Taking everything into consideration, Leo Chang, Footwear Design Director for http://nikebasketball.com” target=”_blank”>Nike Basketball, deftly incorporated http://kevindurant35.com” target=”_blank”>Kevin Durant‘s personal stories and the available technical advancements into Durant’s latest signature edition. The result was the http://freshnessmag.com/2012/10/23/nike-kd-v-officially-unveiled/” target=”_blank”>KD V. Rooted in the numeral “5,” as in the number of players a team has on the basketball court and the Pentagon, a landmark at Durant’s hometown of Washington DC. Chang also translated the concept into tread patterns on the KD V, along with the names of Durant’s Grandmother, Parents, and Brother, all literal representations of Durant’s support structure. Other symbolisms include area codes of Maryland and City of Austin, where Durant grew-up and went to college. Those tied in with Seattle area codes and that of Oklahoma City, where Durant played and is playing for. Plus, numbers “30.1,” “27.7,” and “28.0,” to mark his title as the 3-time NBA scoring champion. Finally, like all other previous Durant signatures, small inscriptions honor KD’s childhood mentor, Big Chucky, and his hometown of Seat Pleasant, MD.
