Kevin Durant KD16 NRG
Kevin Durant is a true hooper. He'd be just as happy running pickup all afternoon as he would be dropping 40-pieces in the playoffs. When your avid appetite for the game can’t be satisfied, lace up in the KD16’s. Nike Air and Zoom Air work together to provide speed and stability for all four quarters, while the upper is lower and the overall load is lighter compared to the previous iteration. It's ideal for the hoopaholic who can’t say no to just one more game. This special all-pink design honors KD's aunt who passed away from lung cancer in 2000, but inspires us all to continue to fight to find a cure.
Cushion and Comfort
A lightweight Nike Air unit at the bottom of the upper gives KD the cushioning and comfort he needs to thrive during a long season.
KD loved the 15’s underfoot experience, so we took inspiration from the previous iteration and added a bottom-loaded forefoot Zoom Air unit for extra pop and snappiness when the game hits high speeds. Responsive full-length foam adds a soft, comfortable sensation.
Groove and Move
Grooves and ridges in the sole help provide multidirectional traction and court feel. A stiff piece under the arch helps keep the shoe stable and help you smoothly transition from heel to toe.
Multilayer mesh in the upper is lightweight and dimensional with a broken-in feel. Added thickness in strategic areas helps to keep your foot in place by reducing small movements.
The outsole resembles watch gears, which represent the inner workings of KD and the methodical nature of how he operates.
