Ahead of the release of KD VI “NYC 66,” Nike has unveiled a spate of official images for the commemorative shoe. The event the shoe celebrates is worth revisiting: an August night in 2011 when Kevin Durant absolutely torched New York City’s legendary Rucker Park for 66 points, just a handful of points short of the all-time Rucker scoring record. KD’s performance spoke to his versatility — highlighted by masterful footwork both indoor and out — while also inspiring a new KD VI Foot Locker commercial, featuring the always funny Hannibal Buress and available for viewing below. As for the stellar Nike KD VI “NYC 66,” the shoe launches at global Nike basketball retailers and online starting August 17th. Matching KD Elite crew socks and backpack will also be available.
Release Date: August 17th, 2013 (Saturday)
