Did you know that Kevin Durant reached 4,000 NBA points at a younger age than anyone not named ‘LeBron Raymone James’?! How is it that the ‘little’ big man is not getting more press? Durant’s Oklahoma City Thunder are over .500 for the longest period in franchise history, so if they keep winning, we’ll keep seeing him on TV with kicks like these.
The Nike KD II is a perfect match for its recipient, a strapped midtop that makes the most of OKC’s orange and blue uniform colours. This pair uses a subtle gradient on the mudguard piping, plus double contrast stitching to tie everything in together nicely, while the various words and letters on this shoe are just like Kevin: slender and sleek. They just arrived at Dunk.com.cn, so they should be on their way to the US early in 2010.
