Though KD recently missed the gamewinner at the Drew League, his upcoming sneakers are spot on. Each pair has been crafted to perfection with each and every detail accounted for. We have a prime example in the Nike KD 6 “Meteorology” that the folks at Nike Basketball officially unveiled today. Based off of Durant’s inclinations to become a weatherman if basketball didn’t pan out, Nike crafted the Nike KD 6 colorway. Well obviously basketball panned out but this colorway stands as a testament to his 2nd choice: the study of weather and the atmosphere.
The interesting part about the kicks is the use of the olive green. Preliminary pics made the kicks seem like they were only black and red, but high res pics showed the brilliance of the addition of the olive green. The red offsets the black and olive green perfectly. The half black half olive upper features a meteorological surface map in the atomic red color. Above that layer in black is a triangular pattern and map coordinates for several stops along KD’s career. In a few triangles there’s graphics denoting different types of weather. The kicks feature three distinct technologies: Nike Flywire, Nike Zoom, Max Air and Hyperfuse. The Nike Basketball kicks are set to drop August 3rd with a retail of $130.
