words // Brandon Richard

On September 29, 1988, Kevin Durant was born in Washington D.C. to parents Wayne and Wanda Pratt. Throughout his youth, KD would hone his craft playing AAU and high school basketball ball in the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) area. This Thursday, ahead of Durant’s fifth All-Star appearance, Nike is taking him back home.

The ‘DC’ Nike KD 6 takes on a patriotic arrangement of red, white and blue. Light Crimson represents red on the shoe’s synthetic upper, which is helped by obsidian accents and a light beige midsole. Multi-color laces and star-filled KD logos cap off the look.

Look for these new Nike basketball shoes to release this Thursday, February 6 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

words // Brandon Richard

A holiday staple since 2010, Nike Basketball unveils its Christmas Day signature sneaker pack for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. Not only are the shoes decked out in festive colors, but they’re also linked by special logo lacelocks that convert into custom signature ornaments.

The LeBron 11 brings the spirit of Christmas to the beach. A chilly mint base works with bold red accents to create the classic look. The unique geometry of a snowflake combines with the royal palm for a kaleidoscopic ‘palmsicle’ print. A frosty translucent outsole finishes off the look below.

Ahead of next February’s Kobe 9 launch, the Kobe 8 sheds its skin. A bold modern interpretation of aggressive snake scales are attached to a translucent mesh shroud. The holiday season is reflected by hits of neon mama green and chrome gold.

Lastly, Kevin Durant’s KD 6 is a twist on traditional Christmas aesthetic. A Fair Isle style Christmas sweater pattern adorns the upper, while Christmas plaid is printed on the collar lining. Decorative detail is also worked into the metallic red Flywire upper and speckled mint green sole.

All three of these Nike Basketball shoes will be available here next Thursday, December 26 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

words // Brandon Richard

Nike designer Leo Chang was inspired by the intricate craftsmanship of a wristwatch when he created the Nike KD 6. Small details were integrated without sacrificing the overall aesthetic or performance attributes of the shoe.

The ‘Precision Timing’ KD 6 brings clockwork details to life. Featured on the upper are reflective radial machining lines, which mimic wristwatch detailing. The Swoosh and KD logo also show micro machining marks. Metallic and silver elements further the clockwork storytelling, while mint accents offset the look.

Look for these Kevin Durant shoes to drop here for $130 this Saturday, December 7 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
