Nike KD 8: A great on the court

Given the technologies that the Nike KD 8 is equipped with, to say that it's "great" already sounds like an understatement. Players who wear this shoe are expected to enjoy the following benefits:

Comfortable support. The Flyweave and Flywire that make up the upper work together to deliver support without compromising comfort.

Nike KD 8 upper

Responsive cushioning. The Zoom Air cushioning system makes sure that impact protection is provided without setting aside court feel or responsiveness.

Nike KD 8 collar

Amazing grip. The Nike KD 8 surely did not fix what's not broken; it still has the KD7's killer traction.

KD 8 from Nike: Performer and charmer

The Nike KD 8 is as much an off-court charmer as it is an on-court performer. This low-top basketball shoe comes in more than ten colorways that will surely make it hard for fans to choose. The following are some of the most notable:

July 4th. The fourth of July is easily among the favorite holidays of Kevin Durant. He loved the annual barbecues and the opportunity it gives for families and friends to have a reunion. The "July 4th" colorway is one of the first colorways to be made available.

Hunt's Hill Sunrise.  The Hunt's Hill Sunrise colorway pays tribute to Hunt's Hill, the place where Kevin Durant did his exercises as a child. This orange-on-black ensemble serves as a reminder of the rewards of hard work, especially when one starts early.
