The Nike KD VI will release on July 3rd, 2013 in this yellow/teal/navy look. The upcoming release will deviate from what we’re familiar with as far as the Kevin Durant line of sneakers is in a couple of ways. First of all the price point has jumped up-the shoes will retail at $130 for the adult sizes. What’s more, the model will transition back into a low shape-the lowest we’ve seen yet for the likes of KD’s shoes. Do you think the model will end up a hit come the Summer 2013 release? Give us your thoughts in the comments and remember that the Nike KD VI release date is July 3rd.
Nike KD VI
I have only 2 reasons why entire KD6 line doomed to fail:
1. Overall design is what remains of the flywire, Hyperdunk, soccer cleats, tennis shoe, casual shoe ideas from these long overdue must-be-fired Nike Designers. Combination of good colorways wouldn't make up for the design flaw.
2. So much for Kevin Durant's campaign for his supposedly affordable sneakers for the masses. From $95 to now at $130.
I'd say "GOODBYE KD's! Bring back the NOW-ICONIC KD-IVs strap system with that affordable price and OKC will survive the Grizzlies".
This shoe looks like Iverson's A6. In the right CW it will look fresh...in the wrong cw it will look like a bowling shoe.
This shoe is okay. You all will love it when the South Beach color way drops. But anyone that actually plays basketball is over air max. The only thing to play in is lunar foam.
is this his sig or a take down/low version?? i get no usa hoops this summer but why drop a sig in july?? makes no sense??
The only thing that looks good on these is the bottom of the soles and who really sees that when you're wearing shoes?
I Want to like em because KD is my homie but these just are not poppin! Might as well give em to Usain Bolt cause they look like track shoes
I will never be ok with low top basketball shoes. I'll wait to see what Nikeid has to offer. You think these were rushed because the V's were a flop?
@jhoward i know. these dont even look any better than the kd 5
Theses have potential, still waiting for another color way to catch my eye though. Knew KD couldn't keep his shoes around $100 for long but at least they're still cheaper than Kobe's & Lebron's.
Definitely interesting. But performance? IS KD really gonna hoop in these, coz they look like soccer shoes.
WTF Who ever designed these kd 6s should get RIPPED horrible shoe! love kds but these are fucking hideous!
Trash!!! KD IV was one of the best model if not the best & only retail $95.. these shit is worth $80 I swear the sneaker game is fucked up 1st its foams dropping trash CW now its KD.... Who next
these kinda grew on me....hated them at first, kinda feeling them...I think there'll goin to look betta with some dope colorways
Nike always previews a new shoe with the shittiest possible colorways. This is just me, but I think there will be some fire colorways coming and the design of the shoe is actually unique
Their jus ok... But 130 tho... U go frum a high top to a low top & ask fa more doe... Damm KD.. What happened to wantin yo kicks under a Benji... Now we at 200... What happened
Look like soccer cleats.....or track shoes or sometin..
Not feelin the colorway either :( I will be passin on this release.
@Psilent_Type a N7 version might or all star?
@Jonathan Broder Nike is trying to break away from releasing all the sig shoes around the same time. they wanted KD's sig to get some shine basically and not get overshadowed by lebron and kobe
@ayochaser The Kobe 6 retailed at $130 and Kobe 7 & 8 at $140. KD's were only $95 at that point. The price on KD's is growing out of control. Price increase of $35 in 1 1/2 years. Nike is jacking fools!
@jrvsprc Elite KD's are already there.
