The release date for the first colorway of the Nike KD 8 Elite is only a couple of weeks away and Kevin Durant has officially switched over to wearing nothing but elites as the regular season winds down and the playoffs start in a couple of weeks.

But as always, NBA players love to rock special PE colorways of their sneakers that will never hit shelves. Durant did so last night when he wore this OKC Home colorway that you see pictured above. This KD 8 Elite is the regular Elite and not the High that almost goes up to his knees and features white on the majority of the shoe along with orange and blue accents to complete the OKC theme.

We’ll probably be seeing KD wear these or something similar during the last few games of the season and what he hopes will be a deep playoff run. What are your thoughts on this colorway of the KD 8 Elite? Would you cop if they released?

Author’s Take

I like Kevin Durant as a player but I’m not a fan of this new KD 8 Elite. I just think that the extended compression sock is a weird look.
