Nike's Post-Season Sneaker for Kevin Durant Is Insane

Nike Basketball will release the boldest sneaker of its post-season Elite line yet in the KD 8 Elite, shown here. The Kevin Durant shoe, designed by Nike's Leo Chang, has a calf-length compression sock extending up the leg and Kevlar fibers on its upper. The result is a silhouette that lands in territory foreign to the KD line with its ultra-high cut. Chang describes the sneaker as an genre-bending piece of footwear. "The KD8 Elite is conceptually designed to blur the lines between the shoe, sock and tight; seamlessly transitioning between each so you can’t differentiate where one begins and the other ends," he says. The Nike KD 8 Elite will release first in the white colorway on April 14, followed by the grey on May 5 and the black on May 26.
