Three Five’s for 35: Nike’s KD 5


Nike unveils its latest installment in the Kevin Durant signature series. The three fives are all representative of Mr. Three-Five himself.  The KD V utilizes the number “5” in three very unique personal attributes to produce a commemorative shoe. The young phenom will celebrate his wooden anniversary with Nike and begin his sixth NBA season in the signature sneaker.

The story behind Kevin’s signature begins with the five sides of the Pentagon in his hometown of Washington, D.C., five players united on court, and the five corners of a star. All of these elements are represented throughout the shoe, such as heel counter, tongue, outsole, and midsole. A Hyperfuse upper allows a secure fit, a forefoot Zoom unit for cushioning, an external heel counter for support, and a Nike Air unit in the heel completes the shoe. Now, KD’s equipped to complete the season as a champ, and you will be too.
