Nike, Converse and Jordan Brand has been steadily releasing “Art of a Champion” packs over the past few months in order to celebrate the greatest NBA playoff moments and the latest one looks to Golden State’s recent triumph. In order to pay homage to the Finals MVP Kevin Durant, Nike dipped a pair of the KD10’s in gold, with the shoes coming in a gold-colored suitcase alongside artwork, speakers and two tops.

There was also a special edition hangtag with sixteen strikes to notify how many games it takes to win the playoffs. Durant gifted it to a fan himself, taking pictures with the lucky winner. There’s no word of a wider release for this, so it can be safely assumed that these are a one-off drop.

In related news, the last drop from the “Art of a Champion” pack was an Air Force 1.
