A detailed look at the Nike KD Trey 5 VII.
With his twelfth signature in the books, and still one of the best basketball shoes of 2019, can Kevin Durant’s entry model, the Nike KD Trey 5 VII, carry its own weight?
The first basketball shoe to introduce Nike’s Renew cushioning, a derivative of Nike’s React, the dual density foam setup feels promising. Materials aren’t anything to write home about, but as an entry level shoe they should get the job done. Traction is my biggest worry as the pattern may be great, but the rubber compound for most colorways will be translucent rubber — which tends to pale in comparison to solid rubber.
At $90 the Nike KD Trey 5 VII feels like they could end up being a surprise hit for 2019 — fingers crossed. Hopefully they pan out once we start testing them on-court.
