We scored the first look at the latest KD Elite model last week when we peeped the Elite Youth Basketball League joints, but that wasn't meant to be our first exposure. This right here, this is what we were meant to see first, the first general release KD7 Elite. Although Durant won't be taking to the court in them for post-season – because, you know, he won't be playing at all on account of that gammy foot (D Rose redux? Nike sure hopes not) – but maybe some of his Thunder boys will post-up in them outta respect. Let's throw some Nike tech words at you to get you excited about what this model boasts: Hyperposite, Flywire, Zoom Air, err, Swoosh, laces, etc. Finishline is the connect for these from April 18.
