By now, sneakerheads who have been copping colorways from the Kevin Durant signature line should probably know that Nike releases a floral iteration of the latest KD model every year. Last year’s Nike KD 7 EXT colorways were quite creative and model featured various unique prints. Obviously the 2015 Nike release dates would be no different and it is the EXT edition of silhouette that gets the “Floral” treatment and is available at select Nike retailers.Before this yearly “Floral” rendition surfaced on the Internet, the Nike KD 7 EXT had already hit the shelves in the “Longhorn State” colorway. Many sneakerheads are probably even comparing the KD7 “Floral” to the KD 6 EXT “Floral” or the KD7 Premium “Aunt Pearl.” However, this flowery and multicolored sneaker appears to be quite ideal for the upcoming warm, summer months ahead. Like previous “Floral” KD shoes, the entire textile upper of this year’s installment is covered in a large, vintage flowery motif and print that appear to have taken their inspiration from fauna and roses.
Apart from colorful floral upper, prominent complementing hues that make an appearance on this sneaker include Hazelnut featured on the inner lining, midfoot strap and tongue. The KD branding on the tongue and the laces are both dressed up in navy and the clear Nike swoosh makes further enhances the lifestyle vibes that this sneaker gives off. The finishing touch has been added to this pair in the form of the white midsole, which contains a red-hued Nike Zoom unit, and an icy, translucent outsole.
Many sneaker collectors who share a fondness for the Kevin Durant signature sneaker line spend each year waiting for Nike to drop the yearly KD “Floral” colorway. Hopefully, this year’s installment has held their attention long enough to make them want to grab it. They can cop the Nike KD7 “Flora” right away since it already hit the shelves on February 12th, 2015.
