If the recent Bruce Lee-related decorations, USA color schemes, and outer space thematics are any indication, the Kyrie 6 has become a silhouette that is almost always expected to arrive with a story anytime it reveals a new option. And for its next offering, the floor general’s signature kicks are keeping this trend in motion by now diving into the historical archives of the Swoosh’s imprint to inspire its latest. Trading out the slash marks seen on the aforementioned Bruce Lee iterations, this next colorway focuses on retro branded embroidery executed through enlarged Nike text affixed to the lateral panels, oversized pinwheels on the medial walls, and vintage cursive Sportswear logos that peak through the translucent blue midfoot straps. All of these adornments fall against a clean backdrop of white tumbled leather base materials, with supporting accents involving that of vibrant blues and yellows infused towards the Swooshes, sock liners, and midsoles, as well as a flashy pink hit on the medial mold reminiscent of throwback ACG jackets. Keep it locked for word on an official release date, and note that they will likely be dropping on Kyrie 6 PreHeat and at the below retailers for $85 in the coming weeks.
With the MyPLAYER Nation playoffs in full swing, Nike Basketball and NBA 2K20 have readied a fourth and final “Gamer Exclusive” playoff drop: the KD 13 “Funk.” Kevin Durant‘s latest joins Paul George’s PG 4 “Digi-Camo,” Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Zoom Freak 1 “All Bros 4,” and LeBron James’s LeBron 17 “Bron 2K Playoffs” as a play-to-win style with a limited release only available to active gamers.Inspired by Durant’s love of funk music, the “Funk” combines the green shades from the KD 13 “Chill” with a print reminiscent of the KD 13 “Hype.” This wild assemblage features several flowers and leaves interwoven with opulent gold chains, a mix that nearly covers the entirety of the upper. Contrast is provided by a green and pink Swoosh that dips down on the midfoot, green tongues, and black heels/collars. Midsoles are dressed in green as well, with a pop of red surrounding Durant’s #7. Double-stacked Zoom is stuffed in the forefoot for a responsive feel, with a red oval on the green outsole demarcating its placement.If you’re looking to secure a pair, you’ll need to link your NBA 2K and Nike SNKRS accounts, then win an NBA 2K20 MyPLAYER Nation playoff game between May 4 at 10 A.M. EST and the same time on May 8. If you do, you’ll be able to purchase a pair on Nike KD 13 — but you’ll want to be quick, as sizes are limited.
