With scoring titles, an NBA Finals appearance and an MVP award to his name, Kevin Durant only needs a championship ring. Well, that and a new shoe. Durant received the latter today during an unveiling ceremony in Washington, D.C., as Nike officially released Durant's seventh signature model shoe.

Designer Leo Chang, who has been behind every Durant signature, including the well-received KD VI, is once again at the helm, framing the KD7 as a "performance hybrid."

The KD7 features mesh on the forefoot and Dynamic Flywire and Nike Zoom cushioning. For the first time in the Durant signature line, the shoe incorporates Hyperposite technology in the heel. A mid-foot strap, a staple of the  popular KD IV, makes its return.  The shoe's design also takes inspiration from lightning, a nod to Durant's well-documented love of meteorology.

The KD7 officially drops at retailers June 26 for $150. You can get a closer look at the shoe below.
