Nike and Kevin Durant have released the KD8, Durant's eight signature shoe. "The KD8 features two technical firsts in a Nike Basketball shoe: a Flyweave upper and an articulated full-length Zoom Air unit. These elements work in tandem to provide Durant with a versatility, fit and responsiveness engineered for basketball’s most dynamic player." Nike. Here is what KD had to say about his new shoe and the technology that has gone into it “When I first tested the KD8, I instantly loved the springy response of the Zoom Air combined with the natural feel of the Flyweave. I didn’t want to take it off." Nike and KD drew inspiration for the Sabertooth Tiger, a predator that KD has used as inspiration for his game and has tattooed on his leg. The 4th of July colorway will become available soon.
