Kevin Durant has been trying out a new sneaker it seems, as the Oklahoma City Thunder star was recently spotted practicing in an unidentified Nike offering. The sneaker sports a colorway similar to the Nike KD V ‘DMV’, but is definitely a lower cut than said model. Could this be a forthcoming Nike KD V Low? A Kevin Durant takedown outside of his signature range? An early look at the Nike KD VI? It’s possible that the low cut of the pair is signifying Kevin’s transition back into the shorter shape after the higher hitting nature of his current sig. Give us your best guess in the comments below and stay tuned to Sneaker News should more info pop up on this new Nike worn by Kevin Durant.

These look like KDV lows or a possible playoff edition. I like the look of it from these grainy pix. lol. I'm hoping the strap comes back on a lower shoe for the 6 though. That worked so well
those look dope..i am thinking kdv low but could be the elite..either way they look ill! i would cop! i cant wait to see what nike is cooking up for kobe elite!
Definitely a KD V low with the way that swoosh near the big toe is positioned. I was surprised that he went with a high shoe this year after the success he had with the KD IV.
These are definitely the KD V elite lows! can't wait for the release of the KD V elite low, Lebron X elite and Kobe VIII system superhero pack. Trust me, I interned at Nike and these are on the release calendar for Summer 2013.
I hope they are some lows. Nike was absolutely LAZY this year with the shape and styling of their shoes. The Lebron X, the KD V, the Hyperposites, the Hyperdunks all have the same triangular high top form factor. It's quite boring and "cookie cutter."
the way the say "unidentified" makes it sound like a ufo or some weird alien thing even though it's just a shoe lol.
@ABoog hey these are kobes lol
@WilfridAbi thanks for the info Wilfrid ABi, u interned at a NIke store in Indonesia? u sure we can trust you ? hahaha
@DanContreras it was probably the water boy taking them wt his flip phone
@BryanLimRixiong Yea man, the man in charge told me. No price info for the KD V elites, but the KD VI will have the price point of approx. $160
