Kicks: The Nike Zoom KD IV

Kevin Durant’s new sneaks.

by Chris O’Leary / @olearychris

Turns out this is the week of the sneaker debut. After the Zoom Kobe VII made its way around the sneaker blogosphere on Sunday, CounterKicks has posted pictures of the Nike Zoom KD IV.

The shoe features an adjustable lockdown strap, Zoom Air and a herringbone pattern that resembles a thunderbolt on the sole. It also looks like the IV has traded out the Flywire used in the KD III for Hyperfuse. CK is saying these eight colorways will drop in Spring 2012.

    Can’t say that I’m a fan of KDs shoes, I think they make them look too much like Kobe’s. I do commend him for putting out a reasonably priced(by today’s standards) sneaker tho. I wonder if Nike will keep these around the $90 like his previous kicks.

    These feel way more signature than his other more bland shoes. Unfortunately, they will probably be more expensive

    Big improvement. I had the KD II and I loved them, but I just didn’t care about the KD III. I’d definitely consider these. They look nice, the strap’s cool and the hyperfuse technology is just the best thing in the world (for me at least).

    At a closer look this is a low cut Air Jordan Fly Wade with a stap. Same midsole and toebox. SMH

    @ hoodsnake You’re right I thought I saw these before. I’m pretty sure these were supposed to be the 3s, then the 3s dropped and I thought “wheres the strap?” lol

    Nike is always my favour shoes!

  • da Real

    This will be the first KD that kids actually want for the look and not just because it is a KD shoe.

    KD is the new kobe for nike so they better get Tinker or someone on that level to do the next few

    Love ‘em, but Spring 2012? WTF? Why are they releasing pics a year before the release? I have found I prefer Hyperfuse mesh to Flywire though. The Thunder home colorway is hella nice.
