The early frontrunner for signature shoe of the year may be the Nike Zoom KD IV, which has made the jump from bargain bin to instant sell-outs with an impressive lineup of colorways and concepts. Next up is the "Year of the Dragon" colorway, which seems poised for fanfare similar to that of the NERF, Weatherman and Christmas styles.
Designed in tribute to the next phase of the Chinese calendar, the shoe sports a fiery tonal blue upper, accented by Bright Mango on various Swoosh branding points and the interior. Dragon graphics and other details factor in on the cross-strap, tongue, lining and heel. A blue translucent rubber outsole finishes things off below.
Look for these new Kevin Durant shoes to touch down at Nike retailers next month.
