Shoe of The Week: Nike KD2 (Kevin Durant)

Disclaimer: I'm no full on sneaker head, but every week we're gettin our shoe on here! Each week I'll pick a shoe that I like, basketball, or normal. Get your new leather smell ready!

Nike is bringing Kevin Durant back for his own signature shoe. I was interested as soon as I saw this headline. I am a proud owner of the KD1's. They are my game shoes and I have been very happy with them.

So what about the 2010 version? They are very similar, except they've got a strap in the middle of them. I don't hate the strap, but I certainly don't love it. I'd say the black colorway of these shoes is fine, but the other colorways (check them out) are not really that nice.

I was kind of torn between not liking them at all to being okay with them. I need to see them up close and personal before I would pull the trigger.

Runner-up: Nike Zoom Kobe IV Draft Day

Hornets fans, get your anger out with these. Just think if Kobe would not have been traded and came to your squad. That's what these shoes are all about- draft day.

Nike has released so many limited edition versions of these. This is another. I like them, but if I'm a Lakers fan looking for Kobe shoes, this isn't the colorway for me. I'd look for another colorway. Nike has released TONS.
