Kevin Durant’s fascination with meteorology comes alive in the Nike KD7 Weatherman shoe. This new colorway of Durant’s seventh signature shoe features a green upper in homage to newsroom green screens used by meteorologists. Doppler radar-inspired graphics wrap the shoe’s Hyperposite heel, Swoosh and outsole.
Each colorway of the KD7 reveals a piece of Durant’s life story. The weather-themed storyline was revealed last June as part of the shoe’s overall inspiration connected to lightning and thunder, building on the legacy that began with the KD4 Weatherman in 2011.
The Nike KD 7 “Weatherman” release date is set for March 5th for a retail price of $150. For those that didn’t know, before Kevin Durant’s passion for playing ball, KD originally wanted to become a Meteorologist which inspires the KD 7 “Weatherman” story. Originally introduced on the KD 4, The weatherman comes to us on the latest Kevin Durant model featuring a graphic Doppler radar theme. Emerald Green and Metallic Silver make up most of the upper, while Dark Emerald finishes these off to perfection. Let us know if you’re feeling the KD 7 in the comments!
