Nike has granted us a sneak peek at the eighth installment of Kevin Durant's signature shoe via this preliminary sketch from Nike designer Leo Chang. According to the Swoosh, this Durant's most technically advanced shoe that to date, featuring a design component inspired by the saber-tooth tiger (a tie-in to KD's leg tattoo). The sketch reveals a radical departure from its predecessor, with the Dynamic Flywire contained in the forefoot and midfoot strap ditched altogether. Word on the streets is that the KD 8 will launch this summer. Stay tuned for the full reveal ahead of its official release date.
