What we say: When Kevin Durant decided to team up with Kyrie Irving and sign with the Brooklyn Nets, it brought together two of the most exciting basketball players in the world – no, we haven’t forgotten about you, James Harden. As Kyrie and KD are Nike athletes – complete with their own signature sneakers – the marketing possibilities are now endless for basketball’s biggest brand.
Taking full advantage of the Kyrie and KD connection, the Swoosh takes standout colorways from each player’s signature line and transfers them to the other athlete’s current on-court sneaker. For example, Irving’s Kyrie 7 will soon be released in an iteration reminiscent of Durant’s KD 7 “Weatherman”, arguably the greatest KD colorway of all time. Aptly nicknamed the “Ky-D”, the Kyrie 7 sports both the vibrant colors and topographic map-inspired lines that made the KD 7 “Weatherman” a hit.
Blending KD’s colors and designs with Kyrie’s signature sneaker, this distinctive release is a must-have for hoops fans. If you want to add the Kyrie 7 “Ky-D” to your collection, you’ll have the opportunity when the colorway drops on June 5 at 10am. SNKRS. In the meantime, you can browse the best NBA style here.
