Aesthetically, the Nike KD 8 Elite changes drastically in terms of what we're traditionally use to see on Kevin Durant's signature sneakers. The biggest change is the built-in compression sock, which according to the designer Leo Change was a direct input from Kevin Durant himself. The sneaker also features KD staple technology like a full-length Zoom Air unit and Flywire support, which has also been enhanced with Kevlar to withstand grueling post-season demands.
The Nike KD 8 Elite will debut in the "White" colorway on April 14th, 2106, The "Grey" colorway will debut on May 5th, 2016, and the "Black" colorway will debut on May 26th, 2016. All colorways will be available at Nike.com and select Nike Basketball retailers worldwide.
