Certainly not letting the current NBA dispute slowing them down, Kevin Durant and Nike Basketball will be launching the Nike Zoom KD IV – NERF Edition next month. A tribute to his upbringing, the NERF edition is in reference to the colorful playset created by toy maker HASBRO. The sneaker also reflects positive influences during Durant’s childhood – the heart-like “WP” initials for his parents and “Big Chucky” marking on the heel, a tribute to his late youth basketball coach and mentor. Other details are more current, such as the lightening bolt patterned treads for Durant’s team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. The first Nike Basketball footwear to include Adaptive Fit, a system of integrated straps and laces for greater support, the Nike Zoom KD IV NERF will be available next month as a limited edition at select Nike Basketball retail locations.
