“That's how I look at my game,” Durant said. “It's the small details that make me who I am.”

The KD VI retails at $130, the third price increase after the line started at $85 before shooting up to $95 with the KD IV and $115 with the KD V. The show is available in several different colorways, including the orange and black “NYC 66” which salutes Durant's 66 points in New York City's renowned Rucker Park, the black and pink “Meteorology,” another nod to Durant's stated second career choice, the multicolored “DC/Pre-Heat” and the all green “Bamboo.”

Custom colors also can be created with NikeiD, a service both online and in stores that allows customers to personalize Nike merchandise.

“Leo's been a big part of every shoe that I've worn since I've been in the NBA. He's done such a great job. He's a genius,” Durant said. “He makes my foot safe. Makes me feel safe and comfortable on the floor. Just like I'm getting better at my game, he's getting better and better every day as well.”
