Just yesterday we got another preview of the "Peanut Butter and Jelly" KD 6, and today Nike supplies the official images, along with a video of Kevin Durant himself explaining the inspiration behind the colorway.
Via Nike Inc:
As a kid growing up in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, Kevin Durant loved peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Whether on the rec center floor as an after school snack or at his Aunt Pearl’s house, the sandwiches were made with love from his grandma, aunt or mom.
For the first time in Nike’s history, a food-themed Swoosh comes alive on the shoe’s upper with a jelly-like look. Peanut-gold and maroon are featured on the upper and outsole.
The KD VI Peanut Butter & Jelly launches in limited quantities on Oct. 19 at select retail locations and Nike.com.
Check out the official images of the shoe and a special edition Elite sock below, and let us know if you'll eat up a pair of the PB&J's on release day.
