Besides Michael Jordan, Kevin Durant was the big winner in the sneaker sales game in 2014.

According to Sports One Source researcher Matt Powell, Durant's shoe sales by player had the highest uptick from 2012 to 2013 - jumping from just $35 million in 2012 to $175 million in 2013. Sports One Source specializes in industry news and market research.


Durant still trailed Jordan ($2.25 billion) and LeBron James ($300 million) in total sales, but no one besides Jordan had a higher sales increase in the last year than KD.
