Earlier today, Nike.com released a sneak peek of Kevin Durant’s signature sneaker – the Nike KD VI – officially unveiling 5 new colorways, as well as when we can expect those sneakers to release. While we’ve already shown you previews of a few of the colorways (the “PB & J”, “Away”, and “Precision Timing”, fka “Grey Mint”), there weren’t yet release dates tied to those kicks, so the press release was welcome news. Hit the jump for a look at the upcoming sneakers, as well as the release dates and descriptions of each shoe, courtesy of Nike.com.

Nike KD VI “Texas”: Durant has fond memories of his days playing in Texas. Inspired by the state’s magnificent stars and big sky, the shoe includes a burnt orange, black and mint color palette. – Release Date: October 10th
Nike KD VI “Peanut Butter And Jelly”: Aunt Pearl would always bring a young KD his favorite childhood snack, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, when he was away from home.
