Scans of co-branded Texas KD 9s are making the rounds.
As reported last fall, the newly signed deal between the University of Texas and Nike is expected to include an exclusive line of Kevin Durant branded apparel for athletes. Today, scans of what are believed to be the first group of sneakers for the collection are floating around the web. While Durant has had sneakers in colorways inspired by his alma mater in the past, these mockups show the Nike KD 9 and KD Trey 5 with official school logos on the heels. As part of the agreement, a portion of the royalties from Durant Texas products sold to the public will be kicked back to the school. No word on a sneaker release date for either of these two sneakers at the moment. Sketches of the upcoming KD 9 and KD Trey 5 IV Texas colorways. Love the grey ones.
