UPDATE: Gearing up for its big debut this Friday, the Swoosh have unleashed a set of beauty shots of KD's newest silhouette in all its glory. Its light blue tinge is a lot more apparent – however, it remains an unobtrusive injection of pigment. The Nike Zoom KD 10 will be available May 26 through the SNKRS page of NDC and select Nike Basketball stockists.
Last week, we got our first sneak peek at the Zoom KD 10 care of a crafty sneaker leaker, and now the folks at the Swoosh have officially revealed the performance-heavy model. The tenth signature shoe for Golden State small forward Kevin Durant is bursting with the latest in Nike innovation. Touted as featuring the most advanced Flyknit ever produced for basketball, the new model is a subtle refinement of Durant's current on-court silhouette, the KD 9 Elite. To this end, the shoe integrates the very same Zoom Air unit from the KD9 and its Elite incarnation, with the emphasis squarely on fine-tuning the knitted upper. The shoe features high-tenacity yarn at stress points – with a high-stretch yarn used for the collar and across the forefoot to create a sock-like fit.
For its debut, the model will drop in an 'Anniversary' colourway that features a faint blue upper adorned with a Swoosh that blends together the colours of every team Durant had played for since his college days.
The Nike Zoom KD 10 'Anniversary' will release on May 26 through NDC and select Nike Basketball stockists.
