It's well-known that Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant is proud of his home state of Maryland. The Maryland blue crab, an iconic symbol of the DMV (Wash. D.C., Maryland, Virginia), was the inspiration for Kevin Durant's new KD VI Maryland Blue Crab kicks.

Durant explained his love for Maryland blue crab in his Nike promo:

"In the summertime, we would have at least four or five crab feasts. In the culture from where I come from, crab is a big deal." 

Let's not forget about Durant's tattoo...

The KD VI Maryland Blue Crab will be released on Nov. 29.
