Kevin Durant is hosting a charity game tonight in Oklahoma City tonight to bring some of the OKC faithful some pro Basketball during the terrible lockout while giving back to the community. To celebrate the occasion, KD broke out the “Nerf” Nike Zoom KD IV. Inspired by everyone’s childhood favorite sporting brand, the Nerf Nike Zoom KD IV features a mix Nerf-like colors including Purple, Black, Neon Green, Neon Red, and more, plus there is speckling on the strap and midsole and Nerf treated logos on the tongue.
No word on a release date as of now. Once I hear something, it will be posted.

Launching next month, the Nike Zoom KDIV Nerf edition features performance benefits including the Adaptive Fit system, Hyperfuse construction and Zoom Air. The shoe is a palate for Nerf’s iconic graphics and bright color pops, with a special “KD35” graphic on the tongue in Nerf’s classic print. As Nike Basketball’s first shoe featuring the Adaptive Fit system, this new model uses a synthetic strap that wraps up from the inside of the upper and integrates with the laces for superior support.
Designed with direct insights from Kevin Durant, it pays tribute to his team and family with details incorporated into the outsole including a lightning bolt traction pattern on the outsole representing KD’s team, “Big Chucky” on the heel pays tribute to KD’s late childhood mentor and coach, and initials “WP” in the shape of a heart on each toe represent Kevin’s parents. The Nike Zoom KDIV Nerf edition will feature a special box that will include a limited edition Nerf hoop and ball. This special energy colorway of the KDIV launches in limited availability at select retailers in November.
