Hibbett, Inc., (NASDAQ:HIBB), an athletic-inspired fashion retailer with more than 1,169 Hibbett and City Gear specialty stores nationwide, announced today the launch of an exclusive new video campaign celebrating the upcoming launch of the KD17 on May 17th and May 24th.

Since first launching in 2008, there has been a lot of hype around each new release from Nikes Kevin Durant basketball franchise and we wanted to do something special for fans to build upon that excitement, through storytelling, said Sarah Sharp-Wangaard, VP Marketing, Hibbett. We created this video in partnership with Nike to showcase the relationship between an OG and the next generation following in their footsteps. Chet Holmgren has been wearing KDs throughout his young career as a nod to the icon and his idol, Kevin Durant. Chet is well on his way to making his mark as a potential NBA Rookie of the Year and the KD17 might be his new not-so-secret weapon during the playoffs.

The video, narrated by NBA veteran star and KD17 namesake, Kevin Durant, features NBA Center-Forward, Chet Holmgren of the Oklahoma Thunder. The video highlights the power of legacy and Holmgrens enthusiasm to take to the courts wearing the KD17, with its array of new basketball-centric enhancements from style, comfort and traction to support and stability. Holmgren, a rookie player has proudly worn Nike KD shoes throughout his basketball career at Gonzaga University and in the NBA.

The exclusive video features a light banter between Durant, the veteran NBA star and Holmgren, the next generation player. The video is currently on Hibbett social media channels including the Hibbett YouTube channel @HibbettSports.
