Kevin Durant only spent one year at the University of Texas, but it was a memorable one. Durant averaged 25.8 points and 11.1 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Longhorns, and was named the AP Player of the Year.
More than a decade later, Durant still thinks highly of his time at Texas. Since joining the Golden State Warriors, he has often stated that his year at the school was one of the best of his life, and now he’s paying homage to the Longhorns, while also hooking up some of the school’s student-athletes.
Earlier this week, Durant sent out some specialized Nike gear to the Texas football team, which is preparing for a December 27 game against Missouri in the Academy Sports and Outdoors Texas Bowl.
The shoes the athletes are getting are a custom Texas-themed version of the KD X. You don’t have to be a fan of the Longhorns to think that these are some slick shoes.
