Kevin Durant to Wear a Fan-Designed KD III

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

When Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder take on the L.A. Lakers this Sunday, KD will be wearing a new colorway of his signature shoe.

Durant posted on his Facebook page this afternoon that he’d be wearing the shoe pictured below in L.A., for the Thunder’s 80th game of the season.

From his Facebook page:

“When I was in L.A. for my All-Star event at Nike Santa Monica I had some fans in attendance submit some NIKEiD designs of my KD III. I picked this one to wear on Sunday against the Lakers! Let me know what you think! And design your own pair here: http://durant.is/exJ0Cs”

    Kobe really set a trend with this low cut bball kicks thing. And as much as I hear great things and see everyone wearing them, I can’t bring myself to play ball in a lowtop sneaker. Guess I’m old fashioned.

    And he said he was in LA, it was probably some Laker fan that designed the shoe, hence the color scheme.
