After a year that at least proved that KD was not scared to assert himself as a leader and an offensive threath, a year that ultimately brought KD the Rookie of the Year Award, Kevin Durant is set to receive his first signature sneaker, the Nike KD1. Nike and Kevin Durant recently held an event in Taiwan to officially preview his upcoming sig. The Nike KD1, in it’s Sonics away colorway, features an upper of Black Patent and Nubuck on a low profile Zoom outsole. Durant’s KD logo is emblazoned on Yellow at the ankle with additional yellow accents in the contrast stitching and outsole. Like many of KD’s previous Nike PEs, the KD1 also features a tribute to his mother, Wanda Pratt, on the inner tongue.
The Nike KD1 is scheduled to release for the 08/09 Basketball season.
