‘Tis the season to be named Kevin and have your own signature shoe, as Messrs. Garnett and Durant have both had their special holiday colorways revealed. Fa-la-la-la-let’s talk about ‘em.
On the left, you have KG’s Anta KG 1 done up in the traditional Christmas green and red. On the right is KD’s Nike Zoom KD III in everybody’s favorite Christmas color — bright yellow. Both shoes are certainly eye-catching but I have a feeling one of them will break a few more necks.
If I had to choose between the shoes, I guess I’d go with Garnett’s. I’m not crazy about that golden pseudo-chevron thing, but they’re a fine looking shoe, if not a little bland. That being said, fans of the Milwaukee Bucks are probably crazy about these bad riders. They’d look perfect on Andrew Bogut.
As for the KD III — wow. The bright yellow actually looks good on that shoe, but it isn’t my color because I’m too worried about being called “Bananafoot” or “Peep Feet.” I’ll leave those to Pharrell Williams and hope for a similar pair of sneaks in that Creamsicle orange Durant sported last year. Maybe for the All-Star Game?
Bigger pics of the kicks after the jump. Let’s hear your thoughts below.
