Following an exclusive ID option, the newly-introduced Nike KD 9 will be offered in a new colorway dubbed, “Birds Of Paradise.”

While a backstory of the sneaker’s distinct aesthetic has not been revealed yet, the silhouette is suggested to pay homage to Durant’s recent tour to China, which may debut overseas first. Essentially defined by its flyknit upper dipped in a mixture of teal and green, the vibrant palette is complemented with tonal black located on the rear, inner lining, laces and pull tabs, as it all rests atop a white Zoom sole unit. More accents of teal are implemented on the tongue, Swoosh branding on its side panels and midsole as well to round out its profile.

Author’s Take:

Renz Ofiaza, News: I like the silhouette overall and this colorway is probably one of the best so far. I’m just biased towards the palette I guess, but, it’s a nice offering overall.
