Is the NBA’s most well-rounded cultural ambassador Kevin Durant? Away from the court, the Brooklyn Nets star has dabbled in a variety of interests, from tech to art to cryptocurrencies. All of those lanes come together perfectly in this Nike KD 14 colorway, designed by Ron English, with the help of Nike. This Ron English x Nike KD 14 features the artist’s Light Cult Crypto Club’s signature graphics on the lacy exterior and a custom-molded mid-foot strap that joins the metaverse’s Bulbhead community. New Ron English colorways for the KD 14 are coming soon, and this one will be bright red with lightning yellow accents, followed by touches of purple to match the artist’s vibrant style.
If these KD 14s were somehow connected to the NFT world, that would be a real treat (maybe buying a pair gets you to access to a Bulbhead NFT). Nike’s investment in Roblox suggests that this type of metaverse exploration will be possible in the future, even if this KD 14 does not.
These will be available for $150 on Nike.com when they go on sale in the coming weeks.
