A key component in Nike’s 12 Soles holiday collection, the Christmas iteration of Kevin Durant’s ninth signature shoe has an interesting moniker to match its equally alluring burgundy palette.
The Nike KD 9 “The Sauce” elects for a Deep Burgundy and Metallic Red Bronze Flyknit upper with Durant’s No. 35 at the tongue. Full-length Zoom Air rests below while KD’s logo hits the heel in white.
Nike Basketball is yet to detail the origins of this unique nickname, but surely more will be revealed in the weeks to come. For now, give the Nike KD 9 “The Sauce” a look below and calendar the December 15 release date.
