Kevin Durant keeps signature shoes affordable

Durant ultimately decided on Nike because they offered him his own shoe with more to come in the future.

And more have arrived with the KD IIIs being his most recent installment. Nike has created 15 different color schemes with the shoe, including a scoring title scheme that he donned during the Western Conference Finals against Dallas.

"I had the scoring title shoes last year, but I couldn't wear them because our team doesn't like solid blue or solid orange shoes," Durant said. "This year, they made them black so I could wear them and it had my teammate's names all throughout the shoe. Once I put them on they molded to my foot. Probably the best ones I ever had, they were crazy."

So what's next for Kevin Durant and Nike?

The KD IV, that fans could possibly see later this year, though Durant wouldn't give away any secrets on the shoe. He did say it would feature Nike's Zoom Air cushioning, an adjustable midfoot lockdown strap and a Thunderbolt traction pattern. It will also remain a low top.

"I told Nike to make a foamposite pair of the KD IV," Durant said. "Hopefully people in DC will pick them up and support me. They always do that anyway but I'm sure if I throw some foams out there they will do it even more."
