Release: 26 August 2022

Style Code: DO9825-900

Colourway: 9th Wonder

Patrick Denard Douthit, better known as 9th Wonder, is a hip hop producer, DJ, and rapper hailing from North Carolina. The legendary collaborator has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige.

9th Wonder is now partnering with another superstar in their respective field, the 47-year-old artist linking up with Kevin Durant for a rendition of the Nike KD 15. Starting with muted colour for the base layer of textile and suede, 9th Wonder’s mismatched caged overlays provide glow-in-the-dark-esque coloured detailing for the uppers. The mismatched theme continues to the heel tabs, where bright, contrasting ‘EA$Y’ text alludes to Durant’s online moniker, Easy Money Sniper.

In the engine room down below, the KD 15 boasts full-length Cushlon foam plus a visible Air Zoom Strobel unit, while reduced layering on the uppers removes unnecessary heaviness and imbues the silhouette with a broken-in feel. In terms of the outsoles, the team at Nike have taken cues from a topographical map, with the contoured ridges distributing impact across the outsoles.
