The KD7 Good Apples shoe is a show that was inspired by Durant's penchant for comparing picking apples in an orchard to competing at the highest level of basketball. "I approach scoring like apple picking," Durant once said. "Keep the good ones and leave the rotten ones."
The shoe is the latest version of Durant's signature shoe, which brings together high-performance innovation with inspiration from Durant's journey on and off the basketball court. The shoe features appropriate splashes of red and green.
Durant's apple analogy is not too far-fetched. It essentially drives home the point that it's better to eat 30 good apples than eat 20 good ones and 20 bad ones. In other words, shooting success is all about playing a percentage game.
