So the ever-so-popular “Weatherman” has returned to the Nike KD VI in slightly different form, revisiting the topographic graphics with this new Black/Atomic Red colorway with a slew of details surrounding the shoe. This is indeed the third known colorway of the Nike KD VI (the other two being the Yellow/Teal and that Blackout wear-test sample that likely won’t release), and as a release date has recently been noted for August 3rd, it’ll be just a few blinks of the eye until the Nike KD VI officially hits stores (time’s flying, fellas). We’ve got a detailed look at the Nike KD VI “Meteorology” after the jump, so take a look and leave us a comment on what you think of the KD VI silhouette and this rehashed “Weatherman” composition.
Nike KD VI “Meteorology”
Nah, too much going on for me, especially on a shoe like this. I'm pretty sure this shoe will be good for hooping in though....
there is no ankle support on these. if they had the lookalike kobe 7 ankle guard in the early pics then I would definitely get these.
Solid rubber bottoms are just sooo out dated. If they'd made the black outsole and that red zig zag clear, this shoe would have stomped the Weathermans but since Nike seems to be losing sight of whats cool, Weathermans all day.
have to see these on feet prior to any decision being made still. however i do like these better than the first cw that is releasing. and im still confused as to why people didnt like the Vs.
IMHO The tongue is the only question mark on this shoe at this point. You can't please everybody all the time but this is a clean silhouette and it will definitely be embraced by many.
AT FIRST IT WAS AN EASY PASS, BUT THIS COLORWAY GREW ON ME SO I'M GOIN' TO HAVE TO COP THESE NOW....
Its too much heat coming out in Aug. To be worrying about these joints... Idk if ill cop a KD VI but def none of the CW they've posted so far... The model of the sneakers js weird as it is why put a weird CW IMO.
Sooo the hypebeasts on this site ride whatevers hot and the non-hypebeasts bitch and moan about everything new smh some people need to get over the past this is a dope pair of shoes imo the kd 6 is already better than the failed expiriment that was the kd 5. The kd 4 was a great shoe but get over it its not like nike is gonna remake them anytime soon so embrace some of the new innovations cause the constant bitching that i see on this site isn't really going to influence phil knights decision making
These > Weatherman. Dont get me wrong the wheatherman is dope but these are a tad bit simple and more wearable.
I knew the kd 6s had potential. Hopefully we see a few more hot colorways. I like the colors on these though but not better than the weatherman 4s.
Crap like the 5's. Is it me or does it seem that when they up the price on these shoes, they always do too much thinking they'll give MORE to the customers? Anyway, catch my long bomb and go deeeeep.....
"Can't fuck w/da IV's"
can that damn swoosh be any bigger!? Pass only because of that. The KD logo and 1 small instep swoosh would have been perfect
@fly li wtf are u talking about, the kd 5 was/is amazing...
Yeah! And let's get rid of Nike Air too! So overplayed, being back the good old fashion cork insoles.
