A First Look At The Nike KD 9 “Texas”

Another day, another bold new design from the good folk over at Nike. Today they return with another rendition of the KD 9, serving up a fitting ode to Kevin Durant’s alma mater in the process. Today we get our first look at Nike KD 9 “Texas.” This unique design features a clean and sleek approach, boasting the university’s colors throughout.

The kicks come rocking a special off-white upper that boasts the sock-like Flyknit forefoot. Trust details make a nice touch and a nod to the University of Texas on the swooshes. The design comes together over top of a gum outsole and full-length visible Zoom Air unit and a white midsole. Check out the clean, outstanding new design in the images below and speak your mind on it after the jump. Stay tuned for much more from Nike coming soon. Look for the KD 9 “Texas” on March 10 at select retailers and online of course.
