For Kevin Durant, the Nike KD VI colorways draws a lot of inspiration from things he has accomplished in his career and his life on and off the court. The recent being the “NYC 66” colorway.

This Nike KD VI draws its inspiration from an outstanding performance he had when he came to Harlem, NY in 2011. His team wore orange as the opposing team wore red. This is was Durant’s first ever visit to Rucker Park as he scored 66 points and dropped 4 straight 3 pointers, igniting the crowd and capping off this performance. People who witnessed this affair couldn’t stop talking about it for years and is now the make-up of this shoe.
