Sneaker Watch: Nike KD VI

With a handful of colorways already in stores, Nike Basketball previews the next wave of KD VI colorways. When working with designer Leo Chang, Durant provided personal on and off-court insight which was directly applied to the KD VI through color blocking, themes, graphics and textures that bring KD’s journey to life.

Each of the following five colorways will be featured with some special surprises and insight from KD himself beginning October 1 with a salute to the Texas colorway.

These new KD VI colorways will be available globally in limited quantities at and select retailers.

Nike KD VI “Texas”

Durant has fond memories of his days playing in Texas. Inspired by the state’s magnificent stars and big sky, the shoe includes a burnt orange, black and mint color palette. Launch: Oct. 10.

Nike KD VI “Peanut Butter & Jelly”

Aunt Pearl would always bring a young KD his favorite childhood snack, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, when he was away from home. She would drop off the sandwiches at the Seat Pleasant Activity Center while KD was busy developing his game. His appetite for hard work continues to this day, with PB&J as an ongoing reminder.

Nike KD VI “OKC Away”

The road is where teams are tested. Playing away in hostile arenas is where KD feels his game is tested and perfected. Whether it’s the front row or last row, KD wants all the fans on the road to be able to see his KD VI Away shoe with his black, orange and blue color combination.

Nike KD VI “Precision Timing”

Inspired by the precision craftsmanship of a wristwatch, the KD VI includes both performance and aesthetic cues tied to timing and clockwork. Whether it’s the hidden outsole detailing or radial brushed texture marks on the midsole, this special colorway accentuates details with a metallic palette.
