It's smack bang in the middle of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning no NBA, but summer is serious and the Swoosh ain't letting up on serious releases. The Nike KD VI was launched recently with more colourways promised, and we're starting to see a steady stream of newbies coming out, including this new 'Bamboo' makeup. The shoe was oh-so-appropriately launched in Shanghai as Durant embarked on a world tour for Nike, and takes its design cues from the aging process of bamboo, which typically turns green in its fifth year (which also alludes to Durant's time with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and possibly the Seattle Supersonics where he started). These bamboo shoes have already dropped in China but the rest of the world will have to wait until September 14 to get a taste. Pics via Hypebeast.
