Kevin Durant and Nike have announced the release of a special edition KD VIs inspired by Maryland blue crabs.
For those who are unfamiliar, crab feasts are a summer staple in the Mid-Atlantic region. In a video Durant, who is from Washington, D.C., explains that he and his family used to have several crab feasts a year.
"The culture from where I come from, crab is a big deal,” Durant says.
Here's what Nike had to say about the shoe, which is released Nov. 29:
"With color, graphics and textures mimicking a blue crab indigenous to Maryland, the high performance shoe can double as a showpiece. The details are unmistakable: exact pantone colors matching the legs and pinchers of a blue crab, with textured effects on the shoe’s upper and KD logo matching a crab’s shell. The KD-logo hologram on the outsole brings the theme full circle with crab legs and pinchers."
Below are Durant's peanut butter and jelly inspired kicks. Is anyone else getting hungry?
