Kevin Durant has already started wearing the Nike KD 9 Elite, and now we take a look at this upcoming Nike KD 9 Elite Dark Grey colorway.
Designed for the NBA Playoffs, the Elite version of the Nike KD 9 features a one-piece stretch collar that replaces the Flyknit that was originally used on that area. It also comes with thicker Flywire cables to add for a better lockdown fit. But Nike kept its original full-length visible Zoom unit that’s seen on the non-Elite KD 9.
This release features a Dark Grey upper with Metallic Silver on the Nike Swoosh logos and Hyper Jade on the Air sole unit.
While an official stateside release has yet to be announced, the Nike KD 9 Elite in the Dark Grey is already scheduled to debut on February 23rd in Asia.
