Nike has given Kevin Durant a new version of his eighth signature shoe as he prepares for the NBA season's final stretch. Made in collaboration with Nike designer Leo Chang, the KD8 Elite features a calf-length compression sock, full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with Kevlar aramid fiber. There's also strategically placed non-stretch woven materials to ensure a snug, secure fit, while foam delivers protection and comfort. The inaugural white colorway of the Nike KD8 Elite launches globally on April 14, followed by a grey colorway on May 5 and black on May 26.

Release Date: 4/14/16 (Thursday)
