Above is the latest signature colorway of the Nike KD7, and it’s called “Uprising.” Inspired by the rare weather phenomenon known as “sprite lightning,” this paint job is officially Hyper Jade/Black-Volt and the shoe features atmospheric graphics on the Swoosh outsole. Like lightning, Kevin Durant has risen from humble beginnings in Seat Pleasant, Maryland to the top of the NBA, winning MVP last season.
“I started from the bottom with humble beginnings and I’m focused on rising to the top,” says KD via Nike press release. “Growing up in Maryland taught me how to survive and work hard, how to just go out there and believe in yourself,” said Durant. “So many people told me I couldn’t do it, but when you fall down, you have to get back up and learn.”
The KD7 “Uprising” hits shelves on October 16 at Nike.com and select retail locations for $150.
