Kevin Durant debuted the latest Nike KD9 Zero with a 33 point playoff performance.

The Nike KD9, designed by Leo Chang, is Durant’s most advanced shoe to date. It features a visible, tapered Zoom Air bag unit running from heel to toe and is kitted out to provide exceptional impact protection in the heel. Leo has also introduced Flyknit technology to the KD range, altering it to fit Durant’s fluid technique on court.

“My interests have changed, my game has changed and this is a perfect shoe for who I am now,” Durant says, followed by, “The shoes are perfectly catered to my foot, like I molded these and got a special pair made. That’s what I want everybody to feel who puts these on. It will feel personal.”

The KD9 is available now in limited quantities globally at Nike.com and selected stores in Singapore.
