Nike has officially unveiled Kevin Durant’s eighth signature sneaker, the KD8. They are dubbing this as Durant’s most innovative Nike shoe ever. After suffering from ongoing foot problems, it looks like KD and his doctors may have sent Nike back to the lab to create something that fits the 2014 MVP’s feet better.
For the first time ever a Nike basketball shoe features a Flyweave upper and an articulated full-length Zoom air unit. This sneaker is very light, flexible and provides responsives and a lockdown fit. Nike went in on this one, creating a shoe that is tailor made for KD’s game.

The KD8 debuts June 23 on NIKEiD for personalized customization. The KD8 July 4th colorway is available on June 27 in limited quantities, followed by the KD8 V8 colorway on July 11.
The heel of the KD8 is inspired by the sabertooth tattoo on Durant’s right leg.
