Notwithstanding Kevin Durant spent just a single year at the University of Texas before declaring himself eligible for the ’07 NBA draft, the Maryland native made the most of his time as a Longhorn. Durant averaged 25.8 points while starting every game during his freshman year, eventually leading the team to the second round of the NCAA tournament. And just as Durant made a huge impact on UT’s basketball program, his time in Texas left a lasting impression he won’t soon forget. An upcoming “Texas” colorway of the Nike KD 6 pays tribute to the player’s brief yet significant college career, featuring the Long Horns’ signature burnt orange coloring with green glow accents for a pop of color. A matching backpack and Elite socks are set to release alongside the limited-edition kicks, with the entire collection launching in stores and online starting October 10th.
Release Date: October 10th, 2013 (Thursday)
