2) Boi-1da x Nike KD 15
The pairing of Nike and Kevin Durant on the new KD15 silhouette already sent shockwaves through the footwear industry earlier this year.

This co-designed multicolored variant will go live on the SNKRS app and other outlets on August 17. These eye-catching shoes will retail for $160 a pair.
The upper of the Boi-1da x Nike KD 15 has a dense web, thanks to a swirl of double-layered mesh in black and green. The Nike Swoosh is split in green and pink on the matte-finished black support wings, which also feature a similar swirl pattern embossed inside the cage.
The upper part of the tongue is crafted in perforated black leather with Boi-1da’s signature embroidered in orange on the right tongue and the KD logo stitched in green on the left tongue. The mesh part of the tongue is surrounded by black and green laces.
