Nike KD

Kevin Durant is one of those athletes that is instantly recognisable, and so are his signature shoes, the Nike KD. Here’s what you need to know about the KD range:

Designer Leo Chang wanted to create a range of shoes that captured Kevin Durant’s personality and style; they’ve been working together to create KDs since 2009.

When designing the KD1, the whole team creating the shoe visited Durant’s neighbourhood where he grew up so they could get a true feel of the player’s roots.

When Kevin Durant was first selected to play for the Seattle SuperSonics, he scored 18 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals against the Denver Nuggets. Soon after that he was named NBA Rookie of the Year and was one of the only teenagers to average at least 20 points per game over an entire season… no wonder Nike snapped at the chance to collaborate with the athlete and create the Nike KD range.

Durant’s successful basketball career has been almost exactly mirrored by the success of his shoe namesake, the Nike KD. Durant exploded onto the court back in 2007 and first earned a contract with Nike shortly after that in 2009. Like his entrance into basketball, the success of the KD1 was instant. Since then the Nike KD has gone from strength to strength, soared in popularity and seen countless silhouettes and colourways.

Starting out as a high-top basketball shoe, the Nike KD has slowly evolved into a low-top sports shoe that, although designed for the court, is perfect for most sports. The Nike KD has always been renowned for being a brave but stylish shoe, making it perfect for both in and out of the gym.
