Hardly anyone would dispute the fact that Kevin Durant is historically one of the best scorers who will always deliver – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It is interesting how the numbers 2, 4, and 7 are combined in the 14th edition of his signature sneaker, and if the link is not immediately clear to you, you can find it in the main visual feature on the Nike KD 14 model.

Of course, it is the strap that has so far appeared on the second, fourth, and seventh editions of Kevin Durant’s line. When announcing the new model, KD immediately commented on it and said:

“It’s been a while since we incorporated the strap, which excites me.”

He added that he was delighted with the fact that his foot was very close to the ground in the new sneaker, but we will talk about that a little bit later.

The strap is also special because it undoubtedly found inspiration for its look in the famous Nike Air Presto sneaker that was unveiled at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and has since taken its place among some of the most popular Nike releases of all time.

Interestingly, Kevin was just 12 years old back then, but he already began his ascent in the world of basketball. Along with the development of his game that started then, he was also developing physically, so at the age of 13 KD was 183 cm tall, during his first (and only) season of college basketball for the Texas Longhorns he was 206 cm, while he is currently at 211 cm!

Another special historical stylistic detail is the slightly elongated Swoosh logo on the strap, which is a nod to the legendary Bruin model, the first Nike basketball sneaker and the Blazer.

Since we quoted Kevin earlier about his satisfaction with bringing his feet closer to the ground, it is necessary to mention one very important technical detail. In particular, it is about the insanely comfortable Zoom Air Strobel under the whole foot that is again on this year’s model, but this time there was one change. Specifically, there is no longer an additional Zoom unit that was under the heel on the KD12, and under the front of the foot on the thirteens. This made the sneaker lighter and increased comfort while slightly limiting energy return from the movement that was present with the previous two models.

The minimal weight of the sneaker was maintained with excellent mesh materials in several layers of the upper thus bring stability and durability of the sneaker, while also providing many options for colors and patterns, which guarantees that we can expect a lot of great colorways.

We must also mention the overall stabilization that is provided by the awesome heel counter, the strap on the medial side, and a special rubber-plastic part on the lateral side. All this is perfectly complemented by a somewhat unusual line sole pattern that delighted us!
