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.
