Kevin Durant has been wearing his third signature shoe from Nike Basketball in our Sneaker Watch coverage for a while now. The Oklahoma City Thunder star has quickly become one of the league’s premier players and his signature sneakers are steadily becoming the same amongst the sneaker community. Last year, Kevin Durant and what seemed to be the entire Thunder team took to the court in a bright orange colorway named the Creamsicle and caught national attention both on television and throughout the sneaker culture.

For the 2010-2011 season, or more specifically Christmas day against the Denver Nuggets, Durant will sport a new bright and colorful version of his latest shoe, the Nike Zoom KD III. The Vibrant Yellow colorway features some impressive detailing on top of its stunning color. Starting from the bottom of the shoe, a semi-translucent outsole in matching yellow creeps up the lateral side right into a shiny metallic finish in the Flywire panel which has an almost prismatic feel. Oklahoma City team colors of Photo Blue and Team Orange play a minimal part in detailing the uppers, while a mix of patent and suede-like finishes give this KD III colorway textures like no other.

Available at Eastbay on Christmas day, December 25th by calling 1.800.826.2205 at 7AM CST to order.
