Kevin Durant

Drafted with the 2nd overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft to the Seattle Supersonics, Kevin Durant has seen a lifetime’s worth of experiences within the League. From his first nine seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder to his highly derided decision to join the Golden State Warriors, the Slim Reaper found himself with Brooklyn Nets for three seasons, forming a failed superstar trio between he, Kyrie Irving, James Harden and at one point, Ben Simmons.

In February of 2023, Durant’s trade request from Brooklyn was met just days after his running mate Kyrie Irving was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Hours before the trade deadline, Durant was dealt to the Phoenix Suns in a blockbuster deal. In the offseason since, the roster in the desert has been reconfigured around Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal.

Considered to be one of the greatest scorers of all time, Durant has been dropping buckets in the League for 16 years with four scoring titles, a regular season MVP, back-to-back NBA titles and simultaneous Finals MVPs under his belt.

Durant’s early silhouettes were perfectly timed with the early 2010s obsession with titular storytelling, cementing his on-court kicks legacy with a scintillating three-shoe run between the KD 4, KD 5 and KD 6. Color blocking inspired by his opposing career as a weatherman and childhood memories of shooting on a Nerf hoop further iconized the early years of the 12-time All-Star.

Last employed in a low-top construction with the KD 8, ensuing silhouettes have centered specifically around a mid-top build, fusing an engineered Flyknit upper with full-length Air Zoom cushioning technology underfoot.

Boasting The Swoosh’s current second-longest standing signature line, Durant launched his 17th shoe in April, the new formulation wearing heavy influence from the Air Max Plus. While future colorways have mostly been kept under wraps, the Nike KD 17 “Producer Pack” is shaping up to be one of the more highly sought-after series in the model’s run. Additionally, his vaunted Nike KD 4 began its retro run, with pairs like the “Nerf” and “Aunt Pearl” returning as 2024 plays out.

From his yearly homage to Aunt Pearl to his line’s upcoming retro treatment, for more on Durant and his signature Swoosh Brand series, check out the articles below.
