Nike Basketball And Kevin Durant “Make a Champion" and New KD 10 Release

Nike Basketball And Kevin Durant “Make a Champion" and  New KD 10 Release

Love him, hate him, or just don’t care, no one can deny one thing: Kevin Durant is a champion.
Yeah, he went to the team that beat him. Yeah, the Warriors were already loaded. And yeah, he only averaged over 30 points per game and won Finals MVP. The move worked for him and Warriors fans everywhere. The trophy was the culmination of a 10-year career spent with Seattle (remember them?), Oklahoma City, and now, Golden State. What has been one constant in his game? Nike.

Ever since KD was a kid running up the neighborhood hills, playing summer leagues in the DMV/Baltimore area, leading the nation in scoring and rebounding at the University of Texas (Hook ‘Em!!), he has worn the Swoosh on his feet — and this Finals were no different. Debuting the Nike Zoom KD 10 in the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Kevin won nine out of ten games in the KD10 while averaging 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists.

The ‘BeTrue’ moniker celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and aims at supporting all athletes by encouraging equality and respect for everyone. The ‘BeTrue’ KD10s have been spotted on the feet of WNBA stars like LA Sparks Champion Essence Carson and Connecticut Sun superstar Jonquel Jones.

This Nike Zoom KD10 features an all black Flyknit upper and yellow lettering on the tongue and the Swoosh. The translucent outsole beautifully maintains the eight colors of the original 1978 Pride Flag, much like the Nike Air VaporMax ‘BeTrue’ did.

There is no word if or when the Nike KD 10 ‘BeTrue’ will release, or if they will be PEs only. It would probably be in the Swoosh’s best interest to release this build, not only the performance aspect, but for the message it relays: equality.

Nike Basketball Shoes has released a short video titled “Making a Champion” chronicling that journey and now we get to bring it to you. Enjoy.  http://www.kd10sale.com

NIKE KD 9 ELITE – PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 15 juin 2017, 10:56 dans Humeurs 0

Today we’re going to be doing a performance review on the Kevin Durant’s latest signature model, the Nike KD 9 Elite. This model re-works the Flyknit upper but also brings back the same cushioning (Max Zoom Air) and traction from the original KD 9’s, but is it a performance upgrade? Let’s find out…

Traction: The overall traction experience is pretty consistent, despite this colorway using a translucent rubber outsole. It really doesn’t matter what condition the floor you play on is in because the honeycomb pattern that Nike has reused from the original KD 9 is going to keep you covered in all directions. If your floor is extremely dusty all you’ve got to do is wipe a few times and then you’re good to go.

As far as outsole durability goes, the rubber compound Nike uses isn’t very durable and the outsole started to show signs of wear after four or five hours of use. So while these won’t be your first option for outdoor ball, the KD 9 Elite’s traction is a top-tier performer in just about every other situation so if you need some consistency in your life, feel free to pick these up.

Cushion: Here’s another category where Nike didn’t change anything from the original KD 9 — and we’re perfectly okay with that. The full-length articulated Max Zoom Air setup Nike uses here is one of the most versatile cushion setups on the market today because every player of any play style can find something they like about it. Explosiveness? Check. Responsiveness? Check. Court feel? Check. Impact protection? Check. Sure, there may be other cushion setups out there that excel and surpass the KD 9 Elite in each of these categories but the KD 9 might just be the only one that provides an above average experience in all of them.

Materials: This is where the Elite version of the KD 9 starts to switch things up from its original version. Nike re-worked the Flyknit upper to make it a little more true to what we see on popular Sneaker running models (like the Flyknit Racer) with a more pliable and forgiving knit construction. The midfoot area is where the Flyknit material really starts to come into its own as it’s a fully breathable zone that is as true as Flyknit is going to get. However, the toebox uses a tighter knit and feels a little stiffer than the rest of the upper; but when you compare it to the toebox on the  Air Jordan 7 ‘Wild ‘N Out’ , the KD 9 Elite feels far superior and quite frankly, a lot more comfortable.

The heel panel also differentiates from the original KD 9’s with a neoprene sock-like construction that is honestly more of an aesthetic look than a performance feature; it’s hard to notice during use and hardly effects the overall feel of the KD 9 Elite.

Fit: At this point in the review you’re probably thinking, “Wow, the KD 9 Elite is perfect, this is just too good to be true”. Yes, it is too good to be true because this is where the KD 9 Elite starts to fall off. Listen carefully as it really is just this simple: if you don’t have a long, narrow foot like Durant himself, you’re going to have some issues with the fit. I had to go down half a size to compensate for the extremely long fit and by doing so the width became uncomfortably narrow. This forced me to loosen up the lacing, but by doing so the support and lockdown were negatively affected.

Overall, I just found the fit to be too specific and not versatile enough to cater to a wide range of foot shapes and sizes, so again, unless you’ve got KD-like feet, you may want to pass on the KD 9 elite.
