Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant reacts to fan busting out one of his special signature shoes on NBA Twitter
Despite the Nets’ recent stint in the playoffs being a complete wash, Kevin Durant stills stands pretty darn high in the NBA’s hierarchy. And in case it might not be obvious to you, that stands as completely justified.
At the end of the day, whether it may be the postseason, or even in general, KD has been excellent consistently for far too long for it to even be a doubt. And while yes, his overall standing may be affected in the eyes of many, he will undeniably, always stand as one of the greatest players this league has ever seen.
Just like the player, the Durantula’s shoe line is also one of the more iconic ever. Each and every new model inevitably becomes a fan favorite soon after its release. And frankly, given just how good the shoes always seem to be almost every time, it’s easy to understand why.
Among all its brethren though, the KD8 elite stands as a bit of an exception, given it’s… unique design. So, finding any today can be considered by many to be a bit of a fool’s errand.
However, there is apparently one Twitter user who has a pair of these. And it appears that when he chose to show it off on social media, the main man himself decided to respond.
And well, you’re going to want to see what he had to say.

No, there was no photoshop used. The shoes really do extend up to that height.
Now, these sneakers were released back in the year 2016. It has been a long, long time since then, and as we said, it is hard to find a pair anywhere nowadays.
But of course, as we mentioned earlier, certain things interesting things happened on NBA Twitter very recently, that we’d like to bring to your attention.
Take a look below.
If u don’t go get a bucket in those today then I don’t respect this post lol https://t.co/GNxA5nm8wp

Yikes. They’re the squeaky clean, white ones too.
What would you do if you were the fan here? Would you do what one of the greatest players to ever lace up tells you? Or would you defy him, keeping the resale value of these beauties, still alive?
Seems like an impossible decision to make, in our opinion.
