History of KD Shoes
Kevin Durant first signed with Nike in 2007 as a rookie and got his first signature shoe a year later in 2008. Nike has produced a new model every year since.
There wasn’t really any drama around his sneaker story up until 2014. His 7-year, $60 million contract was about to be done and he could decide to leave Nike or stay with the sports brand giant. Under Armour was close to getting a shot at the superstar, reportedly offering him up to $285 million. As we all know, KD chose to stay with Nike and signed a 10-year, $300 million deal.

Characteristics of Kevin Durant Signature Shoes
Kevin Durant’s signature shoes started off with the Nike Zoom KD I which featured a leather upper and a full-length Cushlon midsole with a forefoot Zoom unit. Starting with the second iteration, however, Cushlon was replaced with Phylon but still with the extra cushion in the forefoot.
KD started out with high-top sneakers up until the Nike Zoom KD III. The Nike Zoom KD IV was the first massively popular KD signature sneaker, even outside the United States. It brought Hyperfuse and an Adaptive Fit System and saw the return of the strap which has now become not unusual with his signature line.
KD’s cushioning has always involved Zoom, even if the brand dropped it in naming the shoes since the fifth iteration. Because of this, his signatures have always been responsive but also had enough impact protection. Ever since the KD 8, the line has seen full-length Zoom. The cushion was always premium but not overwhelming to the average person.
The materials moved with the times as KD’s signature line transitioned from leather early on to a combination of fuse and other synthetics and with mostly lightweight mesh and knits in the most recent versions. In part because of this, prices have never been over-the-top with his most expensive one at $160.
Many regard the KD VI as the most iconic of the KD line and this, in part, because he won his one and only Regular Season MVP while wearing them. However, nobody could argue that the KD IV had the most dope colorways, like the “Easter” and “Year of the Dragon” ones. The “Aunt Pearl” colorway has been a staple in nearly every iteration of the signature.
The KD Trey V is Durant’s budget sneaker and has featured mostly a foam cushion, Phylon or Renew, and a smaller Zoom unit either in the forefoot or heel.
