In the past few weeks, news on several colorways of the KD IV has been revealed:
Launch Colorways – “Thunder Away” & “Blackout”
To start off the run of the KD IV, Nike is releasing what are usually two go-to colorways for Basketball players both in the NBA and at your local high school: a “Thunder Away” KD IV and a “Blackout” KD IV. Both pairs (and all KD IVs) feature a lightweight upper, a cross-mid-foot strap, and a new Adaptive Fit system. Both of these colorways will come out on December 2nd, but you can pre-order them on NikeStore now (Picture via Sneaker News).
Nike Zoom KD IV “Nerf” – New Pictures and Release Date
Around a month ago, Kevin Durant debuted the high-energy “Nerf” colorway of the KD IV that Nike worked with toy company Hasbro to create. Since then, many people have exclaimed how they cannot wait for this sick conceptual piece that even comes with a Nerf hoop and ball! Well, the wait will not be too long, as the “Nerf” KD IV will release on December 17th, 2011. Check out Sneaker News for some more pictures of the colorful shoe.
Nike Zoom KD IV “Weatherman”
Did I just say high-energy and sick conceptual piece? Yes, and I should say it again and again for the “Weatherman” KD IV. This sneaker, which takes its cue from Kevin Durant’s childhood dream of becoming a meteorologist, features a weather radar pattern all across its upper, with shades of green, yellow, orange, and red. Those bright colors are evened out with a black/yellow cross-mid-foot strap, a black midsole, and a clear outsole (that also features some of the weather radar patterns). Stay tuned to Sole Camp for further details on the “Weatherman” KD IV, Kevin Durant’s favorite colorway of the KD IV yet (Picture via Sneaker News).
