Today we got the Kevin Durant’s latest signature model, the Nike KD 9 Elite.Saw the shoes ,I remember the old days in my college in 2010 which basketball memory .I have been a fan for Durant , Nike had a training activity in that summer .So luck that I met the Durant .He is so patience and humility . That was impression by people in present .
Now we got it .
1.Nike Zoom KD 9 Performance Review Material
KD 9 used the Flyknit in the upper .
The midfoot area is where the Flyknit material really starts to come into its own as it’s a fully breathable zone that is as true as Flyknit is going to get. However, the toebox uses a tighter knit and feels a little stiffer than the rest of the upper.The Flyknit material is more breathability .That is my favorite ,especially I ‘d like wear the long Nike hyper elite sock .
The colorway which black with black and gold logo .SWOOSH logo on the shoe was designed with a hook. It was said that the design was inspired by the tube of neon light.
There is a signature of Durant –’Kevin Durant’.
2.Nike Zoom KD 9 Performance Review Traction
The overall traction experience is pretty consistent, despite this colorway using a translucent rubber outsole
Some people will said that the rubber outsole is not very durable ,but I played in the dusty court two hours . It is do the job well .There is no in the damage in bottom .maybe it is need more time to test .
The bottom of hexagon sole lines provide grip in all directions .We can do what we want .though a lot of people dont like the linked-tube .
3.Nike Zoom KD 9 Performance Review Cushioning
The full-length articulated Max Zoom Air setup in the KD 9 .
It is most versatile cushion setups on the market today because every player of any play style can find something they like about it. The full length design show more stronger , player can feel clearly out of shape when jump to fall .
The forefeet is thin compare with another shoes .
4.Nike Zoom KD 9 Performance Review Supporting /Fit
Compare with the last version of KD , The locdown is not very well , especial the suddenly stop , the toe will be hurt .
So many people will except the KD 9 Elite can improving this disvantage .But after tested it , it is not very well .The ‘Elite ’Seems not meaning the upgate .
The size is true . You can buy the size as usually .
Overall ,KD 9 elite is worth to buy .Fit and support are two very important categories and while the KD 9 Elite doesn’t perform well , the rest of the shoe performs like a top tier on-court model. The traction, cushion and materials all bring out the best of Nike’s technology.
