The Nike KD 8 “USA” is slated to release June 27th. After a down year that saw Kevin Durant plagued by a nagging foot injury in which we saw him skip over the KD 7 in the rare circumstance that he was actually on the floor, 2015 looks to be a bounce-back year for the former MVP. The Nike KD 8 promises some diversity in the footwear department, as Nike Basketball is experimenting with the Jacquard like woven material. The plus side of the decision is that it offers a dynamic array of nearly unlimited choices in terms of patterns and graphics while still remaining lightweight and breathable. The patriotic affair lands with pain splattered, firework like graphics while red, white, and blue striping arrives throughout the JCRD woven base. A snakeskin tongue contrasts bold metallic silver KD branding while a faint herringbone pattern on the translucent red outsole adds traction. Continue onward to see the first retail shots of the KD 8 and let us know if you’re a fan of Kevin Durant’s latest signature in the comments.
