The Nike KD Trey 5 V is a mid-top shoe with mesh and fuse overlays. The outsole has a herringbone traction which delivers a top-notch court grip. The midsole has the Zoom technology and Phylon for a comfortable ride. The laces on the lateral side and the outrigger on the midsole work together to provide lockdown and stability to the foot.

Cushion. The midsole of the Nike KD Trey 5 V has the Zoom technology in the forefoot area and a full-length Phylon. Phylon is the go-to EVA foam of Nike, and it is light and responsive. The Zoom unit provides responsiveness that supports the quick multidirectional footwork of the athlete.

Traction. The Nike KD Trey 5 V has a wavy herringbone pattern on the outsole. The good court grip of the shoe model comes from traction pattern being widely spaced.

Length and Width. Like most shoe models, the Nike KD Trey 5 V is designed as true to size. However, there are users who say  that the shoe model has a lot of dead space on the toes if they go true to size. New buyers have two options: choose their size and double up their socks or go down half a size.

Lockdown. To achieve the desired fit, the oval shoelaces of the Nike KD Trey 5 V can be adjusted. The wires on the lateral side of the shoe aid in keeping the foot in place. The padded tongue and inner collar assist in keeping the foot down while providing support.

The upper of the Nike KD Trey 5 V consists of tightly-woven mesh and fuse overlays. The mesh keeps the air flow steady on the foot. The fuse overlays and the toe cap provide durability to the shoe. The inner collar of the shoe has thick padding that provides ankle support and comfort. The outrigger on the midsole helps prevent ankle roll injuries.

The Nike KD Trey 5 V is a classic mid-top that comes in different colorways. The Nike Swoosh is found on both sides of the shoe. A NIKE ZOOM callout is located on the medial side to showcase the technology. Kevin Durant’s logo is found on the tongue and outsole. His jersey number is found on the lateral side of the shoe.
