KD VI preheat
Kevin Durant's sixth signature shoe takes much of its design cues from fine watches1. Hexagons are seen on the outsole of the shoe which tie back to the number six. The tongue logo shows KD's number 35 and the number 6 in the negative space. A lightning bolt on the heel of the shoe ties back to KD's team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Many of the colorways continue the "weather" theme that is a signature part of the KD line going back to the Weatherman colorway on the KD IV and KD's statement that he would be a TV weatherman if not a basketball player.

The construction of the shoe made everyone think of a soccer cleat upon first viewing. The asymmetrical lacing system was a major cause of this. Leo Chang stated that he took no inspiration from a soccer cleat, however. The upper is constructed with hyperfuse and Flywire locking things down.

Small details once again return on a KD shoe. The name of KD's childhood mentor Big Chucky appears on the heel area of the outsole. The phrase "Seat Pleasant's Finest" appears near the toebox on the outsole.
