With the Nike KD 7 Elite “Team” making its initial debut recently, the next variation of the Nike KD 7 is expected to arrive soon, which is dubbed “Flight” or “Thunderbolt.”
Perhaps as a nod to Kevin Durant’s team, Oklahoma City Thunder, although not precisely in terms of colors, the sneaker boasts a predominantly Charcoal Grey hue across its Hyperfuse and Hyperposite upper, while a graphic of lightning bolts are imprinted across the rear in contrasting University Red to correlate with the theme. Reinforced by a Dove Grey-colored midsole equipped with a visible Zoom Air unit in the heel, the component is adhered to a White outsole to top off its makeup.
Final details include its distinct arching strap on the midfoot, a Metallic Silver Swoosh, in addition to Light Retro and University Red hits gracing the flywire, laces, tongue tab and inner lining.
I’m not a fan of the KD 7 but this colorway is quite appealing. I like the colors utilized throughout which gives it that pop, while keeping it understated.
