Cheap KD 9 is something that feels authentically modern, so when you see the “built-in, crew-length compression sock,” on the KD8 “Elite” remember new almost always means polarizing. Often, that can mean some backlash because original can also appear silly or odd. That’s just the nature of new.But Nike’s KD8 Elite series with the aforementioned sock, “visible Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with a Kevlar ® aramid fiber” is the latest brainstorm from Nike’s basketball head honcho, Leo Chang.We’re guessing the aramid fiber acts as a bulwark to support the purposefully light Flywire nylon, so there’s a minimum of bell-and-whistle weight, but the upper still locks the forefoot and ankle in place when you’re making a cut, or landing awkwardly on a rebound.
Latest Jordans 2017 chatted with Leo in Toronto, and we’ll be sharing that mind-expanding conversation later in the week. But for now, keep an open mind. We actually (somewhat sheepishly) like the Kobe 9 Elite, but we also have weak-as-hell ankles, and don’t really care about the wrestling aesthetic that turned some critics off.The smooth integration of the sock and upper feels like another step in the evolution of sneakers. For that, and for revealing it during a massive moment in Kevin Durant’s career, the Nike team has to be applauded.The KD8 Elite colorway in white is available on April 14 at nike.com and select retail locations. Two additional colorways will be available May 5 (grey) and May 26 (black).
Jordans For Cheap is beginning to surface in more and more colorways that we can expect to arrive at retailer in the following weeks. After giving you a detailed look at the Ocean Fog colorway earlier today, we not have more images to show you of the Black History Month colorway.Having already taken a couple of different looks at this KD 8 we not get our best look yet at this sneaker with images courtesy of shoeperstar7. The Nike KD 8 BHM utilizes a Black flyweave upper with colorful tribal accents landing on the Swoosh, tongue and laces. Multicolor speckling has also been added to the midsole and heel along with blue detailing on the midsole and the BHM logo on the heel.
