Nike Zoom KD9 Preview

I rarely talk about news except for the ones that actually excite me. Being a basketball performance shoe geek the preview of the upcoming KD signature sneaker has to be one of them.
Nike PR Director Heidi Burgett has recently given a preview on how the upcoming Nike Zoom KD9 will look like and guys, I'm a fan! Although a little gummy model is all that was shown, the silhouette is clearly visible: The sole will still have full length Zoom to keep the bounce. But let's be honest, what we actually care about are changes. The most interesting change has to be the fact that the new Nike Zoom KD9 seems to be more of a mid top than its super low forerunners. Material wise, I hope that the upper will still be either Flyweave or thick Flyknit that will keep the foot locked in.

Update: Russ Bengtson from Complex has just updated a picture of the new shoe on his Instagram profile and it looks like I was right about the upper being about a woven / knit material. What do you think?
