Inspired by NBA's Kevin Durant, Nike Air Zoom KD9 is a combination of evolution and innovation. It has Durant’s trademark versatility and impressive court coverage, as well as the comfort and responsiveness of Nike's Flyknit and Zoom Air technologies. 

The KD9 will be globally available for athletes of all ages beginning June 20.

Meanwhile, the Nike Hyperdunk 2016, which combines the ultra-high Nike Flyknit and a full-length Zoom Air unit, aims to serve the modern game's speed, lateral cutting, elevation and impact. 

Nike designer Leo Chang enhanced the shoe's lockdown support, dynamic stretch and breathability using Nike's signature Flywire cables. 

It will be globally available on July.

The lightweight, tailored jersey features stretch knit coupled with an engineered mesh -- a product of rigorous sweat-mapping studies.

The shorts, on the other hand, introduce the FlyVent waistband that promises to eliminate the discomfort of traditional basketball waistbands. It is also 35% more breathable that the one released in 2012.
