You've seen the "Birds of Paradise" KD 9s, and now we're learning more about the evolution of Kevin Durant's signature sneaker line from the man himself.

Durant and designer Leo Chang sat down to discuss the ways that KD's sneakers have often paralleled his personal growth.

The two talked about a memorable bike ride they took together in Paris, Durant's infatuation with China, how he feels when he sees kids wearing his sneakers, and more.

The "Mic Drop" KD 9s are still available here, and you can customize a pair with Golden State Warriors colors here.
