The Nike KD V was released in a number of great colorways last year, but not every great colorway cooked up by Nike makes it to retail. This "Thunder Camo" colorup of Kevin Durant's fifth signature shoe with Nike Basketball did not release, but is available in a lone size 12 at eBay. If the upper wasn't enough to catch your eye, peep the icy blue outsole. If this pair had hit shelves, would you have copped or dropped?
This Saturday, Sneaker Con invades the south by making its first official stop in Houston. To celebrate the event, Sneaker Con has teamed up with Kickasso for the launch of the Nike KD V "Heat Advisory" Custom. This fiery take on the KD V sees hot hues all over the upper in graphic fashion, backed by a black base. 24 pairs of the Nike KD V "Heat Advisory" Custom will release exclusively at Sneaker Con Houston this weekend.

Despite Kevin Durant's Instagram handle "easymoneysniper," we have yet to see any colorways crafted as an ode to the basketball superstar's self-declared nickname. Taking up this task on the Nike KD V, AMAC Customs goes in on the recently retired signature. Tackling the sniper aspect, camo print covers the upper, including carefully painted-on sniper rifle crosshairs. "Easy" comes in stencil sprayed to the ankle collar, with an appropriate dollar sign seemingly residing underneath the Nike swoosh. What's your take on the sniper-spun colorway? Should Nike adopt this idea on the KD VI?
The kickoff colorway of the Nike KD VI provides inspiration on the Nike KD V “Pre-Heat” Custom. Created by AMAC Custom Kicks, this shoe sports a striped upper, set off by bright pink branding and green trim. Blue laces and dark grey lining provide contrast, with white capping off the outsole.
