Nike unveil new KD VI MVP sneakers to honor Durant

Published Add your comment

Kevin Durant's MVP season is to be honored by Nike, with the sports goliath unveiling today a new signature sneaker design for the Oklahoma City Thunder star, the KD VI MVP.

The shoes, which can be seen above and via this link in more detail, pay homage to Durant's awesome season in the very design with everything from his 32 points per game average to his two 50-point games incorporated into the black, white, yellow and orange color scheme.

Durant's phenomenal statistics are seen on the KD VI's through a NIKEiD MVP graphic.

Nike themselves meanwhile were keen to explain the thinking behind designer, Loe Chang's creation:

"(Durant's) mental focus this season allowed him to cut through the clutter, represented by the pixelated KD VI NIKEiD MVP graphic," stated the brand Thursday.

The fairly flamboyant words from Nike also go on to claim that the KD VI MVP design takes inspiration from Durant's love of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as well as his interest in meteorology.

Now while we aren't so sure about that, we have to admit the sneakers do look pretty smart.

According to reports they are priced at around $180 with the option to customise your own personal 'MVP' design also available.
