Night watch: The KD6 Texas
At first glance, the Nike KD 6 is a jolting blend of vivid orange, stark black and of course, glow green. There's more to this colorway than meets the eye, though: An homage to Kevin Durant's alma mater, the University of Texas. All it took was one year at UT for Durant to be picked up by the NBA. Durant still returns to the Lonestar State for games now and then, cheering the Longhorns to victory.
If you've never stood under a Texas night sky, it's a jaw-dropping sight. With no city lights or tall buildings to block your vision, constellations are clearer than ever. The upper on these kicks emulates that, with glow-in-the-dark flecks and a signature swoosh against a pitch-black background.
Regardless of whether you've had this experience, this electric KD6 colorway will light the way through all of your nocturnal adventures. Starting Oct. 10, pick up a pair at JimmyJazz.com or in stores. Then, take a glance down at your feet and go stargazing.
How's that for an astronomy lesson?
