Launching within a week is the Nike Zoom KDIV "Nerf" featuring a performance benefits of the new Adaptive Fit system, Hyperfuse construction and Zoom Air. But what makes this shoe POPS is the unique inspiration behind it. The shoe is a palate for Nerf’s iconic graphics and bright color pops, with a special “KD35” graphic on the tongue in Nerf’s classic print. As Nike Basketball’s first shoe featuring the Adaptive Fit system, this new model uses a synthetic strap that wraps up from the inside of the upper and integrates with the laces for superior support.
Designed by Nike Basketball Design Director, Leo Chang with direct insights from Kevin Durant, it pays tribute to his team and family with details incorporated into the outsole including a lightning bolt traction pattern on the outsole representing KD’s team, “Big Chucky” on the heel pays tribute to KD’s late childhood mentor and coach, and initials “WP” in the shape of a heart on each toe represent Kevin’s parents. The Nike Zoom KDIV Nerf edition will feature a special box that will include a limited edition Nerf hoop and ball. This special energy colorway of the KDIV launches in limited availability at select retailers late November.
