The Nike KD 10 will be getting the popular triple black treatment next this Fall 2017 and it’s dropping in a couple of weeks. Kevin Durant’s signature basketball sneaker is simply covered in a black and dark grey colorway scheme across its Flyknit upper. Matching laces, branding on the heel and rubber sole with Zoom Air cushioning completes the tonal look altogether.
Nike announced the newest colorway of Durant's signature KD 10 shoe on Tuesday, a red and black flyknit shoe with a frosty white sole, dubbed the "KDX Red Velvet." And in the picture of the announcement, the shoe is surrounded by red velvet cupcakes. "Cupcake" became the rallying cry for Thunder fans in Durant's return to Oklahoma City last season, with fans chanting it while Durant shot free throws, cupcake shirts scattered all over the arena and one fan even dressing up in a full cupcake costume. The new colorway isn't Durant's first move at turning the cupcake narrative on its head. After the Warriors' emphatic win in Durant's return to OKC, he and his teammates celebrated by nabbing some of the cupcake shirts and wearing them postgame. Durant was spotted this offseason wearing a hat with a cupcake (topped with a ring). Now he has custom cupcake shoes and the ultimate kicker: He's even making money off it.

Covering the word of contempt is yellow text listing KD’s massive stat lines from all five games of the Finals versus the Cavs, proving that facts matter, opinions don’t.
