Nike's KD 5 "Energy" inspired by Nerf!

Like many of us, we love Nerf :)

Nike, the sportswear maker, has taken that love further, and created a homage to Nerf! Kevin Durant has been sporting them at Charity games and various other events so you may already know what i'm talking about!

If you are familiar, or even an owner of - the  Nike KD 5 "Energy" (below), it has been called many things, but the maker says its inspired by the Nerf sports toys.

I called Nike (Uk) for more pics or info on these trainers (sneakers for our counterparts across the pond!). They told me that the NBA lockout might be in effect, but the Nerf basketball season is running all year round.

I'm not going to lie, these look pretty cool summer wear.
But what gives the real Nerf feeling in the KD 5 "Energy" range? Kevin Durant said that he wanted to say "Thank you" to the childhood toy that gave him enjoyment and inspired him to be a Professional Sportsman. Take a look below for more pics:
This set comes complete with its own Nerf basketball and its own Nerf dunk game (dunk board comes part of the packaging!).
Originally seen back in October, they are set for release (rather short notice right?) now, but expect these to be limited edition!
Love them personally!! Will you get a pair?
