The Nike KD 9 Texas is the first Nike KD University of Texas-themed official shoe to hit global retail.
Debuting on the University of Texas men’s basketball team this Saturday, the Nike KD 9 “Texas” shoe pays homage to Kevin Durant’s beloved alma mater.
“Attending UT was one of the best experiences of my life and launching the Nike KD 9 back in Austin this past June reflects my love for the college experience I had 10 years ago,” says Durant.
This Texas-themed Nike KD 9 features an off-White Sail Flyknit upper with Burnt Orange contrasting accents, along with the number “35” on the tongue stitching. The heel tab also includes “Texas” that stays true to the theme.
