Kevin Durant is staying with Nike. So he gets to keep the coolest line of shoes in the game outside of Air Jordans.

It’s a matter of personal opinion, but I think the KD series — particularly the KD VI’s — are some of the best looking shoes ever produced. Couple that with the unique Durant-inspired themes surrounding each colorway — the “Maryland Blue Crab,” the “Aunt Pearls,” the “Year of the Horse”  — you’ll find that regardless of whether or not you like the shoes, the KD series has distinguished itself as truly unique.

We’re looking for your KDs stories and photos. Tell us why you wear Durant’s signature shoe. Is it the comfort? The creativity? Do you play ball in them? Do you only wear them casually?

What makes the KDs so cool? Use the #myKDs hashtag on Twitter, and tweet @newsoksports or @erikhorneok to let us know. You can also tell us why you love the KDs so much in the comments section below, via email ( and on Facebook.

We want photos too! Send us shots of your KDs, from I to VI, and tell us the story behind them and why they’re your favorites.
