The History Of The Nike KD 13

The Nike KD 13 was released in 2020. As always, Nike designed the 13 specifically for the game and body of Kevin Durant. Learn more about the Nike KD 13 below.


Kevin Durant is one of the most unique NBA players of all time. His game is based on speed, explosiveness, and endurance. The 13 is both lightweight and flexible. The upper is soft and constructed with minimal materials. The softness of the upper gave the wearer a feeling of a broken in shoe, straight out of the box. KD preferred his shoes to feel worn in when he put them on. The 13 has a full length Nike Air Zoom unit. There is an extra Zoom Air Unit underneath the Air Zoom bag in the forefront.  

NBA Legend, Kevin Durant

Kevin Wayne Durant was born on September 29, 1988. Durant is from Washington, D.C. The Nation’s Capital has produced some legendary basketball talent, with KD possibly topping the list. He was a standout in High School and the basketball nation was watching KD at a very young age.

Durant would play college basketball for the University of Texas. He exceeded expectations in his sole season with Texas. He was a first-team All-American and the first freshman to earn National College Player of the Year honors. He dominated in his single season at Texas, and he then decided to move on to the biggest stage in basketball, the NBA.                                    


Pro Career

KD would be selected by the now defunct Seattle Supersonics with the second pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. His rookie season, and sole season in Seattle, was impressive. He proved to the basketball world that he was a star. He easily brought home the NBA Rookie of the Year award and gave Sonics fans hope for the future.

The hope KD provided Sonics fans was unfortunately short lived. The Seattle Supersonics franchise left Seattle, right after his rookie season, due to disputes with the city over a new stadium to play in. The Sonics, along with their young superstar Durant, would relocate to Oklahoma City and become the Thunder.

KD became a superstar in Oklahoma City. He was a multiple time all-star and brought home an MVP Trophy in 2014. Personal success was achieved by KD as a member of the Thunder. Unfortunately, the Oklahoma City Thunder could not bring home a Championship Trophy while KD was a member of the squad.
