Nike’s official press release for Kevin Durant’s new Nike KD VI People's Champ Shoes not only came with specifics on the shoe, but it also gave news of a few upcoming colorways. Amongst those mentioned were the buzzing “D.C. Pre Heat” and the “Meteorology” mark ups. A day later we get a look at another colorway on the list, the Nike KD VI “Bamboo”.
An indigenous Asian plant, the bamboo tree is a tall shooting plant with lush green leaves at its apex. The Nike KD VI “Bamboo” takes the plant’s color and imposes it on the Nike Basketball shoe. The outer side of the shoe is a lush green reminiscent of the plants leaves, while the inner side and parts of the tongue and sole are colored like the plants tall brown stem. Also present seems to be shadows of the plant pictured on the brown regions. Look for these to possibly release soon as many of the mention colorways have release dates fairly soon. Check back with KOF as information becomes available.
