Some of my personal thoughts on the Christmas KD III are that they are very light, however they are not the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. But on the other hand they are not the most uncomfortable. On a scale of 1-10 ill give them a 6/7 for comfort. However, the color of these shoes is right up my alley. Yellow, one of the colors I like to where the most, and these shoes look great with a pair of jeans or black training pants.
Some of the details about the shoe:
Color: Vibrant Yellow and Photo Blue with hints of Orange.
Kevin Durants third shoe features a full grain leather upper for durability infused with 3M high visibility in low light settings. The shoe also features flywire for lightweight support and comfort. In my personal opinion, as light as flywire is, i need something squishy like more foam between my foot and and the flywire. This shoe also sports air technology, given by its name, ZOOM. The zoom air technology is hidden on the inside of the sole in order to offer a low profile with maximum cushioning and the ultimate in lightweight performance. Zoom technology isn't just an airbag inside, it is an airbag that shifts the air.
The flywire technology, which is woven nylon fibers is seen on the upper of the shoe and it is infused to the laces. the shoe also offers an inside strap for arch support and more of connection and hold to the base of the shoe.
One thing you will notice in this shoe is the four locations of Kevin Durant. The heel features a 4 button controller like symbol with KD 35 representing Kevin Durants love for gaming. KD logo is then placed on the tongue with a hole to slide your finger into in order to help get the shoe on, and on the bottom of the shoe next to another location that says the Zoom technology. Under the arch strap the shoes also note that they were designed and engineered to the exact specifications of Kevin Durant.
In order to better understand the outsole, one must know that before he became an NBA All-Star, KD played ball in the Barry Farms Goodman League in Washington D.C. his hometown. On the bottom of the outsole there is a pattern that says "BF62" which is a pattern that pays tribute to the 62 points he scored in a game in Barry Farms. On top of that there are five lightning bolts in a semicircular patter at the forefoot that represent his team the oklahoma city thunder, each one representing a player on the court. Finally there are piano keys by the heel and midfoot to show his passion for music.
This shoe also comes with a herringbone pattern outsole for multi directional traction and flex grooves for enhanced flexibility and smooth stride, which is featured in numerous Nike training shoe styles.
At a retail price of only $88 this is a must have shoe for the basketball enthusiast.
