Nike KD 6 “54 Points”
This weekend was a big one for Kevin Durant, as the man reached new heights in the points per game category, racking up 54 for a new career high against the Golden State Warriors. Celebrating that achievement are these sneakers, which have a metallic sheen the likes of which we’ve not seen too often on the KD 6. Of course it could just be a creation utilizing some soon-to-be-announced NIKEiD option, but a member of his inner circle is calling them the “54 Points”, so we are too. Continue reading for more angles on the sneakers and watch for more updates on Kevin Durant’s shoes right here.
Let me get this straight...Nike designed and manufactured a KD for his 54 pt game in less than one day and they did it on a Saturday, releasing pics on Sunday? I have some beachfront property in North Dakota I would like to sell you fools
Nike is just making colorways just to make them because you have people that's gonna buy them. So they come out with 2-3 colorways a month because people keep buying this shit people will buy anything just because of the name. The sneaker doesn't even have to match they will buy anything these days. Answer this how many colorways have they made of this sneaker???? Same with Jordan's, kobes, and Lebrons
Nike came up with these in one day and from the looks of em you can tell it was rushed! Trash! Kd is my favorite player, OKC is my city so no hate here. Just telling the truth... Straight garbage
okay so based on what im seeing right now, this shoe doesnt look good at all, i get the symbolic meaning and all but that doesnt make the shoe wearable. it just looks cheap based on the pics, looks spray painted almost, i think that a better base color could have been used that gold shit just clashes way too hard up against those shades of blue
an ok shoe a little better than a gr because i think i see some cool detailing among the gold upper but the color combination (gold light blue) isn't a great mixture. Not anywhere as hot as the scoring titles 4 and if these sell out instantly on nike.com,if released as 54 points, then im a little disappointed. Not hating on shoe but eventual hype (not totally bad shoe, but for career high cmon nike.)
13 plus.... That's just crazy and probably 13 to 15 more to go! You ain't lying bruh, it's ridiculous! I hate 3 pair Christmas, seat pleasant, and an iD, but I sold the iD. No more for me I don't gives a Dang how good it looks! If I do get another kd vi it will be iD again. I was just talking to my wife about this crap. I had every kd v except the aunt pearls (don't do punk I mean pink), Texas, and the last 2 elites. I ended up selling all of em except the all star, super hero, hulk, and energy. It's a Dang waste of money! From now on I will grab the first drop of the kd, LeBron, Kobe, and then maybe a pair of each. Having the same Dang shoe multiple times is just crazy as hell when you think about it.
@qtbigwatts Agreed. I fear we're going to see a lot more trash this year and not just from Nike. Look at SNS with those Reebok Shaqnosis. A shoe with a big rainbow on the side. Uhmm...ok.
It was the 12th collab for them for 2013 and they looked exhausted. Setting a goal to release 1-2, sometimes even 3 pairs of shoes in a month probably isn't a good idea. Given I work in a creative field it can only mean they're not taking breaks to come back to new designs fresh and rested and as soon as the shoe is out they already got a tight timeline for the next. Then the pressure that another one is due shortly after and rinse, wash repeat.
Art takes time, good art at least but if the goal is to just produce numbers and hope ever so often one sticks then that seems like a waste of resources and a way in which I personally wouldn't want to create.
Red is missing and that Navy blue is nowhere in the King's pride. This sole is a turquoise color king's pride is artic green.... Not the same at all
@Alejandro8675Overall I don't think Nike is giving any of their "signature" shoes the attention to detail it deserves. Just my opinion.
I agree with your assessment of the shoe. From the side it looked good but once I saw that tongue, like ouch. It's not a seamless CW that flows well.
@qtbigwatts Your so right. My girl was saying the same thing. Ppl just buying shoes just to buy them. What's sad is more than half the ppl who buy them have no style and wear fresh shoes with dingy clothes. SMDH. Way too many colorways!!!
A shoe with a rainbow on the side.... Maannnn.... Don't do that to me bruh, I almost died over here. I'm hurting! Hahaha. You speaking the truth. I just purchased some more LeBron x carbons and about to grab two pair of Reebok realflex, solid colors. I'll buy some legit throwback joints before I buy these new releases. Yeah, these are trash and great art takes time
You ain't lying about that bruh.... I be seeing a lot of dusty folks wearing some clean kicks. I'm into the cooling out gear, I love wearing a fresh shirt with fresh sweats or real nice hoop shorts and a drifit tee. When it's time to go out with the wife Lacoste or a fresh button up and it's cracking. I'm 30 yrs old so I remember when a shoe drop it had original team colors and that's it! You could order your team color through eastbay and footlocker. I like that they put out a variety of colors, but Damn not on one Damn model it is crazy. I'm about to go back to wearing just black, red, gray, and white in a minute. I have nothing but OG color Jordans nothing else. Only crazy colors I get is in my kd's or LeBron's. I think when the colors get crazy on the J's it's just stupid and they look fake to me.
@qtbigwattsI hear yah bruh. When they start doing this nonsense I just revisit my wishlist or wait for the next month and pray something good is going to drop.
