New color scheme and release date set for Kevin Durant’s signature shoe
The KD V’s have been unveiled, with a unique style paying respect to his home state.
In recent preseason games, Durant has been playing in the court-ready Oklahoma City versions of the Nike Zoom KD V (seen here). But for the first time, clear pictures have surfaced of the ‘DMV’ version, paying tribute to the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area.
The crimson-colored portion of the shoe (seen above) is inspired by the Maryland flag. And in the video below (which takes a brief inside look at the sneaker’s development process) Durant says, “basketball is only going to last for so long, but family will last forever.”
Both versions of the shoe (in Thunder or Maryland colors) hits retailers on December 8th, costing $115 (the first time Durant’s signature shoe has been more than $100).
“The shoe’s hidden story comes from five players united on the court, five sides of a pentagon – a Washington D.C. landmark, five corners of a star, and Durant’s fifth Nike signature shoe,” NIKE said in a press release. “This tribute to five is brought to life on the shoe’s outsole pattern, midsole texture, tongue quilting with V’s, and heel counter details.”
