Summary of 2 Expert Reviews:

Pros:

Top-tier traction
Soft & comfortable cushioning

CONS:

Very cheap materials
Not very stable or supportive

Performance of the Nike KD Trey 5 VII:

Kevin Durant's latest signature model has top-tier traction with a lot of stopping power and very little dust collection. The cushioning is soft and comfortable, maybe even too soft for quick and shifty guards. The KD Trey 5 VII is a budget model, and it really shows in the upper materials which look and feel super cheap in-hand but perform decently. A major downside of this shoe is the lacking support and stability that comes from an imperfect fit, narrow base and upper materials that don't provide a ton of containment. Overall, the KD Trey 5 is a decent performer for lighter players who don't rely on explosive lateral movements.

Even for only $90, I wouldn't recommend this shoe. The materials are absolute trash and there are just too many stability and containment issues.

Top tier traction! Violent bite and squeak, zero dust collection, and very durable.

The translucent rubber works really well on clean courts and the dust pickup on dirty courts isn't bad either.

I didn't feel stable laterally because of the lack of an outrigger and the very soft cushioning.

The materials don't offer enough containment and I had some side-to-side movement on the footbed.

The fit is just super sloppy, there is a lot of dead space in the toe box area and the materials don't conform to your feet at all.

The rubber is very durable and will work outdoors for a long time, the upper materials probably won't last that long.

The rubber is really hard so it should last a long time outdoors.
