KD8 Elite: Kevin Durant’s eighth signature shoe available soon
Attention shoe fanatics! Nike is giving you another reason to add something to your ever-growing shoe collection. Top-scoring American professional basketball player Kevin Durant will be preparing for the season’s ball game with his all new KD8 Elite – a technically advanced, provocative new version of his eighth signature shoe.
The breakthrough basketball shoe is created in collaboration with designer Leo Chang. “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 shoe features a built-in, crew-length compression sock for enhanced support, full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with Kevlar aramid fiber for superior lockdown. The shoe transitions from a low-top to high-cut silhouette with the compression sock rising from shoe. “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,” Chang adds.
The innovative new design is employed specifically for Durant’s movement in his games. A Flyweave upper and a full-length Nike Zoom air unit ensures a snug and secure fit as well as protection and comfort.
Globally, the KD8 Elite white colorway will be available on April 14 at nike.com and select retail locations. Gray and black additional colorways will be available on May 5 and May 26. In the Philippines, The KD8 Elite will be available at Nike Park Fort, Nike Forum Greenhills, Nike Stadium Rockwell, and all Titan shops, and will retail for P10,495.
