Nike KD 15 ‘Aimbot’

The Nike KD15 provides exactly what every basketball player needs: plenty of responsiveness, good grip and a drop-in feel. Less material underfoot and on the upper helps reduce distraction, while optimizing energy return and increasing all-round comfort – which is what matters most for players like Kevin Durant who never stops moving. The laces are threaded through the side wings. Full-length cushioned foam with a visible Air Zoom Strobel unit provides a double layer of cushioning that’s soft and smooth. The Air Zoom Strobel eliminates the need for extra layers and delivers incredible energy return right under your foot. Reduced layers on the upper reduce weight to increase comfort. The light lemon color is interrupted with multicolored Swoosh sign and molded pink KD logo on top of the tongue. “EASY” is molded into the rubber of the sole and pays homage to KD’s simple, effortless play.

Nike Cosmic Unity ‘Space Hippie’

The Nike Cosmic Unity Basketball Shoe is a basketball shoe that gives you energy and comfort on the court. The sleek and very comfortable silhouette is made from at least 25% recycled waste material. From the idea of ecological durability to its realization, the creators of these sneakers have made considerable efforts to turn used and discarded material into functional ones. The Air Zoom Strobel unit allows you to recover energy and always have a fresh step, and at the same time, it has 20% recycled material in its composition. The thin but very durable sole features partially recycled rubber that provides exceptional traction during attacks and sudden changes of direction. Recycled materials are also part of the upper, midsole and lacing system, all with the goal of raising global environmental awareness.
