This latest edition of the Nike KD7 — dubbed the “Calm Before the Storm” — features neutral grey base accented with pops of pink throughout, giving rise to the imagery of deceptively tranquil skies abruptly giving way to stormy skies. Nike designers wove the transitory weather narrative onto the shoe’s exterior, reflecting Kevin Durant’s ability to strike unexpectedly on the court. As always, personal cues from the player’s life are featured on the KD7 design, including a silhouette of Durant’s home state of Maryland embedded on the outsole, along with the names of his mother Wanda, his grandmother Barbara, his father Wayne and his brother Tony inscribed on the forefoot strap. The Nike KD7 “Calm Before the Storm” drops Saturday at Nike.com and select Nike Basketball retailers.
