Austin, Texas will always be a special place to Kevin Durant. It’s where his Maryland upbringings welcomed unfamiliar southern flare. It’s where the freshman baller registered an award-winning season. It’s where his play energized a campus, having fans waving the index and pinky fingers with pride.
Celebrating Durant’s collegiate career, the latest KD 7 EXT returns in animal print, taking inspiration from his universities’ rich heritage. The upper features all-over pony hair, mirroring the steer’s spotted hide. Black accents are present on a suede flocked midsole, signature strap and tongue where his initials are displayed. Cementing Durant’s one-year legacy before turning pro, a branded Swoosh on the toe and heel marks two of his greatest achievements–leading all freshmen in scoring and becoming the first freshman to win the most prestigious player award that season. Tying the design together, a gum sole contours a responsive Zoom Air Bag in the heel for lasting comfort.
Celebrate the Longhorn State. The KD 7 EXT drops January 9th on nike.com/sportswear and at select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide.
