We’ll start off by saying that your chances of walking into a brick-and-mortar store on the Monday after the release and picking up a pair at retail are less than slim and likely none. But for those gearing up for next Saturday’s official release of the What The KD 6, here’s a bit of info that should ease your nerves: the shoes aren’t nearly as limited as you think. Sources at Nike inform us that distribution of the shoes is far more widespread than any other “What The” sneaker release in the past, and stores around the world reporting their own stock of the shoes. More importantly, the widened production of “energy” releases is a sign that Nike is listening to the enthusiast as well as the core consumer of Nike Basketball products and making the necessary moves to inch closer to meeting the demand. We do know that these KD 6 shoes drop tomorrow in Europe, but for those in the U.S., the official release date is on June 14th at select retailers like Social Status as well as Nike.com.
