The storm is coming T…

Like the deceptively calm nature before a storm, Kevin Durant can strike spontaneously and from anywhere on the court. At one moment he may appear cool and at-ease, but within a second he can instantly strike for 20 points in a quarter with lightning-quick decision making. A parallel storyline built on the weather narrative woven into Durant’s seventh signature shoe, the KD7 Calm Before the Storm is inspired by Durant as a force that has steadily built into a dangerous threat on the court. The shoe’s grey and pink colorway suggests a tranquil horizon before an impending storm. Personal cues that are featured on each KD7 include a silhouette of Durant’s home state of Maryland embedded on the outsole; and the names of his mother Wanda, his grandmother Barbara, his father Wayne and his brother Tony are featured on the forefoot strap. The KD7 Calm Before the Storm launches in limited quantities on Saturday, August 16 at select retail locations and nike.com.-TO
