So it’s been almost a month since the Nike KD 8 Elite was unveiled. The feature/characteristic that stands out the most on the KD 8 Elite is theĀ calf-length compression sock that runs halfway up your ankle. If you though that was kind of strange then you’ll be blown away by this new version.

Yesterday Kevin Durant was seen wearing a higher version of the Nike KD 8 Elite during shoot-around. As you can see in the images above the compression sock is no longer calf length but now rises almost all the way up to Durant’s knees. The colorway on this Nike KD 8 Elite High comes in an orange upper with blue accents on the branding and laces.

Do you think that anyone would ever buy these if they released? Take a look at the images above of KD rocking them and let us know your thoughts below.

Author’s Take

If that compression sock does what it’s supposed to do then that’s fine, but there is NO REASON whatsoever that people should be wearing this shoe off the basketball court. You’d look like a straight up fool.
