The Nike KD VI has been an overwhelming favorite across the NBA as numerous players have laced them up through out the season as their every day go to. Recently, as they've done in the past, Nike released the 'Elite' model of their signature shoes for LeBron, Kobe, and KD, which feature premium materials, ultimately coming in at a higher price point for you, the consumer.

Today, our friends at WearTester, put the Elite version of the KD VI to see just how the higher grade version stacks up the original, and if the premium materials make a real difference in performance. For the KD VI Elite, Nike upgraded the original by adding a new traction outsole, full length Air Max cushioning unit, improved Dynamic Flywire, and an increased ventilation system.

Check out WearTesters performance review, and be sure to grab yourself a pair of the Nike KD 6 Elite at Nike.com, and select retailers worldwide.
