Nike’s interesting use of ultra-modern typefaces on their upcoming KD2 is quite similar to Kevin Durant himself. Both are simultaneously hard to see, but when present are smoother than pretty much anything we’ve ever seen, all while being so frail we wonder if they’ll blow away. This is especially true of the ‘Two’ script below the medial strap’s ‘KD’ insignia, which is smaller on the shoe than it appears in this description. Another cool use of text is the unmistakable Futura Book (think ‘Calvin Klein Jeans’) that gives Durant’s embossed tongue tag a hint of high fashion.
Aside from the text details here, we see a shoe that will likely carry a bargain price and stay under the radar just like Durant has while toiling in obscurity for the Zombie Sonics. This pair carries a black base that finds life in the bright blue and orange accents to match OKC’s road uniforms. Tumbled nubuck on the strap and just above the sole would be the signature feature (aside from the text, of course), except for the aggressively ribbed heel cup.
