Various NBA stars have discussed the high-voltage energy of playing ball in New York City, but the latest edition of Kevin Durant's Nike KD 7 pays tribute to the electricity of the Big Apple in a literal sense. The KD 7 "Lightning 534" is yet another weather-themed colorway, featuring a purple hue reflecting the New York City sky when lightning strikes (specifically, when it hits the Empire State Building, a towering lightning rod located on Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street that gets struck by lightning an average of 25 times per year). Of course, Durant scorched the Harlem blacktop like lightning himself, scoring 66 points during a notorious summer league game on Aug. 1, 2011. The Nike KD 7 "Lightning 534" hits stores November 25.
