Perennial NBA All-Star Kevin Durant has had his name in the news as of late, and not because of expected trade talk. The does-it-all forward recently launched the latest installment from his signature sneaker model, the Nike Zoom KD IV. Featuring advanced sportswear technology to provide a comfortable, lightweight and responsive design, Durant hasn’t stopped with the signature Thunder colorway, opting to release a NERF as well as Weatherman-inspired pairs this month. With that said, last year’s scoring champ will start the season in style on Christmas Day against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic in pair of metallic copper KD IV’s, a colorway made popular by last year’s Foamposite release. A tone that really accents the sleekness of Durant’s latest player model, the KD IV Copper launches after the 25th at select retailers, although a pre-order is currently available now at Kix-Files.
