breathable mesh around the heel and game-changing flyknit through the midfoot and forefoot. Vivid pops of red and blue add stark contrast, as university red lands on the swoosh and tongue tab, and race blue completes the USA theme by appearing on the flywire, heel pull tab and the KD branding on the heel. The shoe is finished off with white midsole and outsole with red hints on the Zoom Air cushioning system.
This highly anticipated edition will have an extravagant debut this weekend in New York, according to Nike. ?Kevin Durant is prepared to dominate on the world?s stage this summer,? Nike said. ?Debuting with a movie-style world premiere in NYC, Durant?s new Nike Zoom KD 9 arrives in a patriotic red, white and blue colorway.?
Meanwhile, Zoom KD 9 will see another Black/White Oreo colorway of the sneakers released which Nike has dubbed as Mic-Drop. This edition will feature a black-based upper part combined with white hints on the toe area, Nike swoosh logos on the side panel, KD logo on the heel area and Durant’s signature on the insole.The Nike Zoom KD 9 “Mic Drop” was finished off with an all-black midsole and outsole.
According to Nike, this edition was inspired by Durant’s love for music. “It’s no secret Kevin Durant has a deep love for music. He has made music of his own both on and off the hardwood. The new KD 9 celebrates KD’s mic drop moments,” the company noted. KD 9 Orea drops later on July 9 for $150.
