In addition to the newly launched KD 7 sneaker, the Nike Vision arm is launching a signature optical collection for reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant. The collaboration consists of two unisex styles: an adult sunglass called the NK 7230 KD, as well as a Young Athlete design called the NK 5530 KD.

The NK 7230 KD features a classic, vintage-inspired square shape, as well as injected temples and pin hinge construction. In addition to a Nike logo on the outer arms, his KD logo is display on the inner portion. It will be available in rich colorations such as Black and Noble Red; Tokyo Tortoise and Raw Umber; and Midnight Navy with Tropical Teal ... and retail for $245 USD.

The second style, the NK 5530 KD is a versatile design ideal for teenagers and adults with petite builds. Spring hinges provide durability on the eyewear, which is also equipped with an occipital fit temple design. For this model, the logos are switched -- the KD is on the outer temple, while the Nike logo is placed on the inside of the arm. It will come in two colorways: Navy, Tortoise and Tropical Teal and Black and Noble Red... and will retail for $185.

The NK 7230 KD launches in Oct., while the NK 5530 KD will be available beginning in January 2015 at select optical providers.
