Since its December 2008 debut, the Kevin Durant signature shoe line has imaginatively fused performance innovation with the six-time All-Star’s personal stories. The new KD7 What The shoe combines various colors, patterns, graphics and technical details of popular KD7 colorways into a modern mashup. The KD7 What The thoughtfully fuses elements from 18 past colorways of Durant’s seventh signature shoe into a single, inspiring design. The KD7 forefoot strap, a functional feature to keep Durant locked into the shoe, also serves as a creative storytelling tool. The KD7 What The shoe’s left strap features an angel wing from the Aunt Pearl colorway, honoring the athlete’s late aunt, while the strap on the right shoe pulls from the KD7 All-Star colorway inspired by progressive New York City architecture.
This “What The” edition of the Nike KD 7 stays true to past releases as the entire theme of the shoe is combining previous mixtures of various colors from past Nike KD 7 release. To go along with the multicolor color scheme, the shoe also incorporates previous prints and style cues from past KD colorways as well. Other details to the shoe include glow-in-the-dark feature on the Hyperposite area.
