Nike KD 1

KD's KicksKD’s Kicks

Today Kevin Durant’s signature shoe, the KD1, hit the office. This shoe is nothing like I’ve seen before. The design has a bit of a futuristic feel to it.

The shoe looks really sleek and it is extremely lightweight, maybe that is because of the limited stitching. Like the Hyperdunk, the KD 1 seems to have been constructed out of three main pieces. Unlike other sneakers that consist of many different parts sewn together the minimal pieces cut down on the bulkiness.

My favorite aspect of the shoe has to be the colors. I really am indifferent in regards to the Oklahoma City Thunder’s unis, but the teal and the orange/yellow pop on the sneakers. Expect these to hit the streets in Feb.

    UGLIEST colors.
    these could be hot in a nice colorway, but this one is just brutally ugly

    How exactly does a player on a 2-19 team get a signature shoe? I thought there were expectations to achieve a sig shoe. Durant might be exciting, but comparatively, even Big Baby is exciting comparatively to the Thunder.

    Straight out of the 80′s

    Those are some Miami Vice shoes,

    I would rock those, they look light and sleek,

    They’d be perfect if you ever balled in a rolling fog

    They look like boxing shoes. Even so, they look better than the last KD shoe.
