[inline:shoes] According to Nike, the Kevin Durant and some of his Thunder teammates will debut the KD2 Creamsicles tonight in their game versus the Mavericks on ESPN. What do you think of them? Hot or not? Sound Off in the comments... Also, check out what KD has to say about them after the jump.
This is from Durant's website: First off, just to have your own shoe is a blessing. To have Nike on your feet is also a blessing. On top of that, some of my teammates are going to wear my new sneakers tonight, too. Its great to have that kind of support. For my teammates to represent my shoe feels good. A lot of people are going to see a lot of orange tomorrow, so Im glad they decided to wear it. They liked it a lot. I brought them out in the summertime to wear, theyre excited and we cant wait to play in them tonight. Also, I wanted these sneakers to be affordable for everyone, so theyre only going to cost $90. I remember growing up when I couldnt afford the Vince Carters or the Jordans or guys who had their own shoes. I always wore the team Nikes, like the Uptempos. I remember one of my teams had the Shaqs. I just had a couple of pairs. I couldnt really get the Jordans that I wanted but it was always good just to find a shoe to play basketball in. So this time, I thought to myself that I want people to afford it and 90 dollars is the perfect price and hopefully people will start to buy them. The KD2 is different from my first sneaker, although theres some similarities. The sneaker has a strap on it at the mid sole. Its not a high top but its a mid, almost. Its a great fit. It has the same bottom as the KD1s that show how I grew up and my workout plans and things like that. Its pretty cool. One of the numbers on the sole is 108, which is the house number for my grandmothers house. I used to sit outside of her house almost every day after the school. Another number is 20746, which is the address number of the post office where my mom used to work at across the street from my old house. Those are just some things from my childhood that mean a lot to me. [inline:orange]
