Heads up! It looks like the Nike KD 3 All-Star will be making a return this year.
The Nike KD 3 All-Star first dropped way back in 2011. The 2023 return will be the sneaker’s first ever retro release. This All-Star colorway of Kevin Durant’s KD 3 was worn by Durant during the 2011 NBA All-Star Game. Done in a Challenge Red, White, and Black color scheme, details include an upper made out of a mix of synthetic leather, mesh, and Flywire materials done in a predominantly Red hue. Contrast comes by way of the White Swoosh logos and Black detailing. Elsewhere you will find KD branded tongues atop a Red translucent outsole.
The Nike KD 3 All-Star is currently expected to release during Spring 2023 at select retailers and Nike.com. Stay tuned for additional release confirmation. For a complete guide including official photos, release dates, pricing and where to buy, visit: Nike KD 3 All-Star 2023.
Here’s your reminder that the Air Jordan 2 Lucky Green releases next month. Will you cop?
UPDATE (1/30: Retailing for $130, it has been confirmed that the Nike KD 3 All-Star 2023 will be releasing on February 10th via SNKRS.
“Get your game on in our first retro of KD’s signature shoes. Bringing back the look Durant rocked during the 2011 hoops weekend, the nearly monochromatic, Challenge Red upper delivers the slick assist your outfit needs. Fresh branding on the heel levels up your off-court style, while the full-length Zoom Air and striated graphic on the side up your cachet. No pressing pause-get ’em while you can.”
UPDATE (11/29): Slated for a February 2023 return, Nike hits us with official images of the Nike KD 3 All-Star. When these KD’s dropped back in 2011, they were a HOT commodity. Will the 2023 retro be received the same way? Although there is no denying the impact the KD 3 had, a 2023 return may not be something most current sneakerheads were craving for.
