As a kid growing up in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, Kevin Durant loved peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Whether on the rec center floor as an after school snack or at his Aunt Pearl’s house, the sandwiches were made with love from his grandma, aunt or mom.

For the first time in Nike’s history, a food-themed Swoosh comes alive on the shoe’s upper with a jelly-like look. Peanut-gold and maroon are featured on the upper and outsole.

The KD VI Peanut Butter & Jelly launches in limited quantities on Oct. 19 at select retail locations and Nike.com.
