If you are itching to switch things up come Valentine's Day, you might wanna get your man a "bouquet" of flowers -- literally right on his shoes.
Nike basically came up with a colorway that gives off that feel with Kevin Durant's 7 design (KD 7), perhaps attempting to convert men into floral-print-loving creatures.
The Nike KD 7 EXT "Floral" debuts with an old-fashioned, multicolored floral print, incorporated with gold damask and plant motifs overlayed on a a Midnight Navy base, with each pair featuring a different floral pattern.The leather interior, tongue and midfoot strap come in a Hazel Brown color. Shoe aficionados would also note the white midsole and the blue icy translucent outsole finishing it off.
The Boombox.com described the design as akin to the feel of a Kehinde Wiley painting. Wiley is a New York-based painter acclaimed for his highly naturalistic paintings of brown people in heroic poses.
NiceKicks said the design continues a motif that has been well received.
Nike.com will make the design available at exactly 10:00 a.m. EST. Sneaker Politics will also sell the model.
Sneaker Bar Detroit.com, where it will also be available, said the elegant rose print symbolizes how Durant "rose above" tough challenges to become the reigning MVP.
User YRS (@yUgottaH8me_315) replied to the tweet of Nike Sportswear: "We gotta bring mad people for tickets like I absolutely need these."
While some are excited to grab their pairs, some are not thrilled. "Are these coming out for grade school?" user "Tyler Ramos" posted on the comments thread of Sneakerbardetroit.com, saying that the newest colorway of KD 7 is a design for kids and not appropriate for adults.
"Nothing compared to the KD 6's. Should have made this with the same materials as the KD 6 Floral," user "jc" said. In addition, user "instacop35" vented his frustration over the KD 7's price. KD 6's Floral was marked $130 a pair.
While certainly not cheap, KD shoes remain of the cheapest shoe options available in the Nike lineup, compared to other basketball shoes such as Jordan and Lebron shoes which are mostly in the $200+ range.
The KD 7 is the seventh signature shoe of Durant and Nike. Like the KD 6 and the Kobe Bryant shoe series, KD 7 carries a low-top build and a horizontal midfoot strap, which aids in lockdown on sports and casual wears.
The shoe will surely be a hit to those waiting for this new addition to the KD collection of Nike. People would be lining up to grab this uniquely-designed kicks which will surely be a colorful addition to the Nike pairs you have at home.
The floral twist to this sole is a something people will look forward to as it adds to tha fashionability and design of the newest show release.
