Kevin Durant’s game is as smooth as they come, effortless with an ease rarely seen in sports. Stuart Scott would have said it was “as cool as the other side of the pillow.” Smooth, silky, velvety. The latter, in all its glory, has been touted as a moniker for the latest release of his Nike KDX.
Dubbed the Nike KDX “Red Velvet” edition, Nike patterns this vibrant style after Durant’s calm and cool under fire. Durant, of course, is also using this shoe to respond to “cupcake” claims after venturing to greener pastures also known as the Bay Area, nestled within the cozy confines alongside Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
Take an official look at the Nike KDX “Red Velvet” and pick up a pair on SNKRS on September 1.
