Colourways of Kevin Durant’s KD 9 were scarce at first, but as demand for the model increases we’re seeing the shoe branch out with a variety of schemes. Adding to the Flyknit NikeiD option that commemorated Durant’s signing to the Golden State Warriors is this ‘Birds of Paradise’ number.
The shoe’s inspiration is clear if you’ve ever seen the Bird of Paradise doing its mating dance – which consists of the bird flaring up the black feathers at its rear and blaring turquoise blue at its front. You're sure to catch attention in these numbers, perhaps even from a potential mate.
The Nike KD 9 Bird of Paradise will be available from Nike online on August 19.
