Bradley Beal’s rookie season saw him mix up his shoe game, which includes wearing the Nike KD 5.
Kevin Durant’s 5th signature sneaker utilizes a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for a bouncy feeling in that section. A visible Air Max unit finally added impact protection in the heel after the previous budget-friendly KDs forewent heel cushioning. Hyperfuse materials were the wave back in 2012, and this sneaker stuck with the trend on the upper. The KD 5 notably features an external heel counter that helps ankles from rolling over.
