NIKE ZOOM KD IV
Launch Date: December 3, 2011
Kevin Durant never stops. Appearing at various charity games and basketball-related events over the last few months, KD tirelessly looks to improve his game and evolve as a player in his fourth signature shoe, the Nike Zoom KD IV. It’s loaded with performance features and design details inspired by insights from Durant himself.
The most noticeable feature on the Nike Zoom KD IV is a synthetic strap that wraps up from the inside of the upper and integrates with the laces. This Adaptive Fit system provides lateral support and a customized, locked-in fit. Hyperfuse construction on the upper combines three different layers of material that are fused together to create a seamless, one-piece upper that’s lightweight, breathable and durable. And a forefoot Nike Zoom unit lends serious cushioning.
Durant’s latest shoe also pays tribute to his team and family with several signature details. For example, a lightning bolt traction pattern on the outsole represents his team, and “Big Chucky” on the heel pays tribute to his late childhood mentor and coach. Put all the performance features and signature details together and you have the shoe that helps make Kevin Durant unstoppable.
