Today, Nike Basketball has officially unveiled the fifth signature sneaker for Kevin Durant, the KD V. The sneaker is a departure from its predessors in that it incorporates a mixed sole, using Zoom on the forefoot and Nike Air on the heel. Another departure is the cut, which has been raised with an upper that incorporates Hyperfuse. On the technical side, the shoe also has an “external heel counter to allow the foot to move while still providing support.”

Durant will lace up in the sneaker as he leads the OKC Thunder this season. It will be interesting to see if the Dwight Howard revamped Lakers will be too much for Durant who showed a championship spirit in last years NBA Western Conference Finals. Nevertheless, Durant’s pre-season perspective is focused, “championship drive takes an entire team, and the new KD V represents the roadmap I follow”.

The sneaker is references Durant’s roots in Washington DC…

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. 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.

The colorway is also inspired by KD’s old stomping grounds…

The Maryland state flag inspires the color combination on the shoe’s Bright Crimson colorway – with the flag’s red, yellow and black remixed in bright and light tones – a fitting tribute to Durant’s home state.

A Nike iD release date is scheduled for the 6th of November, which will be followed by a retail debut on the 8th of December.
