As Kevin Durant and his squad head into the home stretch of the season. The swoosh unveils the Nike KD8 Elite designed by Leo Chang, as an update to his eighth signature shoe built for the playoffs. Highlights of the shoe includes built-in, crew-length compression sock for enhanced support, full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning for a responsive ride and flywire technology with Kevlar aramid fiber for superior lockdown.
“Transitioning from a low to high is a decision we made with confidence based on our ongoing feedback from Durant to always push the limit on innovative design,” says Chang.The KD8 Elite is conceptually designed to blur the lines between the shoe, sock and tight; seamlessly transitioning between each so you can’t differentiate where one begins and the other ends.”
The KD8 Elite white colorway is available globally April 14 at nike.com and select retail locations. While the remaining colorways drop May 5 (grey) and May 26 (black).
