Kevin Durant not being in the 2014-15 NBA Playoffs doesn’t exclude his current signature, the KD7 from being apart of the latest Nike Basketball Elite collection.
For the Nike KD7 ‘Elevate’, the blue hues used literally gets its inspiration from above as the sky was the reference point for the entire collection. The most notable difference between the KD7 and KD7 Elite is this updated version removes the forefoot strap seen on the original, but the most understated upgrade comes from the perforated holes in the Hyperposite upper which provides weight reduction and improved ventilation.
Along with the KD7 ‘Elevate’ sneaker, there is a full apparel collection in the same colorway coming out as well. Items include Elite socks, t-shirt and shorts, and the extra-handy Nike Elite backpack which comfortably holds a basketball, sneakers, and other in its segmented pockets.
The ‘Elevate’ Nike KD7 Elite releases on Friday, May 15th for $200.
