The Nike Zoom KD V joins the Elite pack this go around, as it was left out last year in favor of the Nike Hyperdunk. The KD is built around superior control, something that ensures KD can maneuver his 6’10 frame effortless around the hardwood. The model drops down to a low-cut and adds in reinforced Flywire throughout the shoe as well as affixing a carbon fiber heel counter for support. Another glaring modification is the addition of an exposed air bubble thanks to an arch built in with a gap from forefoot to heel. The model comes with a nifty paint job thanks to its Superhero theme. Hit the jump for the press release from nike as well as more photos.
