The KD 8 is composed of a seamless material called Flyweave, meaning there are virtually no limitations when it comes to patterns and styles. If you can print it, the KD 8 can sport it. And if you needed any evidence of that, check out the Nike KD 8 graphic-printed sample that just surfaced.
The shoe starts with a white-based upper, but softly layers on greens, blues and purples in a swirling effect, somewhere between tie-dye and gradient. That same fade is mimicked in the translucent outsole and full-length Zoom Air, bringing an impressive level of balance, while black on the Swoosh and midsole offer bold contrast.
The shoe is almost unquestionably appealing, but here’s the thing: Images of it were shared by Randy Williams, a close friend of Kevin Durant, and someone who often has access to unreleased samples. Just because the shoe just surfaced, doesn’t mean it’s actually destined to launch. Here’s hoping though.
