Nike Basketball now presents the Nike KD 8 Elite, a technically advanced, provocative new version of the Nike KD 8 as Kevin Durant gets ready for the NBA Playoffs and his chase to becoming a champion.
Created in collaboration with designer Leo Chang, the breakthrough basketball shoe features a calf-length compression sock, full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with Kevlar® aramid fiber. Strategically placed non-stretch woven materials ensure a snug, secure fit while foam provides protection and comfort.
“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.”
Nike KD 8 Elite Release Date
Look for the Nike KD 8 Elite “White” colorway to release globally on April 14th, 2016 at select Nike Basketball retail stores, including Nike.com. The Nike KD 8 Elite “Grey” will debut on May 5th, followed by the “Black” Nike KD 8 Elite on May 26th.
