The KD7 PB&J is Inspired By Kevin Durant's Favorite Childhood Snack

The KD7 PB&J is a shoe inspired by last year's NBA MVP Kevin Durant's go-to childhood snack, the humble peanut-butter-jelly sandwich. The shoe is the second of a three-shoe Nike Snack Attack, and follows hot on the heels of the KYRIE 1 Cereal Snacks.

Durant says much of his childhood exploits were fueled by PB&J, whether on the basketball court or while hanging around with friends in the neighborhood. "Actually, PB&J is still my go-to snack and it's cool to have a KD7 that takes that part of my story to a new level for kids," Durant says.

In addition to top-notch performance features, the KD7 PB&J features a delightful design with swathes of peanut butter tan and blobs of grape jelly purple.

Nike is without a doubt taking athlete-endorsed footwear to the next level by coming up with shoes that don't merely bear the athlete's name or jersey number, but bear design hallmarks inspired by their personal stories.
