Pony hair covers the latest colorway of the KD 7 EXT.

Known as the 'Longhorn State' edition, this pair was made to pay tribute to Austin, Texas, which was the place Kevin Durant called home while he attended the University of Texas. They come in a black and sail colorway, featuring an all-over pony hair upper. Black accents are found on the suede flocked midsole, mid-foot strap, tongue and leather liner. A 'branded' style Swoosh on the toe and heel represents two of KD's greatest achievements, leading all freshmen in scoring and becoming the first freshman to win the most prestigious player award that season. A full gum rubber outsole finishes this pair off.

The 'Longhorn State' Nike KD 7 EXT hits nike.com as well as select Nike Sportswear retailers on Friday, January 9 in limited quantities.
