Home / Nike KD X

When it comes to NBA All-Star Weekend, Nike never holds back on their story telling and sneaker releases that are usually some of the biggest of the year. 2018 is going to be no different from Nike Hoops as they look to drop special signature sneakers that will be worn in the All-Star game that is taking place in the ever popular, Los Angeles. As their big four of Kyrie Irving, Paul George, Kevin Durant and LeBron James look to dominate the game with their style of play and their signature sneaker style, Nike is getting extra creative for this moment. Each sneaker represents a part of the city through a special colorway or standout feature to really catch peoples eyes.

 

Kyrie Irving and Nike Basketball will be celebrating this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles with a special edition Nike Kyrie 4 All-Star as Kyrie makes his fifth appearance in the game. This Nike Kyrie 4 sports a black and white tie-dye pattern throughout the upper. What makes this sneaker really pop is the purple details that are used on the embroidered Nike Swoosh, while pink and blue appears on the tongue Kyrie logo and outsole. Like the KD X, this pair represents another specific location in Los Angeles, as the insoles have graphics of Venice Beach. They also point out that Kyrie is a “5x All-Star” on the insoles of the sneakers.

The Warriors are picking up where they left off last year and don’t seem to be slowing down. While KD is dropping dimes on the regular, Nike is dropping a new KD X colorway that goes perfect with their new ‘City Edition’ uniforms.Nike recently unveiled their alternate uniforms for the NBA and dubbed them the ‘City Edition’. The Nike NBA City Edition uniforms represent insights and emotion from the court to the upper deck to the cities’ streets, in pursuit of a unique way to capture each team and its city in a way that respects the past and present of the clubs while also positioning them for the future.

The Warriors City Edition jerseys pay tribute to the incredibly popular Chinatown District in the Bay Area that is extremely popular. Fully equipped with a blue Flyknit upper, this tribute to one of the largest Chinatown’s in the US utilizes a special logo on the tongue that combines elements from KD, the Warriors, and Chinese heritage alike.

Through the last couple of years, sneaker brands have celebrated and honored historic moments through colorways and special designs. While athletes have become more involved in what’s going on in the world, they have began to use their platform to make it known that they’re taking a stand on how they feel about certain causes. LeBron James started the NBA season by stepping out on the court in his signature shoe with “EQUALITY” stitched into the heels. Most recently, Nike Basketball and Jordan Brand are celebrating Black History Month with the message of EQUALITY through special colorways on the LeBron 15, KD X, Kyrie 3 and Air Jordan Retro 1 and Air Force 1 Low CMFT.

The Nike LeBron 15 features a black, red and green Flyknit upper which is meant to honor the Pan-African flag. Metallic Gold “BHM” logos appear on the tongues and insole to make sure the message is known. One of the shock absorbers on the sole of the sneaker is inscribed with the date 07-13-2016 in gold which represents the day James, along with Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, and current Cavalier teammate Dwyane Wade stood up at the ESPY’s to give a speech about equality and ending violence.

Kyrie Irving’s signature sneaker, the Nike Kyrie 4 is one of the star footwear styles in the lineup. His Black History Month sneaker features a white-based hue across its knitted and leather upper that is detailed with the word “Equality” embossed across the whole shoe. A white midsole, black lining and a nod to the Pan-African flag with red, black and green hues are seen on the outsoles to complete the theme altogether.

Kevin Durant just hit the career milestone of scoring 20,000 points and now his signature sneaker is getting the Black History Month treatment. The KD X features a black-based upper with with red and green knit detailing. Its midsole dons the colors of the Pan-African flag colors and is complimented by metallic gold branding. 05-06-2014 is embossed in gold on the medial side of the shoe right above the midsole. This date represents the day that Kevin Durant won his NBA MVP and the mayor of Oklahoma City, Mary Fallin, declared it ‘Kevin Durant Day’ as a gesture of gratitude to KD’s contributions to the community.

The Nike Air Force 1 ‘Equality’ sports an all-black leather upper with the word “EQUALITY” in white printed on the heels. These have a premium feel thanks to the tumbled leather tongue label and historical dates in Metallic Gold on the inner tongues. Nike’s signature CMFT insoles and a translucent outsole completes the design.
