Return of the strap: Introducing the Nike KD14

The NBA landscape looked a lot different in June of 2014.

San Antonio had just rocked the back-to-back champion Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, avenging its loss from the previous season.

LeBron James was mere weeks away from announcing in Sports Illustrated his return to Cleveland, the city he’d spurned just four years earlier.

Oklahoma City still had its dual weapons, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. KD’s signature shoe still had a strap.

Well times have sure changed. Russ is on the Wizards. LeBron is a championship-winning Laker. KD has two rings and two Finals MVP trophies…and his Nike model has a midfoot strap again.

We’re now about to witness the arrival of the Nike KD14, dropping 5/1 at JD Sports in a classic ‘Black/White’ colorway.

Featuring the return of that strap as well as design cues from Swoosh models past such as the Nike Air Presto and Bruin, the KD14 incorporates heritage and technology all in one.

Once again the Nike hoops division has brought back a full-length Zoom Air strobel, while an engineered mesh upper keeps the foot stable and secure in the heat of battle.

Throwback to the summer of 2014 when the Nike KD14 ‘Black/White’ releases in Men’s sizing on 5/1 at jdsports.com.
