Presented under the premise that Nike athletes have developed the sort of super-human performance abilities that make them archetypal heroes from comics, TV and movies, the Nike KD 6 Elite Hero is designed for the superhuman specifications of Kevin Durant. Nike Designer Leo Chang had envisioned the Nike KD 6 as featuring the precision craftsmanship and fine details of a wristwatch, and for the first time in a KD signature shoe, the build includes a full-length, visible Nike Zoom unit that runs through the entire midsole. The premium aesthetic is emphasized with a turbo green colorway complemented with Flywire technology, as well as Kevlar aramid fibers delivering lockdown support. The kicks launch May 9th at select Nike Basketball retailers and online.
