UPDATE: The KD8 launches tomorrow, Saturday, June 27.
Here it is, fam, welcome the Nike KD 8. As the name suggests, this is the eighth signature sneak from Nike and Kevin Durant, and what better way to set things off than emblazoning a sneak in a smothering of red, white and blue! There are some major construction differences from the 8 to its predecessor, with the removal of the forefoot strap and the Foamposite-esque heel construction, in favour of a Dynamic Flywire infused woven upper. Additional structure changes include a tighter formation around the Zoom Air in the heel. Time will only tell how these feel on-foot, but if they feel half as good as they look, we could be on a winner here! Releasing alongside the 'USA' LBJ 12, look for these at stockists including Sneaker Politics, when they drop June 27.
