Guide to Nike Kevin Durant Shoes

Kevin Durant is an established superstar player in the NBA and still basically has his whole career ahead of him. At only 25 and just entering his peak years, Kevin Durant is already one of the best players in the league. Because of his immense popularity, tremendous scoring ability and the Nike brand, his signature shoe line, the KD, is an appealing option for casual basketball fans, Oklahoma City Thunder supporters and sneakerheads.

As a rookie for the Seattle SuperSonics, Kevin Durant signed the second-largest rookie endorsement deal, behind LeBron James. The second overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft declined a more lucrative deal with Adidas to sign a seven-year, $60 million deal with Nike. The Adidas deal was reportedly for $70 million and seven years. By the time his first shoe was released, the team had already made the move from Seattle to Oklahoma City. Despite playing for a small market team, Kevin Durant is a unique star who has remained humble and hungry, and is well-liked among fans across the league.

The KD line still has not approached the same level as other Nike signature shoe lines, like the Jordan, the LeBron or the Kobe. Part of that can be blamed on his lack of titles, as well as the OKC market where he plays. Despite being a basketball shoe, the KD has transitioned to a low-top design, similar to the Kobe. Additionally, the shoes are some of the cheapest available options in the Nike basketball lineup. Originally, Kevin Durant shoes were under $100 a pair. That changed with the Nike KD V, when they were raised to $115. The Nike KD VI increased to $130 at the base level. While certainly not cheap, the Kevin Durant shoes are more reasonable than the other top basketball shoes from Nike, which are mostly in the $200 range.

Two examples of each edition of the Kevin Durant shoes can be seen below, including an image of him wearing the shoes. The sneakers are listed in chronological order and include the season that each version was featured.
