Nike debuted the KD VII unlike any other sneaker launch we've seen before. The shoe was first unveiled to the world in a press conference with Durant and lead Nike designer of the shoe, Leo Chang. Where Nike also changed the game at launch, we debuting five different colorways of the KD VII, all which had a distinct story and inspiration behind the colorway. We've seen the first four colorways come and go this summer, now we get a detailed look at the final installment, the KD VII "Easy Money".
While KD is still in limbo between sneaker brands, and wondering whether Nike will match the 10-year, $285 million dollar contract from Under Armour, the inspiration behind this shoe could change as it seems whatever KD touches is "Easy Money". The shoe was inspired by US currency, with the green look, and the lines you'll find on real US dollars. The shoe also ties back to KD's weatherman dream, as the connection with Ben Franklin is made with the story of him flying a kite with a string attached and striking lightning.
The KD VII "Easy Money" will be available beginning September 10, at the Nike Store for $150.
