Created in collaboration with designer Leo Chang, the breakthrough basketball shoe features a calf-length compression sock, full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with Kevlar® aramid fiber. Strategically placed non-stretch woven materials ensure a snug, secure fit while foam provides protection and comfort.

“Transitioning from a low to high is a decision we made with confidence based on our ongoing feedback from Durant to always push the limit on innovative design,” says Chang.

“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.”

 

Three key benefits of the KD8 Elite include:
1. Built-in, crew-length compression sock for enhanced support.

2. Full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning for a responsive ride.

3. Flywire technology with Kevlar ® aramid fiber for superior lockdown.

 

The KD8 Elite white colorway is available globally April 14 at nike.com and select retail locations. Two additional colorways will be available May 5 (grey) and May 26 (black).

The KD8 Elite will be available at Nike Park Fort, Nike Forum Greenhills, Nike Stadium Rockwell, and all Titan shops. Retail price will be at 10,495 PHP.
