Nike Vision And Kevin Durant Team Up Again To Release New Collection Of Optical Eyewear For Fall 2015


For Fall 2015, Nike Vision and professional basketball player (and 2013-2014 Most Valuable Player) Kevin Durant announce the newest edition of their collaborative eyewear. Last year marked the first partnership between Durant and Nike Vision; the inaugural collection featured one adult style and one young athlete style. The Fall 2015 collection will feature an expanded offering, comprised of three adult styles and three children’s styles. The eyewear’s color ways will sync up to Durant’s latest sneaker, the KD8, which features Nike’s Flyweave technology and released in Summer 2015.

We’re thrilled to partner with Kevin again, to not only produce another collection, but to elevate it to another level,” said Steve Tripi, Marketing Director at Marchon, Nike Vision’s licensing company. “We’re certainly breathing new life into this partnership by offering something special for KD fans.”

The color story for the new collection was inspired by the bright, playful colors that Nike has incorporated into KD’s past shoe and apparel collections. The latest optical offering will feature the following styles for men, women and kids:


The NK 35KD will feature a combination metal frame front and customized laminated ZYL for durability. A metal eye rim is complemented with KD’s logo laser-etched on the core wire, and KD’s signature on the right temple tip. The NK 35KD will be available in three color ways.


Available in two color ways, the NK 36KD will feature a customized acetate frame design, the NK 36KD is an adult style that features the KD logo laser-etched on core wire, KD’s signature on the right temple tip and a jeweled plaque swoosh on the logo.


Available in two color ways, the NK 37KD is comprised of a customized double laminated acetate frame design, KD’s logo on core wire and his signature on the right temple tip. This modified-rectangle shape also features a jeweled plaque swoosh logo.

The NK 3KD is a modified version of the adult NK 3KD style and will be available in two color options.

NK 4KD, MSRP  (Young Athletes)

With its customized acetate frame design and spring hinges to ensure comfort and durability, the NK 4D is a must-have for the back-to-school season. The KD logo is featured on the outside temple tip, complemented by KD’s signature on the inner right temple tip. The NK 4KD will be available in two color ways.

NK 5KD, MSRP (Young Athletes)

Nike Vision will also create 35 exclusive kits featuring an exclusive leather box complete with KD’s logo and signature, correlating directly to Durant’s jersey number 35. Each kit will contain all three available color ways and will be numbered one to 35. Marchon will reward kit number one to a lucky winner, via a sweepstakes on the Nike Vision web site.
