Iced out in simpler terms, the pair is seemingly a love letter to winter, bearing light blue tones across its entire upper while contrasting through notes of wool-like textiles at its tongue. Paneled quite minimally — with the few there taking on bright whites — the upper is more so in preference of technical aesthetics as taping and gridded patterns cover across in just barely darker shade. This makes way to the profile swoosh as well while components such as the sole unit lying in compliment. Contrast stitching suture from edge to edge along the heel wrap with similarly standout type making all full aware of the Flywire tech found inside.
Appropriately dubbed the “Blue Gaze” colorway, this newest installment is painted with blue hues allowing icy tones to dominate a majority of the upper with notes of darker shades contrasting the Swoosh logos and inner Flywire tooling. A frosty-blue colorway that reflects Kevin Durant’s cool demeanor and clutch performance in high-pressure situations.More refinement to the signature shoe from Nike designer Leo Chang includes a grey tongue with chenille bulking yarn for a lace-like effect, and midfoot tooling in white contrast. Tech benefits like four-way Flywire and Zoom Air stitched closer to the foot create articulated support and cushioning.
