Shoe Forecast: A Comparison on Two “Weatherman” Shoes

The Nike Air Foamposite One “Weatherman” emerged a few weeks ago. It comes a little over a year after Kevin Durant’s “Weatherman” shoe. The Foamposite was inspired by the Nike Zoom KD IV so a comparison is only right.

In early December 2011 the KD IV “Weatherman” popped on the scene and received instant hype. The reason behind the design is that when Kevin Durant was a young boy he wanted to be a meteorologist and out came this shoe. Green covers the entire upper and the back heel features orange and yellow in a rain doppler radar design signaling rain is on its way. The same type of pattern can be seen on the translucent sole.

Foamposites usually carry a bunch of hype and one of the next foams set to release are the “Weatherman” foams. The shoe features some of the same detailing as the KD IV such as the rain doppler radar on the back side of the shoe. The radar uses blue, green, and red instead of the KD IV’s orange and yellow. The main base is white instead of green and hints of black all around the shoe. The shoe also features lightning bolts and tornado on the back pull tabs and liner compared to the cloud, sun, and lightning bolt on the insole of the KD IV.

The two shoes shares similarities and differences, how do you think it compares to the KD VI and will you be copping this model?
