The Nike KD 8 is the eighth edition of NBA player Kevin Durant's signature Nike basketball shoe.
Originally released in June of 2015, this latest re-working of the Nike KD 8 features a black-and-gold colorway with an impressive woven black upper and metallic gold detailing and accents. The gold touches are mainly apparent in the Kevin Durant monogram branding on the tongue of the new Nike KD 8. Lower on the shoe, the KD saber tooth sole pattern appears in a new crimson and gum color scheme.
The Nike KD 8 is a renovation of a previously released sneaker that is making waves with a sleeker, more formal look than former iterations of the shoe. While earlier colorways of the Nike KD 8 had an athletic, casual look to them, this re-imagining positions the Nike KD 8 as a grown-up shoe worthy of its upscale price point.
