We saw an impressive collection of colorways of the Nike KD VI today, but there’s still one more we’d like to show you – the “Bamboo” colorway inspired by one of the toughest organic materials on Earth. Bamboo has always been a sturdy and versatile material especially in Chinese culture, and in the KD 6, it comes to life with the rich green colorway and graphic inner liner. The texture of bamboo is visualized on the upper shell, while Chinese characters that spell out bamboo (coincidentally marked by six lines) are also featured on the upper. A China-inspired colorway has been the norm for all of Nike Basketball signature models, so no surprise here that the Nike KD 6 Bamboo fills in that role as well. Stay tuned for more info on the Precision Watch-inspired Nike KD VI!

after that video of seeing KD play in these I have even less hope. look like a vinyl ballet slipper creasing and crunching with every step. I like the meteorology CW, but the shoe design REALLY looks like a fail.
They're OK, but it looks like the normal color ways are only from Nike ID... all I want to see is a Thunder colorway
Can everyone please stop hating on the KD 6? I mean ok it doesnt look like a regular basketball shoe but it has some pretty dope colorways. This one is a cop for me
This shoe is pretty clean you can actually make some sick colorways on nike id. Glad there isn't hype around these
@DreamChaser You know people gonna be on them, its KDs
@JDwears3 Its being made into the design of a football cleat
