Summer has always been serious for Kevin Durant. Back in 2011 when the upcoming NBA season was in jeopardy, basketball didnâ€™t stop for the Thunder superstar.
Making an impromptu appearance in New York City, KD lit up for 66 points and a W at world-famous Rucker Park, just a few shy of the all-time court record. In cognizance of the classic showing, Duranâ€™t latest signature sneaker has received a â€œNYC 66â€³ style code. A bright orange upper representing the jersey color KD tore up Rucker in is kept in check by graphite and light grey accenting to create an eye-catching appearance.
Promoted by Kevin Durantâ€™s new â€œNicknamesâ€ Commercial, the Nike KD VI â€œNYC 66â€³ will be available globally on August 17th at select Nike outlets, along with correlating accessories. Does your calendar include the 66, or is this colorway going to be nixed? Punch a line into the feedback box below, and keep it locked to Nice Kicks for all of your sneaker news and information.
