Kevin Durant proved once again on Sunday why he’s considered one of the very best players in the NBA. The young scoring machine is still shy of his twenty-fifth birthday, so given his work ethic and history of good health, we’ll be enjoying number 35′s prodigious talents for many years to come. One of the best parts will be following the development of his Nike Basketball signature series, the next chapter of which is our focus here today. The Nike KD 6 keeps with the Durant line’s sleek lines and this New Orleans Hornets-ish colorup gives all of its distinctive elements a platform to shine. Let us know what you think of the KD VI after you’ve seen these new images below and stick with Sneaker News for more including release dates.
What the fuck? Has nike forgotten that this nigga is 6'11" he cant hoop in slippers. Kobe 6'6" if he had of been in high or mids he would've been good. Guaranteed.
I like these , I do wish they were slightly higher cut , as far as performance with how low and light these will be , ankle stability and support for these look non existent
I see KD going wit da futbol (soccer) style basketball sneaker like Kobe... Their aiiiiiiiight. At da most. I'll probably get 1 pair jus to keep da entire kd line going.. But damm, these ain't lookin to promising... Need to see another cw
i think everyone would be fine if they just brought back the 4 called it the 6 and just released new colorways, these look to much like a indoor soccer shoe
these pics look better than the last...but I still don't like them and as a huge KD fan it sickens me
These are growing on me, but I want KDs to keep their own personality and stop looking like alternate versions of Hyperdunks.
If there ever was a shoe that was simply to busy, this shoe is it. They remind me of a Euro league uniform, and that is not a good thing.
I don't care for this particular model, but there's gonna be a few colorways that will change my mind. I hated the LeBron X model, but I had to get the pure platinum release. This model looks very crafty and I'm sure dope colorways are coming to make up from this years terrible KD5 release
does any1 notice the guys wearing em on the wrong feet or is that just me not being awake really yet?
I understand it's in negative space, but does anybody else not see the "35" in the new logo on the tongue?
Yeah like the kd 5s actually had a slot for your Achilles, ive never seen that b4 on a sneaker i liked that.
@TimothySou lmaoooo they do!!!
@OG_Nike I'm not. Didn't buy a single 5. Won't be buying these either. For those that like them that's fine. it's just not for me.
@DiPdeeeZ 4s were terrible on court
It's funny you'd say that about a shoe with a blatantly minimalist design. If you want to see a busy shoe go look at the Hyperfranchise.
Aaaaaaand that's the point. It's modeled after the quick and light weight look of Nike football boots.
@patb428 2 different people
@patb428 It's two different people, yeah it confused me too.
@CF88 you cant see it? the 5 looks more like an S
@Born2fly spizikes got that
