Nike Zoom KD9 has already been reviewed by a lot of people.Kevin Durant is one of the bonafide leaders for Team USA on both the on-court and off-court fronts.And this “Unlimited” colorway, which grasps a hot magenta and neon green color-combo that debuted from the larger collection .

Today we are talking about it .

For the box , it is nothing special .The big logo and the signature of Kevin Durant .


Here is the picture that construction of Nike Flyknit and Zoom Air technologies.

Designed by Leo Chang, It is show the low-cut shoe features a Flyknit upper engineered down to the pixel for maximum containment. Then it features a pattern with a distinct honeycomb structure precisely knit for the multidimensional movement of basketball and Durant’s lateral quickness.


Flyknit technology  utilized which  locks down the forefoot while still allowing the foot to move naturally.And Flyknit’s efficient material  also ensures the upper is lightweight, without compromising strength. That is the best reason that I loved it . Also it is a little stiff but the Ventilation is excellent . And it is will improve the support in some parts  .

For cushioning . A visible, tapered Zoom Air unit runs from heel to toe. Full length articulated Zoom Air at that. That  cushion is completely excellent  which good spring back for unmatched response. Impact protection — Foot transitions — Responsiveness , that is amazing for the setting up. This cushion setup is great and no one will annoying

we can see the Flyknit  clearly .And the multi colorway is amazing .

The yellow logo is Gorgeous with the pink 

Moreover, the midsole is minimized to enhance the responsive sensation produced by the Zoom Air unit.That is the reason why the KD 9 ‘s support is excellent .The Phylon midsole is sculpted under the arch for a little stiffness there .

TPU bumps located towards the forefoot where the Zoom unit is segmented to provide flexibility.

16 millimeters thick at the heel and progressively narrows to 10 millimeters at the forefoot. The responsive is excellent .

The heel part is obviously TPU fixed on the outer end of the 35 KD is self-evident, as the pink color .

For the traction .The traction on the KD9 superseded my expectations on court.Though it  a little stiff .At times the rubber traction handled more than I wanted it to. The colorway is beautiful anyway .


For fitting . it is  true size . I just buy the size that as usually . but for the wider footer , maybe you can buy over a half size because of the lockdown of shoes .

Overall , the Nike Zoom KD9 is a step in the proper direction on the future of basketball shoes and innovation. The excellent material and cushioning , especially the zoom unit performance well.Actually, this is the best Nike shoe in years.
