Kevin Durant is an innovator on the basketball court, but he’s just as focused on honoring his roots and remembering where he came from. In fact, before the KD VI launched, Durant returned to his childhood rec center, the Seat Pleasant Activity Center, to give the shoe a proper introduction event. And so it’s only fitting that the culmination of the KD VI is this, the Nike What the KD VI, a colorway that combines elements of each and every one of the previous 35 editions of the VI.
There’s the floral graphic from the Aunt Pearl edition, the Swooshes off the Maryland Blue Crab and PB&J styles, the liner from the Meteorology and so on, 31 more times. It’s a dope style, sure, but it’s more than that; a story recapping Kevin Durant’s sixth signature shoe, a model that itself boasted colorways that each represented a page out of the man’s memoirs.
