Default Kevin Durant 2's

http://www.eastbay.com/product/sku:8...YWORD%20SEARCH

what y'all think and rate these? i'm looking at copping a pair and have the same build as kevin durant etc. play the same position and after comfortable and light that give you that mean step.

Get them. I've heard nothing but great things about them and plan to buy them as my next pair of basketball shoes. And I only buy lows normally.

I'm thinking about getting them as my next pair, or the Kobe IV's since they're cheaper now with the Kobe V's released. The black and red pair was the one I wanted (Saw them in this video with the creator talking about them) but I'm kinda disappointed by them. Doesn't look as nice as I thought from the video, the black area looked all shiny and stuff but on the eastbay site you can see up close that it is not.

I bought a pair of the all-star kd2's a month ago. They are probably second to my huaraches as far as comfort, but i just love the look so much, and i get tons of compliments every day.
My only real problem with them is that i developed blisters on my heel of both my feet, and I've read a few reviews of people complaining about the same thing.
Another minor complaint is the shoe only has zoom at the front of the shoe, which isn't so bad, but i've been spoiled by full zoom.
These shoes also took me a week or two to break in, since the leather is a bit thick.
Other than that they are easily the best bang for your buck. They aren't as comfy as the kobe's, but i can't pay $160 for a pair of bball shoes right now.

oh shit when kd sign on with nike? shoot, looks like there preparing for him to be a superstar. i think hes overrated. 6'9 shooting guard can score on smaller guards. cant defend em tho either. That being said, these shoes look pretty raw.

Not feeling any of the colorways, but the design does look very stable to ball in, without being too hgih or heavy, alot like most of the older barkleys and flight 89's were, a slightly-lower-mid-cut with a wide, stable outsole.

i agree, most of the time its gimmicky, but with my wierd shaped feet, the strap helps keep them tighter in the middle, whereas my others would bulge in the middle, these stay tight.

Just found out they come with the Lakers colorway, I'll be ordering a pair. Can't beat the price.

Here is a good review for anyone who's interested.
