New Jordans 2016, Kevin Durant showcased that he's still the same superstar he was at OKC while joining an already super stacked team, the Golden State Warriors, over this last week, but off the court he's going back to his roots with his latest sneaker release. The Nike KD 9 GS "Fire & Ice" is the latest from the KD line which will be a GS exclusive and will debut in November. This KD 9 will come mismatched in Blue which represents the Winter days Kevin Durant spent as a kid working on his game in Maryland and the Red represents the how he poured warm water on his hands afterwards that created a burning sensation. Dubbed, "Fire & Ice", this release is inspired by a young, scrappy Durant in Maryland honing on his basketball skills in the winter. Determined to play through the freezing cold, he'd warm up his frigid hands by rinsing them in hot water giving a burning sensation. So as a homage to this childhood memory, both extremes are represented by mismatched colorways coming in red and the other in icy blue.
New Air Jordan Shoes, KD was gifted with a special "Fire & Ice" edition of his KD9 silhouette. The sneakers are sporting a different color on each shoe, one being blue and the other being vibrant red. Kevin Durant and Nike are teaming up once again on the KD 9 for great colorways that will, unfortunately, only be found in kids sizes. Nicknamed “Fire and Ice” Pack, this KD 9 release takes the on-court ready silhouette and covers it in an Icy Blue and Fire Red. The history behind the two colors goes back to when Durant would practice ball in Maryland during the winter. After playing outside and freezing his hands, Durant would run hot water over his hands, creating a sort of burning feeling. During the cold winter months, KD would often pour hot waters on his hard to endure the frigid conditions and continue training. The colorway features a different design on the left sneaker than the right. The left features a solid blue upper with offsetting red accents on the tongue and heel. Meanwhile, the right features red composition with blue accents that stand out among the bright upper.
Jordans 2017 Ever since Kevin Durant announced that he would be leaving OKC and heading to the Bay Area, a lot of people couldn't wait for the season to start to see how things would play out.

From being the MVP of the 2014 NBA season to his countless All-NBA Team awards, these accomplishments reflect years of grueling drudgery in his earlier years. As a kid, Durant's hometown of Baltimore, Maryland encountered harsh weather conditions during the winter but that wouldn't stop Durant from pursuing his dreams. While practicing his shots out on the courts, his hands would freeze from the frigid temperatures and in an attempt to warm up his hands, he would often pour hot water on them.
