The KD VI Men's Basketball Shoe was built with a new, responsive Nike Zoom unit, a more supportive upper and a lower-cut silhouette for better flex through the ankle-resulting in KD's lightest shoe to date.
The KD VI has visible Max Air in the heel for maximum impact protection on hard landings, plus a Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot for lightweight, low-profile responsiveness. Together with a Phylon midsole, they provide exceptional cushioning for every position on the court.
The shoe's two-layer upper is ultra-thin and features Flywire technology-super-light, super-strong nylon cables that support the foot by encasing it in a secure hug. High-wrapped rubber at the outsole adds stability and support during quick cuts.
A multidirectional outsole pattern offers excellent traction and durability for total control, with layers of rubber stripped away in some areas to maintain the shoe's light weight.
The collar of the KD VI is lower than that of its predecessor, allowing more flexibility through the ankle.

- Asymmetrical tongue that integrates with the upper for lockdown
Nike ZoomNike Zoom cushioning is part of the Nike Air family, and—like its siblings—it’s lightweight and durable. Because Nike Zoom cushioning is incredibly thin, it brings the foot closer to the ground and enhances stability, especially during quick cuts and multi-directional movements. After impact, the tightly stretched fibers inside the pressurized air unit quickly bounce back into shape, providing a super-responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re playing on.
FlywireFlywire helps provide ultra-lightweight support and comfort for your foot. It gets its strength from thin nylon fibers strategically placed on the upper of the shoe to hold the foot in place, helping to reduce slippage during activity. This allows for a massive reduction in weight because material is used only where it’s needed for structure.
