Good think Metta World Peace elbowed that Harden kid instead of KD, otherwise folks at Nike Basketball would've escalated the matter to suspension, cause like we all know, these babies can't sell itself w/o KD right? Oh wait, yeah they can. At $95 price point during what some called the WORST recession in history, the Nike Zoom KD IV has been an instant seller at Nike Basketball doors. Each time they put a new color that's bizarre or has a different twist to it, they GONE!
It helps that KD is a nice quiet kid who plays the game of basketball the right way, it also helps that Leo Chang the designer of the shoe was able to create something this awesome for the budget he was given and it's also pretty cool that they were able to tell a story behind each of these LIMITED cool offerings. But let's face it, WITHOUT any over the top media marketing, these shoes were able to reach star status because of the wild colors/theme behind them, heck most of the kids that bought these are mostly HYPEBEAST or resellers that are trying to make a quick buck flipping a $95 shoe into $250? What the hell?! Images via dunk
