This past ’09-’10 NBA season was one Kevin Durant will remember in his future scrap-booking years; led the Thunder to a 50-win season and a Playoff berth, won his first NBA scoring title, came second in League MVP voting, and was selected on the All-NBA First Team alongside LeBron, Kobe, Dwyane Wade, and Dwight Howard. It was also a big year for his signature line with Nike, as it was a popular choice for basketball players around the league and on the street; simple colorways and an $85 pricetag made these a no-brainer. The success of the Nike KD II only has wondering what Nike and Durant have in store for us.
Check out this first look that, according to NT, is Kevin Durant’s third shoe, the Nike KD III. The KD III sports the KD logo on the tongue and a low-mid cut with the same Zoom cushioning, but it looks like Flywire has been added to the forefoot of the shoe. Right now we can expect at least seven colorways both Thunder-inspired and Team oriented, but whether or not this is in fact the Nike KD III is subject to change. Needless to say, the shoe is very simple and unremarkable, so will Nike decide to vamp it up a bit, or will they stick to the simple-and-affordable formula that worked so well for the Nike KD II?
