Kevin Durant only played basketball at the University of Texas for one year, but his impact and love of the Longhorns is well documented. Continuing that passion for UT, Nike and KD will release a special ‘Wild West’ version of his latest signature kicks, the KD7, this Friday. Featuring a silver and orange color scheme that’s set off with a metallic Hyperposite heel, the the KD7 ‘Wild West’ shoe takes inspiration from the Longhorn State and the Austin culture that Durant enjoyed. Knowing little about Texas and southwest hospitality, Durant immediately felt at home when he arrived on campus in Austin. The friendly welcome extended beyond the basketball court as Durant enjoyed the music, people, food and culture that was distinctly Austin.

The Nike KD7 ‘Wild West’ drops this Friday, December 19th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 150. Grade school kids sizes will also be available ($ 115).
