As thoughts regarding his chemistry (or lack thereof) with Kyrie Irving and James Harden begin to unfold ahead of the 2020-21 NBA Playoffs, Kevin Durant and his Swoosh family have refocused their attention on the Nike KD 14.
After a vibrant colorway inspired by Irving’s first signature sneaker, Durant’s latest basketball shoe emerged in a simple “White/Black” style to match the Brooklyn Nets’ “Association” uniform. Layers of mesh and synthetic reinforcement throughout the pair’s upper indulge in ‘clear’ shades that allow the ‘black’ contrast between the Nike and ‘kd’ branding to revel in the spotlight. Nike Air Presto informed midfoot straps deviate from their surroundings with an icy finish, which also appears on the side component indicating the model’s use of the Zoom Air Strobel system. Although the cushioning has a yellow tone, it is arguably overshadowed by the greyscale camo print that appears on the outsole.
Enjoy official images of this “Home” style of the KD 14 and anticipate a launch on Nike.com before the end of the summer.
Elsewhere under the Swoosh umbrella, the Air Max 90 has recently appeared in a handful of summer-ready styles.
