One of the more popular models in the Kevin Durant line, today we take a look at the lineage of the Nike KD II.

Released in 2010, Leo Chang took the helm once again for Kevin Durant as the designer of the Nike KD II. It was this model that really started to get everyone’s attention in the sneaker world. Featuring a mid-foot strap and a lower cut than the previous KD model. Only eleven colorways were released — however, the majority of them are some of the most sought after pairs of today.

Priced at only $85, even a GR at retail was considered a great buy. Along with the traditional ‘OKC’ themed colorways, a few other clean GRs also released. Some House of Hoops and China exclusives were also thrown into the mix, including the coveted ‘Creamsicle’ and ‘Scoring Title’ editions.

After firmly cementing its place in the Nike Basketball line, things would only go up from here for Kevin Durant’s signature shoes. Take a look at the history of the Nike KD II from its first release to its last below.
