Coming Soon: Nike KD VII AS

The Brooklyn Bridge was an architectural marvel when it was completed in 1883. Its steel-wire suspension system was both functionally forward-looking and visually arresting. The KD 7, Durant’s seventh signature shoe, embodies a similar hybridization with its Hyperposite heel and responsive Zoom Air cushioning. It is light and tight, performance optimized in a clean aesthetic for stability and flexibility.

Coming Soon: Nike Basketball 2014 All-Star “NOLA Gumbo League” Collection

For All-Star Weekend, Nike Basketball salutes the unique flavor of New Orleans with the 2014 “NOLA Gumbo League” Collection, featuring the Lebron 11, KD VI, Lil Penny Posite, and Air Up ’14. The Lebron XI, dubbed the “Gator King,” sees graphic textures throughout the shoe inspired by gators, often a symbol of protection in New Orleans culture. Invisible to the naked eye, hand-drawn patterns come to life as the Hyperposite bucket of the shoe glows in the dark. Following this up is the KD VI “Illusion” showcases hand-drawn patterns on the upper emulating Durant’s fluidity on the court. A glow-in-the-dark outsole also represents the spark of KD’s game. Contrasting the glow in the dark look, the Lil Penny Posite features black posite panelling and red accenting and a glow in the dark outsole. Other accenting details include a voodoo print on the panelling, featuring lobster engravings. Rounding out the NOLA themed Nike basketball collection is the Nike Air Up ’14, resembling fresh-out-of-the-pot crawdads with a crustacean-red upper complete with water droplets and a steamy graphic. Be on the lookout for this collection coming soon to Wish.

The Nike NSW Lifestyle segment takes a swing at remixing two of Nike’s most popular basketball models: the KD VI and the Lebron X.
