It’s rare to find an athlete at the top of his or her sport that possesses both genuine humility and a ferocious appetite to consistently outwork the competition. Kevin Durant’s rise to superstardom parallels the rare weather phenomenon known as sprite lightning, which served as inspiration for the KD7 ‘Uprising’ colorway. “I started from the bottom with humble beginnings and I’m focused on rising to the top,” said Durant. The KD7 ‘Uprising’ also is a nod to Durant’s fascination with meteorology that began when he was a kid, and features atmospheric graphics on the Swoosh outsole. In addition to the kicks we’ll be carrying a matching Digital Elite KD Crew sock that will be available at select stores and online for $ 30 and also a matching ‘Lightning’ tee for $ 35 available in stores and online as well (pictures below).
The Nike KD7 ‘Uprising’ drops this Thursday, October 16th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8am EDT).
