In preparation for the NBA All-Star game which is in New Orleans on Feb. 16, Nike has unveiled a "NOLA Gumbo League" lineup of Kevin Durant's, LeBron James' and Kobe Bryant's signature shoes.
The Nike KD VI has seen many iterations (who can forget the Maryland Blue Crab, among others), but the latest version - dubbed the KD VI Illusion - has glow-in-the-dark patterns and comes with a commemorative tarot card.
"Not everything is what it first appears to be in New Orleans. Similarly, Durant defies the perception of a near seven-footer – an illusion of sorts. His limitless scoring range is redefining the perception of a forward. Celebrating the magic of KD’s versatility, the KD VI Illusion showcases hand-drawn patterns on the upper emulating Durant’s fluidity on the court. A glow-in-the-dark outsole also represents the “spark” of KD’s game."
