No, the Nike KD 9 Texas is not a player exclusive. As a matter of fact, the shoe that pays home to Kevin Durant’s alma mater will actually be releasing to the public. The Texas-themed Nike KD 9 pays home to the time (1 year) Durant spent attending and playing for the Longhorns.
Durant has this to say about his school..
“Attending UT was one of the best experiences of my life and launching the KD 9 back in Austin this past June reflects my love for the college experience I had 10 years ago,”
The Nike KD 9 Texas comes in a White and Burnt Orange colorway, with standout features such as the “3” and “5” on the tongue and the Texas branding on the heel pull tabs. Set to release on Match 10th, if you’d like to see them in action beforehand, make sure you see the UT women’s team wearing them on Saturday, March 4, at the Big 12 tournament.
