Today we’re getting another look at the Nike KD 6 “Bamboo”, which we initially previewed back in June. Inspired by the bamboo plant, Nike draws some unique parallels between the plant and Kevin Durant‘s development. Apparently, in its fifth year of growth, the bamboo plant goes through a significant transformation.
Nike describes the design as:
Combined with the “precision meets performance” design philosophy of the KD VI, the Bamboo colorway echoes the traditional Chinese values associated with bamboo: balance, harmony, toughness and versatility.
Even the colorway is reminiscent of the plant, as the shoe trades between a green and bronze color scheme. Other features include some graphical designs as well as a bamboo print. As of now, the shoe will release at Nike Basketball accounts on September 14th.
