Nike dubbed their newest signature athlete “The Baddest” after his regular season MVP award in 2014. In his 15th Beaverton-based signature silhouette, Kevin Durant is quietly enjoying another MVP-level season while shooting an insane 56 percent from the field. From his Brooklyn neighborhood tribute to his annual Aunt Pearl memorial, the latest Nike KD 15 pairs his “B.A.D” attitude with those close to him who share it.
Plenty of support and traction are provided by the TPU cage
A light “Space Purple” envelops the mesh base layer and protective TPU caging across the midfoot, while a slightly darker “Oxygen Purple” explores the floral print found on its tongue and hang tag, as well as its laces, sock liner, and mudguard. A bright “Purple Cosmos” adorns both the exterior and medial side Checks, with a velvet finish across the top tongue and crisp white “B.A.D” stitching. Underfoot, a solid white midsole contrasts with the dominating main top and a translucent icy blue tread with a hidden away rose design. The nicknames of Durant’s inner circle and his brother Tony – dubbed “The Crew” – are embroidered along the inner tongue and printed on the insoles for yet another KD signature packed to the brim with candor and recognition.
Overall, this model is a trendy, engaging design that will appeal to both basketball enthusiasts and sneakerheads. There are several shoes that can be worn off the court and still look decent, but the KD 15 is without a doubt one of the greatest.
