The Nike KD Elite was unveiled yesterday and its unique two-piece system took many of us by surprise. We’ve never seen anything quite like it, and of course we were all immediately curious to see what the shoe will look like once you lace them up on your feet. Today we have the first images of the shoe on-feet.

The main new feature on the unconventional KD 8 Elite is the built-in compression sleeve that is attached to actual shoe. Designed to be technically advanced, the shoe also comed equipped with¬†full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with Kevlar aramid fiber. The shoe’s design helps “blur the lines between shoe, sock and tight; seamlessly transitioning between each so you can’t differentiate where one begins and the other ends.”

Are you looking to try this pair on for size? If so, you will be able to do pick up this colorway beginning April 14th, while additional colorways will be dropping May 5th and May 26th.

It’s different, but it’s dope. I’m sure it will perform well and the overall look of the shoe is pretty nice.
