Because Kevin Durant has reportedly said he would have been a TV weatherman if not a perennial second-place finisher, and because apparel companies have never met an endorser quirk they don't like, Nike is releasing a series of weather-themed sneakers. Three "Weatherman"-series shoes will hit stores later this summer, following on the heels of two offerings from Durant’s own KD line—one from 2011, and the other released on Aug. 3 of this year. With Doppler-esque graphics, isobars (equal atmospheric pressure, for any non-meteorologist readers), and topographical grids, all that's missing is a five-day forecast*.
