Durant surprised the public on Instagram Friday night with a sneak peek of three Nike KD 16 hues. The sneakers looked fantastic against the desert background of Phoenix, perched atop cacti.
Following the aesthetic of Durant's previous trademark sneakers, the Nike KD 16 has a streamlined and elegant style. The 16’s will include a knit upper, ventilation on the sides, and a low-cut silhouette. We can also assume that the three color combinations are shown above: black/purple, red/white, and blue/pink.
Updated porous ventilation has been added to the medial and lateral sides of the KD 15's mid-foot TPU caging system, extending onto the split midsole of the forefoot. Zoom Air is probably present in the heel, but other than that, the KD logo can be seen on the tongue tabs, and the upper collar features the classic Swoosh. Although it's yet unknown which colorway Durant would pick for the occasion, the Nike KD 16 is anticipated to make its on-court debut as soon as this Sunday.
