By the Numbers: Kevin Durant Stats for Each Sneaker Worn in the 2012-13 NBA Season

Previous / Next 1 of 13


Kevin Durant has already carved a lane for himself as one of the most efficient scorers in the NBA today. Despite the Oklahoma City Thunder not making it past the second round of the basketball post-season, KD came very close to his 4th NBA Scoring Title of his career; falling second to Carmelo Anthony this past season by a fraction of a point in averages.

Durant’s weapon on the court was the KD V; his fifth signature sneaker with Nike and the first hightop of the collection. Just like his game, there are subtle nuances to Durant’s sneaker selection for this past season.  The differences between two different pairs of the KD V were so small that it went unnoticed by many that there was more than one ‘Home’ colorway of last season’s Kevin Durant sneaker.

Before the start of the post season, Durant played one game in each of the two Nike KD V Elite pairs that he wore during the NBA Playoffs. For those unaware, the Nike Elite basketball sneaker series takes the current, premiere shoe and upgrades them in time for the playoffs.

Take a look as a complete breakdown of Kevin Durant’s statistical averages in every sneaker he wore during the ’12-’13 NBA season in order of appearance.
