Ahead of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 17th, Kevin Durant and Nike Basketball recently previewed the MLK Day Edition of Durant’s signature footwear, the Nike Zoom KD III. Purposefully done, each design aspects of the shoe serve as a tribute to greatness. Inspired by black sneakers worn by African-American athletes during the troubled decade of 1960s, the KD III features a mostly black upper, joined by accents of metallic gold, reminders of their achievements. Subtle tonal finishes, with wood carving motifs on black overlays, invoke hints of heritage. Look for the Nike Zoom KD III (3) – Martin Luther King Day this coming Monday as Kevin Durant goes head-to-head against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
