Big news in the sneaker world last night as Kevin Durant debuted his latest signature model. Durant took to the hardwood rocking the “90s Kid” colorway of his new Nike KD12 which features a grey base with neon pop colors and Nike’s latest tech, quad-axial Flywire. The shoe is slated to release globally on April 1 and will carry a sticker price of $150.
In Boston, the Celtics honored Isaiah Thomas with a video tribute featuring highlights from his special run with the team. On I.T.’s feet were a pair of the Nike Kobe A.D. done in Boston’s colors which he said he had been saving for the 2017 NBA Finals. Kyrie Irving, the Celtics’ current star that Thomas was ultimately traded for, wore another Oregon Ducks PE of his Nike Kyrie 5.
Quickly jumping back on the Kobe tip, Derrick Jones Jr. and Allonzo Trier both wore the Nike Zoom Kobe 6 with Jones wearing the “Rice” editions and Iso in the “Orange County” ASG model. Wayne Ellington also got into the mix with his pair of “Cool Grey” Nike Kobe A.D.s and the Kobe Sneaker King himself, DeMar DeRozan, wore a black and white team edition of the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Protro.
