October 01, 2013 KD VI Texas: Deep in the Heart View Gallery Kevin Durant’s love for his days in Austin comes to life in the KD VI Texas launching Oct 10. Kevin Durant’s collegiate days in Texas left a lasting impact on him. Texans’ friendliness and hospitality, combined with the unique ‘keep it weird’ nature of Austin, made an impression he’ll never forget. Paying tribute to Texas, the KD VI Texas colorway continues the deep storytelling that began when KD launched his sixth Nike signature shoe in his hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland, in June. “Austin was like a home away from home from the second I arrived in 2006 – I loved it there,” said Durant. Bringing the Texas big sky to life, the shoe includes a speckled upper representing stars. Burnt orange pays tribute to KD’s beloved Longhorns, while the shoe pops with green glow colored details. The KD VI Texas launches in limited quantities on Oct. 10 at select retail locations and Nike.com. The Nike KD Hyper Elite Crew socks and KD backpack, both matching the KD VI Texas shoe, are also available beginning Oct. 10.
