Default Durant want cheap sneakers too

Quote:

Today on his Oregon Live blog, John Canzano reported that one of the sticking points for Durant in his negotiations with Nike and Adidas is a commitment to make a shoe that is at a price point that most individuals could afford. That price point is rumored to be between $39 and $69. If Kevin Durant (a player that is going to be on the marketing level of a Dwyane Wade or a LeBron James) can get Nike or Adidas (the two most powerful sneaker companies in the world) to brand a Kevin Durant signature shoe for $39, he'll have done more toward making sneakers more affordable than anyone before him. I mean, if Nike or Adidas start making affordable shoes with Durant's name on them, it automatically becomes that much more acceptable for kids to purchase cheaper shoes.

It's more likely that Adidas or Converse would sign him. I can't see Nike offering a NBA brand shoe that cheaply.

Nike now owns Converse.

In any case, if this is true Kevin Durant is now my favorite player in this draft and one of my five favorite guys in the league.

speaking of cheap shoes, are the ben wallace shoes available yet? I bought myself a pair of starbury's (not the bball ones) and I love them. Very comfortable, have held up well, look decent. The thing is I am not a marbury fan, so I would rather wear the Wallace brand. Couldnt find anything about it on the Steve and Barry's website

Just more athletic, more offensive moves and will only continue to get better over the years.

Keith Van Horn was a 17 and 7 player for his entire career. Don't see how the comparison is an insult.

Rumor has it Marbury learned of this move...said Durant is a copycat and decided to sell his sneakers...for FREE. 1 pair limit. I hear they are gonna use recycled tires for the majority of the material.

I would take those in a second. Id rather they use recycles materials in things like shoes. Unfortunately, its become trendy and now it costs more (like those stupid purses made out of old tires and bottlecaps). Check out Simple shoes recycled line.
