Kevin Durant’s newest Nike signature shoe is in full motion right now and it’s the Basketball shoe everyone’s excited about. Is the new articulated Zoom Air cushioning great?
Now ,we get it .
Yeah , now I attached the outbox as below :
As usually , I’d like to collected the out box, because I think the details is important , we can see a lot from only out box
The box of KD9 full of dark lines which seems a tattoo with black .There is a big Logo in the box.
Nike KD 9 USA used the Flyknit as usually which backed by nylon.it isn’t backed by glue . The natural flexibility of the material which support while allowing the material to react the way when in motion That is a great for us . The tighter overlay cross-pattern provides the hold by keeping the lateral stretch to a minimum.The heel is a mesh/fuse material which is just so so , but it work well .The rear section is textile mesh, foam, and Fuse, and it’s nothing fancy.But all of these done it job well .
Cushion was great, it felt heavy and too bouncy.Especially the full length used .
TPU bumps located towards the forefoot where the Zoom unit is segmented to provide flexibility.
You will feel that this setup keeps you confident and provides more than adequate energy retention on impact.
But I feel that it is will fastbreak in a short time fot the bottom design.
The KD9 support comes directly from the fit. For me . I need to 1/2 size down.If you were able to stay true to size, then your support will be fine (particularly wide-footers). If you have narrow feet and tried on the shoe that proceeded to have heel slippage, then you need to 1/2 size down.
The Phylon midsole is sculpted under the arch for a little stiffness there and the Zoom Max is cut away in that area to keep that sinking feeling away from that area.
There are a advantage for this shoes
Ventilation : That is great because of the Flyknit used .And the mash is help to ventilate.
And there are a special design that I’d love say .
The logo of the heel and the signature .As a fan , I have to say it is great for me , just like He with me when playing .
The tongue of shoes is red color which Durant design .
Overall . For $150 you’re getting solid rubber traction, awesome cushioning, nice materials, and hopefully a size that fits you.
