For the first time ever, Nike confers a lifestyle makeover to Kevin Durant’s sixth signature shoe, creating an introductory Nike Sportswear extension that draws inspiration from the chilly climate of Durant’s Maryland hometown. The upcoming Nike KD 6 EXT “Gum” takes on a winter boot aesthetic, highlighted by a unique gum upper and metal D-ring eyelets. Pops of raspberry red accent the shoe’s outsole outrigger, heel Air-Sole unit and lining, which combine with the bright blue laces to break up the tonal gum rubber coloring. (Similar to the PB & Js, these also draw a connection to Durant’s favorite childhood food.) Look for the kicks to launch this Saturday at select Nike retailers.
