NIKE KD14 Performance Review

When KD13 was released, many fans ridiculed the ugly design. The new released KD14 in this year has been improved. But the most concerned thing for the players is the configuration, performance, the suitable position and playing way. Let’s have a look at it today.

NIKE KD14 adds the cross strap design which is similar to the cross design of Kyrie 6. The fitness is good. The outboard TPU plate on the vamp improves the anti-rollover design and stability. The vamp has three layers. The supporting performance is good. And it has big space to offer more colorways and pattern on the vamp. The air permeability of mesh is good, and it’s durable. 

The insole of KD14 uses full-length ZOOM STROBEL cushion and CUSHLON cushioning foam. It doesn’t have the independent ZOOM Air cushion on forefoot sole. The overall cushion performance is good.

The outsole is colorful. The outsole has several patterns. The widened pattern offer multi-directional traction performance. The abrasive resistance also looks good. But it’s unsuitable to play on cement court. You can refer to the abrasive resistance of KD13.

Which position and what kind of playing way is KD14 suitable to?

KD14 is more suitable to the shooting type players. A pair of suitable basketball shoes can help you to play your own technical characteristics.
