Even though spring just started, the heat can be found on the court. Durant debuted his newest sneaker. D-Lo made history in some PGs. Reigning Kicks On Court Champ PJ Tucker went deep in his archives. DeRozan flexed his Kobe 4 PEs too.

These sneakerheads aren’t messing around. Take a look of the 10 best shoes from the past week below. Let us know on social media if we missed any. Be sure to stay up to date with everything KOC-related for the rest of the regular season and throughout the playoffs here at Nice Kicks.
