Today’s Forecast: The Nike KD 4 “Weatherman” Is Set to Touch Down

Originally launched in 2011, the "Weatherman" KD 4 holds a special place in the hearts of sneaker enthusiasts and hoops heads alike. Its vibrant color scheme and unique design pay homage to Kevin Durant's passion for meteorology, a passion that likely would’ve been Durant’s career had it not been for his immense talent on the court.

The upcoming rerelease of the "Weatherman" KD 4 not only celebrates Durant's love for weather forecasting but also invites a new generation of hoopers to revel in its legacy. With its striking "Lush Green" Hyperfuse upper and contrasting black forefoot straps, the sneaker exudes a sense of energy and purpose, much like the storm systems Durant once studied.

However, the magic lies in the intricate details adorning the heels and tongues. Inspired by Doppler radar imagery, a mesmerizing print in shades of "Team Orange," "Lush Green," and "Volt" adds depth and dimension to the design, capturing the dynamic nature of weather patterns in motion.

Beneath the surface, the "Weatherman" KD 4 boasts more than just style. Its foam midsole units house hidden Zoom Air technology, providing responsive cushioning and support for the hardwood. Meanwhile, semi-translucent rubber outsoles proudly display the same Doppler pattern as the upper, bringing the meteorological motif full circle.

Will you be looking to grab a pair? The Nike KD 4 “Weatherman” will be available on Tuesday, May 21st, in-store and online at for a retail price of $130.
