Kevin Durant and Nike Basketball‘s KD 13 is certainly no stranger to loud, colorful prints and music-inspired designs. In months past, we’ve seen everything from blinged-out “Hype” makeups to NBA 2K20-exclusive “Funk” styles, but now Durant’s 13th signature Nike shoe has arrived in what might be its loudest makeup yet: the “Easy Money Sniper.” Featuring a ’60s-style floral print, the “Easy Money Sniper” is a simultanious nod to the grooves of psychedelic rock music and the Brooklyn Nets forward’s relaxed rhythms on the court.
Originally thought by many to be a “Peace, Love and Basketball” colorway, the “Easy Money Sniper” offers a black upper that’s covered in multi-colored daisies from toe to heel and also features a smiley face on the quarter. Winged overlays towards the lateral and medial collar offer a more tightly-cropped flower print, and add a bubble-lettered “Love” graphic. “KD” embellishments take the same font up on the heel.
Collars and tongues add a wavy layered graphic, and translucent Swooshes dip down low into the midsole. This midsole is the only simple part of the shoe, utilizing Zoom Air cushioning and dressed in an unadorned ivory tone to match the outsole. Mango-colored shoelaces finalize the look.
The Nike KD 13 “Easy Money Sniper” will release via Nike SNKRS Japan on August 20, and is priced at $180 USD.
Elsewhere, Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 12 “Indigo” will reportedly feature a wear-away design under its upper.
