The sneaker community gets its first look at the KD VI “EYBL”. At a first glance, the colors may look overwhelming as it’s a mixture of purple, orange, green, and red. The most intriguing feature may be the Swoosh and ankle collar liner as it looks to be a tropical print.
The “EYBL” KD VI will feature the Elite full length Air Zoom unit. Rather than the traditional “35” and “6” logo on the tongue, these will feature the Nike EYBL logo. Orange Flywire lies underneath the multi-color mesh. Finished off by a transparent blue outsole, these look to make a great summer sneaker.
The “EYBL” stands for the Elite Youth Basketball League. Nike presents the Elite Youth Basketball by providing programs in select cities to improve the skill set of the future basketball players. Nike also uses this to scout and identify the upcoming superstars. Many current NBA players have been on EYBL teams in the past.
More information from the Nike EYBL page:
For many underclassmen, their first elite camp experience begins at the annual NIKE Elite 100. Available to Freshmen and Sophomores, this camp provides skill development through superior instruction to be considered for the next level. The NIKE Positional Skills Academies, this year hosted by Amar’e Stoudemire, Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving, Deron Williams and Kevin Durant are three days of intense skill instruction along side peers of the same position. Only the top 20 players at each position are invited nationally.
We’re still waiting for more information to release but unfortunately with history, we know that the past models of “EYBL” have been exclusively reserved for participants.
