The Next Step: KD9

KD9

Kevin Durant is the hottest name on the NBA free agency market, and for good reason. He’s a 6-foot-10 scoring machine with a versatile skill set that perfectly showcases the progressive style of play that NBA fans have come to expect.

Durant’s game is at the forefront of basketball’s evolution. His latest signature sneaker, the Nike Air Zoom KD9, is designed with that in mind. The KD9 sneaker represents the mirrored evolution of basketball footwear.

Because of his versatility, Durant covers a lot of ground. He runs roughly four miles a game, adding up to approximately 15 marathons in a season. The KD9 is built to withstand that heavy workload, offering comfort, support, and responsiveness with the most advanced Nike Flyknit and Zoom Air technologies yet, meticulously modified to exact basketball specifications.
KD9The shoe’s Flyknit upper features a distinctive honeycomb structure engineered for the lateral movements and quick cuts basketball demands. The material ensures lightweight flexibility and efficiency, without compromising on strength. The shoe also debuts a new Zoom Air unit after more than three years of advanced testing. It provides maximum impact-protection while increasing the bouncy feel that athletes love.

The KD9 was constructed to reflect the progression of today’s fast-paced, up-and-down game. The advanced technology equipped in the shoe was created for the new generation of basketball players, who play faster than ever. It allows an All-NBA caliber player like Durant to be at his best, but it’s also perfect for athletes of any age who aspire to be like Durant.

If the KD9’s functionality and performance-driven engineering haven’t sealed the deal yet, maybe the sleek design will. The Flyknit look has become incredibly popular, and the KD9 features vibrant, eye-grabbing color combos that will make your kicks pop.

If you want to play at your best, you have to look and feel your best. The KD9 ensures a sleek style to keep you looking good and all the newest technology to keep you feeling good.

The game is evolving. The shoe is evolving. Are you?
