Dressed in tones of blue is the "Year of the Dragon" Nike Zoom KD IV, inspired by the mythical water dragon. The cross-strap, in combination with the wave pattern on the tongue and the laser-etched blue shadows, creates a unique rippling effect. A water dragon surrounding the KD logo on the heel highlights Chinese association. Dominated by light blue and light mango, the shoe is also symbolic of the Oklahoma City Thunder. All the elements create another highly-anticipated release for OKC's sharp-shooter, who happened to be born during a Year of the Dragon on the Chinese Zodiac cycle.
Look for the Year of the Dragon Nike Zoom KD IV to hit retail in February.
