Endowed with a level of basketball talent that virtually ensured a career in the NBA, Kevin Durant had a backup plan nonetheless: a meteorology gig as a TV weatherman. Durant’s early fascination with the weather is reflected in this upcoming “Meteorology” colorway of his sixth signature Nike basketball shoe. The low-top silhouette carries a Hyperfuse upper finished in a mix of stealth black and olive green, accented with a Doppler radar mapping graphic in atomic red with reflective detailing. Topographical map and grid patterns across the Flywire-infused upper depict the various locations throughout Durant’s career, appearing as reflective longitudinal coordinates for Austin, Oklahoma City and Washington, D.C. Get the matching Nike KD Elite Crew Socks from Nike.com now, and look for the Nike KD VI “Meteorology” to launch at select retailers and online starting August 3rd.
