Nike Zoom KD 14 EP 'Ron English 2'SAPPHIRE/MELON TINT-DEEP ROYAL BLUE DC9381-500
As KD’s influence around the game continues to grow, one name has caught his attention: Ron English. With his storytelling around American pop culture, the New York City-based artist has helped KD expand his eye for art collecting, and now, KD’s tapping Ron for another special KD14. Using rich, high-contrast colors like Sapphire, Melon Tint, and Deep Royal Blue, Ron has created a truly surrealist sneaker for a mind-blowing player. A textured shearling is patterned throughout the upper, giving the all-over graphic multi-dimensional depth and brilliance — just like KD’s game on the court.
Zero-Distraction Fit, Broken-In Feel
Multilayer breathable fabric in the upper is lightweight and dimensional with a broken-in feel. Added thickness in strategic areas helps to keep your foot in place by reducing small movements.
A hook-and-loop strap wraps over the top of the laces for support and a secure fit. It's a subtle nod to the strap of the KD4 and takes inspiration from the shape of the grim reaper's scythe.
Ultimate Responsive Sensation
The full-length Air Zoom Strobel unit is stitched directly to the upper. It helps cut unnecessary weight and provides full-foot responsiveness. Cushlon foam adds a soft, comfortable sensation.
Grooves and ridges in the sole help provide multidirectional traction and court feel. A stiff piece under the arch helps keep the shoe stable. Both shoes together reveal the face of a skull.
Stiff piece on the outer edge provides midfoot stability.
