The KD8 is a Nike basketball shoe that is inspired by a moment that didn't take place on the basketball court. This may sound odd, but not when you figure out that the shoe is inspired by one of the most pivotal moments in the life and career of 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant -- the day he accepted that MVP award.
Durant took to the stage rocking a very bold color-shifting suit and delivered a refreshingly honest and sincere speech that gained him even more fans than he already had. The KD8 Suit Shoe is directly inspired by the suit he wore while picking up his MVP honor.
The shoe is a great example of Nike seeking creative forms of inspiration for its basketball shoe offerings.
