Best of 2012: The Nike KD IV "Galaxy" is the #9 Sneaker of the Year



It's that time of year again. Time to reflect back on the best sneaker releases of the year and 2012 has been filled with memorable footwear moments. To determine the Top 10 Sneakers of 2012, we gathered a panel of experts for a round table battle discussion. The panel includes legendary DJ and sneaker expert, DJ Clark Kent, founder of Influence Mktg, Jay Corbin, founder and front man of Nice Kicks, Matt Halfhill, Ronnie Fieg of Kith, Jesse Villanueva of ALIFE, Frank the Butcher of Butcher's Block TV. Representing Complex in the discussions were Sneaker Editor Russ Bengtson and Director of Content Strategy Joe La Puma. 

Following up the Reebok Question is the fourth incarnation of the Kevin Durant signature sneaker line from Nike Basketball. The Nike KD IV took the Durant signature line to astronomical heights, quite literally with the Galaxy colorway that released for the All Star Game in Orlando. Now a bonafide superstar, Kevin Durant's signature sneakers are following in the path of KD in becoming legendary. Check out how the KD IV Galaxy landed at #9 in this year's Top 10 Sneakers of 2012.
