I’m not sure if there’s a simple, self-contained word that means “polar opposite of a sneakerhead,” but if there is, that’s what I am. Few things in the world have less relevance to my sedentary blogging lifestyle than sneakers, but pricey retro reproductions of old sneakers would probably be on the list.
But I still think this is kinda cool.
Kevin Durant is one of the top young stars in the NBA. He’s currently on the Oklahoma City Thunder and he played his college ball at Texas, but he was born in D.C., played his high school ball at schools in Virginia and Maryland, and is still a pretty die-hard Redskins fan — even in the Madden video games.
All of which is long-winded, roundabout way of explaining why his new Nike Zoom KD III is being released in some very familiar colors.
Like I say, I don’t know a whole lot about the ins and outs of sneaker fandom, but I do know that that’s one mighty handsome shoe.
