Sneakerhead: Nike KD VI

Kevin Durant‘s Game Fundamentals: Preparation. Precision. Performance.

All three came into play when the Star NBA Guard and NIKE came up with the KD VI.


When it comes to performance, my shoes are very important, because I want to feel as though I can glide & move & jump… and turn different ways. I want to feel like, as quick as a point guard & I want to feel as firm as a center. – Kevin Durant

KD’s new signature shoe pays a great deal to attention, showing every detail in its silhouette. It also adds six new performance benefits:

A new tongue to improve the fit.
Ultra thin, two layer Flywire upper for lockdown support.
Hyperfuse construction for breathability and comfort.
Responsive cushioning in the forefoot w/ Nike Zoom.
Impact protection from Max Air Unit in the heel.
Non slip control from a data informed traction pattern.

The small details are what makes players who we are. – Kevin Durant


The new kicks will be available on and select retailers around the globe July 3. To celebrate KD’s hometown, Washington D.C. stores will get an exclusive early release of June 29.
