We saw Kevin Durant debut his third signature shoe from Nike Basketball earlier this week in our Sneaker Watch coverage. Since KD has been playing at home this week, he’s been wearing the home colorway of the Nike Zoom KD III which will release in early January. This colorway will soon become Durant’s choice for road games with its Black base and Photo Blue detailing.
Following up last year’s Nike Zoom KD2, which was one of the best bang for the buck shoes in many accounts, the KD III will likely be the shoe of choice for versatile players. Of course we’ll see Kevin Durant wearing the shoe, and likely a handful of his teammates throughout the season but just as we’ve seen Amar’e Stoudemire in the KD2, don’t be surprised to see the KD III on some other famous feet from the League.
The Zoom Air in the forefoot, combined with a Phylon makes for a lightweight shoe that is designed to keep up with your every move. Whether you’re taking it to the hole, posting up inside or crashing the boards. A herringbone pattern on the solid rubber outsole provides traction and a combination of leather, synthetics, and Flywire technology might just be all that you need in a basketball shoe.
