Kevin Durant Launches ‘Find My Backpack’ Twitter Campaign

This past weekend, KD launched his “find my backpack” campaign with Nike Basketball. Throughout the season, KD and Nike Basketball will be dropping KD backpacks at markets across the country. When KD announces a drop off point, the first person to find the backpack and follow the attached instructions gets to keep the contents of the backpack and have a pair of one of the limited edition Nike Zoom KD IV colorways (Nerfs, Coppers, etc) sent their way.

The first drop was in New York city, and the winner of the contest was @msilber29. He gets to keep the KD backpack as well as the Nike Basketball Never Stops T-Shirt and Skullcandy Headphones found in the backpack. He’ll also have a pair of Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Nerf’ colorway sent his way.

Make sure you follow KD and Nike Basketball on twitter to find out where the next backpack drop will be. Your city could be next!

While the Zoom KD IV has seemingly stolen the signature spotlight from the rest of Nike Basketball’s marquee athletes this fall, most of that attention can be directly attributed to the “Nerf” themed version launching today.

With an aggressive concord purple and bright crimson base, the story most certainly also goes well beyond just the sneaker, as one of the brand’s most evolved boxes makes its way to retail. The damn thing turns into a Nerf hoop itself.
