LeBron James and Kevin Durant and unquestionably 1a and 1b on Nike’s order of importance, but they took different routes to climb to their respective points of success. While LeBron James was a major focus on the marketing side of things, the Nike KD took a rather inconspicuous route with a bargain price-point and relatively quiet marketing push. Still, their resumes up to that point were eerily similar, and now that Durant and LeBron are ready to battle it for the true #1 spot of Nike signature shoes, let’s take a look back at the first six of Nike KD and LeBron.

One of the key contributors to a sneaker’s success is the brand’s involvement in pushing the product. As mentioned earlier, the KD line started off with small beginnings, while LeBron’s first appearance with Nike had him looking like a godly figure. It appears that there’s some level of advantage on King James’ side, but it’s clear that KD’s first sixth were far more successful and may potentially outgrow the LeBron line as the top dog. See our comparisons of each Nike signature installment below, and give us your thoughts on each match-up.

LBJ = The swooshes flagship line. KD = entry level plastic kicks. This one ain't even close.

Kd!!! The kd 4,5, and 6 are legit. Only pair up there with those is the lebron 6. Lebrons didn't get hot until the 7.

You can't compare these 2 shoes, Lebron's were created in a generation where they were nice. KD's came much later than the Lebron's. Style changes over time and more recent shoes look nicer than older ones. Both were great shoes during their time

@sneakernews all these dudes on something... Lebron easily. 2-4 and even 6 had the game on lock at their times. Only #6 for KD
