Since 2008, Leo Chang has been the creative mind behind Kevin Durant’s signature line of footwear and on December 3rd, the fourth installment of the KD series will make it’s official Debut. Tonight, Nike officially Unveiled the Zoom KD IV with extra specifications and breakdowns behind the inspiration and technology that is featured on this basketball shoe. Using a bit of input from Kevin Durant himself, the Nike Zoom KD IV pays tribute to his team and family with details incorporated into the outsole including a lightning bolt traction pattern representing KD’s team and “Big Chucky” on the heel which pays tribute to KD’s late childhood mentor and coach. The initials “WP” in the shape of a heart on each toe represent Kevin’s parents and “Barbara” is his grandmother’s name. Personal messages as “Work Hard” and “Stay Focused” are printed also on the outsole.
