Let’s be honest here – the Nike KD V colorways thus far have been good, but short of great. The standards set by the Nike KD IV (the Nerf, Weatherman) were tough to meet, and now that we’ve closed the book on the Nike KD V and moved onto the Elite, can we expect some real heat? This first look at the Nike KD V Elite “EYBL” shouts a resounding “yes”, because this is colorway is definitely one of the craziest we’ve seen out of the fifth model – although these are just a Promo and likely won’t be released. There are too many details to drool over here, starting with the focused heel splatter on the midsole, the streaky graphics on the upper that give the illusino of speed, the contrasting visible flywire, and the translucent green outsole. We’ve got a detailed gallery below, so check it out and stay tuned for more updates because for now, these are a Promo for the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL).
