In the 2017, the Nike KD 9 Elite “Time to Shine” was released as part of a collection that honored teams in the NCAA basketball tournament. With metallic and iridescent branded accents, the version of Kevin Durant's signature shoe was designed to represent the many shining moments in the tournament. The Nike KD 9 Elite features a woven Flyknit construction in all-over grey color blocking. The laces double as a Dynamic Flywire lockdown system and full-length Zoom Air cushioning system brings a pop of red. The performance basketball sneaker is then topped off with an iridescent metallic Swoosh.
