As part of the Art of a Champion Collection we’ll take a closer look at the Nike Zoom KD 4 Battle Tested.
Nike Zoom KD 4 Battle Tested is one of 15 new sneakers releasing from the new collection. All the shoes in the collection are inspired by moments that cement members of NIKE, Inc.’s extended family among basketball royalty. While not every moment led directly to a title, each is intrinsic to the respective athlete’s journey toward glory.
Kevin Durant reached his first NBA Finals with a single-game and series performance that showcased smooth, otherworldly abilities and announced his arrival to the planet. Facing the daunting Spurs and their championship pedigree in the Western Conference Finals in his KDIV, KD stared down an 18-point halftime deficit in Game 6 and battled back to win on the strength of 34 points and 14 rebounds. Sweeping Dirk Nowitzki’s defending-champion Mavericks, then sending Kobe’s Lakers on summer vacation before dropping the mighty Spurs made for a tremendous trifecta — KD’s Thunder had eliminated the only three teams that had represented the West in the Finals for the past 13 years. Despite ultimately losing the Finals to LeBron’s Heat, KD led all players with 30.6 points per game on jaw-dropping 54.8-percent shooting and showed the world the dominance he would display five years later when he hoisted his first trophy.
