Nike KD VI - 'Texas' (8)

words // Brandon Richard

Straying away from the usual Longhorns team colors, Nike pays homage Kevin Durant’s time in Texas with a starry make-up of the KD VI.

The new colorway continues deep storytelling that began when Durant launched the Seat Pleasant colorway in his hometown back in June.

Texas’ sky is brought to life with a speckled upper representing stars. Burnt Orange accents pay tribute to Durant’s season at the University of Texas. Green Glow details provide pop throughout.

A high-tech performance shoe, the KD VI is a low-top that features Flywire technology for a secure fit, 180 visible Zoom cushioning, a Phylon midsole for low-the-court feel and a rubber outsole with flex grooves for optimal grip.

You’ll be able to pick up these new Kevin Durant shoes here this Thursday morning. Be sure to follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for release information and updates.
