IN FOCUS: NIKE KD7 ‘GLOBAL GAME’
It’s been about a month since Nike Basketball debuted Kevin Durant’s latest shoe, the KD7. Like any other signature athlete, Durant’s line is inspired by his journey on and off the court. During the presser, designer Leo Chang mentioned that KD’s been a fan of the red sneaker. And debuting this weekend is the latest colorway dubbed the “Global Game“.
The KD7 Global Game pays tribute to Durant’s worldwide travels. Basketball has provided Durant with the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Asia, Europe and the US. Nike has been on this journey with Durant, almost every step along the way.
With Durant being a part of Team USA and him participating at FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, it made the perfect opportunity for Chang to give KD a tonal red sneaker. Looking at the shoe up close, you’ll notice the globe graphic inside the D and the Swoosh is adorned with confetti in celebration of the two gold medals and tournament MVP honors Durant has earned playing internationally for the USA. Durant will lead the USA Basketball team through a series of important global games this summer beginning in Chicago at the World Basketball Festival, August 14-17, and culminating at the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, August 30 to September 14. You can catch those games beginning this weekend on Basketball TV.
The KD7 Global Game launches in limited quantities on Saturday, August 2 at select retail locations and nike.com. So make sure to call your global connects to get a pair of those Global Game KD7s.
