Though the Nike KD V dropped for the first time at the tail end of 2012, the #KDISNOTNICE campaign only officially began this week. The KD V “Gullwing” or “Blue Ice” is the pair that’s featured in the Nike X Foot Locker commercial below. The Gullwing is an iconic car made by Mercedes that is best known for its doors which are hinged at the roof making them open upwards. These doors are known in the car industry as Gull-wing doors. However, the KD V “Gullwing” is modeled more after the car’s paint job and interior than its doors. With a sleek paint job and bold orange interior, the KD V “Gullwing” aims to mimic this look with its own ice blue/squadron blue-total orange colorway finished off with some speckles on the midsole.
The Nike KD V “Gullwing”/”Ice Blue” (or whatever you prefer to call it) will release today, January 7, at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and online at Footlocker.com. They will retail for $115. Click here to purchase online. This release is also available in kids pre and grade school sizes.
