The Nike KD V Elite will release on April 27th. The sneaker transforms the typical Nike KD V silhouette into a low affair, sort of returning to the form that the sneaker world went crazy over on the Nike Zoom KD IV. The first look we’ve got at the sneaker comes in the form of this “Superhero” colorway, which dons an energetic volt look and a slick looking Air bag on the back end. See more on the Nike KD V Elite (Release date April 27th) after the jump and stay tuned to for more info on the Nike Basketball Elite Series 2.0.

Update: Nike has changed the release date, and the Nike Basketball Elite Series is now releasing April 27th.

KD V ELITE: Ultimate Control

Capturing Kevin Durant’s thunderous power of ultimate control, the new low KD V ELITE debuts in a volt colorway, illuminated by the sharp glow of lightning bolts. The design speaks to Durant’s versatility, shooting accuracy and finely-tuned court vision.

The re-engineered low-top silhouette offers a full range of motion for Durant’s playoff push. Additional enhanced technical highlights include:

  • Carbon fiber heel counter and shank provide lightweight stability for quick cuts
  • Dynamic Flywire technology reinforced with Kevlar® aramid to provide more consistent stability and lockdown
  • Articulated foam tongue provides impact protection and minimizes lace pressure
  • Caged Nike Zoom unit in the heel for responsive cushioning and stability

Yeah, I kinda dig these. I actually dig the simplicity of the styling. I might be in the minority, but I wouldn't mind copping this colorway. It seems to kinda flow.

The Kobe VIII Elite are running shoes, and Kd's are tennis shoes. There ain't for basketball!!!

it is funny that there is people out there, debating about lowtops in basketball... Adidas were the first to push lowtop performance shoes to another level... then there was the Kobes... finally NIke did another lowcut signature shoe. 

Ankle support is actually a myth... the best way to support an ankle injury is to stay low to the ground and an air bubble is not helping in that case. Since it is a Nike shoe it would be so much cooler with their Lunar cushioning... colorway is okay...

This is a good looking shoe. It's nice to have a low top Nike sig option other than Kobe Bryant's.

Wonder how much these will be going for?

These shoes look good.  I think Nike, for a change, took in demand the request for a low KD sneaker to return to the market.  Without losing losing too much of the KD V shape, except for the obvious missing upper, I think it's a nice job.  Now if they had found some way to throw that strap back in there, people might have gone crazy but I can appreciate these.

These are clean. Pretty sure KD won't be rocking this cw in the playoffs. Have sort of a Kobe vibe to them but my only complaint would come 7-9 years down the road when that heel has been worn down and the air bubble burst. I buy shoes for them to last unless I buy it strickly for hooping or work. I still have my OG Flightposites (Golden green and Metallic purple) in good condition

Is this KDV "Sprite Edition"? Colorways look exactly identical. 


Hmmm Lebron might protest.

KDV low tops to me look much better than the hi-tops.
