Nike Releases the KD9 Zero, Kevin Durant’s Latest Signature Shoe

Monday afternoon Kevin Durant and Nike combined to announce the official release of the KD9 Zero, the latest in his signature sneaker line. The announcement included Durant making a return to the University of Texas in Austin, where he played one season (2005-06) before moving on to the NBA.

Durant’s latest shoe, which was designed by Leo Chang, is the first in the KD line to include Nike’s Flyknit technology in the upper with a Zoom Air unit that runs the length of the shoe.

Per Nike the suggested retail price for the shoe is $150, which is $30 cheaper than the suggested retail price for the original KD8 sneaker that released last summer. The KD9 Zero will only be available via Nike’s SNKRS app at this time. This is the first of three color ways of the KD9 to release, with the KD9 Premiere (white/blue/red) and KD9 Mic Drop (black/white) color ways set to release in the coming months.

No concrete release dates for those shoes were given by Nike in today’s announcement.
