As the Nike KD VI’s release draws ever nearer, the known colorways that will hit on Durant’s sixth sneaker continue to expand. This pair leans on the orange aspect of the OKC equation, donning a rather bright looking upper that kind of echoes the “Creamsicle” looks that have hit on past KD models. The Nike KD VI in total orange/armory slate will be releasing on August 17th, 2013, going in line with the whole shifted season that’s being applied for the next generation Nike Basketball signatures. Get extra photos after the jump and tell us where this ranks among the Nike KD VI pairs we’ve seen so far.
Nike KD VI
Total Orange/Armory Slate-Team Orange-Armory Blue
I really hope all yall haters stay at home with your opinions when these drop so the ppl thatlike em can get em. But we all kno yall resellers will still pick em up and sell em for $200
Ok a couple things I see wrong with there.
1.shoe is WAY too flat. With a better shaped collar these would have been a good shape.
2. Those triangle pieces look completely out of place on there.
3. The side of the shoe is way too bare. It's basically just a fuse wrap. No shape or design to it.
4. A heel cup would have gone a long way. Possible ever an under cushion for that heel cup similar to the kobe 7s. (Which would also fix #3)
I like the lacing and tongue. It's inventive. It's a good looking shoe IMO but at a below $100 price point. Nikes trying to sell the same shitty materials for a higher price point
ive never been a kd shoe fan but why do these look like a failed nike version oof the 14's, come up with something new!!
Mannn, I love the KD VI. I hate how people call it ugly though and those end up being the same people with 4 5 pairs of one CW.
Some sneakers are best for the court. These are a special case. I wore my hulk kd5 regular once, now they are my ball sneakers.
you know if you guys actually played basketball in addition to wearing shoes for fashion you would know how annoying tongues are on low-top shoes are when it comes to wearing ankle braces or tape.. which makes the off to the side lacing a great feature. but I digress.
this is a ugly shoe in terms of body styling, the off to the side tongue is a not needed. only thing will save these are dope colors. i want to see "what the kd" will look like, will there be some "pearls" again? and of course the all star shoe. im a going on record to say the shoe in terms of styling is awful, but im a hold out on the colors.
ok... now that I've seen new cw's... I can officially confirm my original thought... this shoe is garbage no matter what
@custom This should be the question for a lot of nike kicks being released.
@Longstroke that money aint a joke tho
@custom Keep looking at the space between the shapes. You'll see a 35.
@custom I think its supposed to say kd inversely but I don't get it either
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite what is cw? ive been seeing that alot.
