In addition to announcing the Nike KD VI performance shoe, while in D.C. Nike also announced a Nike Sportswear version of the KD VI. The shoe takes a lifestyle approach to the KD line and expands the feel of KD’s style and attitude to an off-court setting. For the first model set to hit retailers in September, Nike used Kevin’s birthday as the theme. Inspired by a photo of Kevin celebrating his birthday with his Mom and Aunt, who all happen to have birthdays very close to each other, the model features a light denim over the upper with a polka dot pattern to match the shirt KD was wearing in the picture.
For the NSW version of the sneaker, Nike is pricing the shoe at $120. For those looking to pick up a pair, the Nike KD VI NSW “Birthday” will be hitting retailers on September 14 and will be a North American only release.
