In the early stages of his career, Kevin Durant was a cherished figure in the NBA, playing for the team that evolved from Seattle Supersonics to OKC Thunder. The squad was brimming with youthful talent, including Durant himself, Westbrook, and James Harden – all of whom interestingly went on to become MVPs.
Durant, known as the “Easy Money ” during his formative years with the Thunder, had signature shoes that hadn’t yet made waves in the sneaker industry. However, it was the fourth edition that truly propelled his footwear line into prominence. Back then, Durant’s signature sneakers were both affordable and readily available.
One such model was the Nike KD 3 Easy Money , initially spotted on Durant himself. This shoe was designed to embody Durant’s persona, also known affectionately as “Durantula”. Now, this coveted sneaker is being released to the public, to the delight of Durant’s original fan base.
The sneaker showcases a colorway comprising “Light Silver,” “Blue Jay,” “Steam,” “Mineral Spruce,” and “Metallic Copper.” A “Light Silver” base is accented with hints of “Metallic Copper” around the forefoot. A distinctive “100” pattern pays homage to Durant’s “Easy Money” nickname, while a “Blue Jay” Swoosh logo and a glow-in-the-dark rubber outsole add the finishing touches.

Resale Value: KD 3 Easy Money
The chart above gives a summary of the average sale price of the shoe by size, as well as the returns ( earnings or losses) associated with each. As you can see from the records, 42% of the sales led to losses or no profit ( sizes 8,8.5,9.5, 11 and 10). 33% generated profit margins under $15 ( sizes 11.5,12,12.5 and 10.5). Sizes 13, 14 and 7 led to the most returns with $24, $40 and $42 respectively. But I wouldn’t recommend the size 7 because only 1 sale was recorded for it.
On the other hand, sizes 13 and 14 have 8 and 6 sales between them and lead to mark ups between 17% and 29% ( 1.1 to 2 times above average). So what’s the verdict on the shoe? I will only recommend aiming for larger sizes i.e 13 and up if you’re looking to capitalize on this model.
It will definitely sell out but don’t look for homeruns on it. Smaller sizes will not lead to any profits and mid sizes lead to abysmal returns. So if you’re a buyer I’ll encourage you to exercise a bit of patience, you might be able to pick up a pair even under retail
