Initially dubbed “Ocean Fog,” it seems that this upcoming rendition of the Nike KD 8 is nicknamed “Megalodon,” as it takes cues from an extinct shark species.

Compared to the current Great White measuring in at 20 feet, this particular shark is three times larger at 59 feet long. An official explanation has yet to reveal the theme, although various social media accounts from the Swoosh label have shared that this upcoming pair is dubbed the “Megalodon.”

Overall flaunting a predominantly deep ocean blue hue across its intricately woven upper, tongue and laces, vibrant pops of orange are applied on the toe box, tongue tab and outsole. A clean white midsole, silver Swooshes and orange insoles consists as finishing details.

You can find this pair at select Nike accounts starting tomorrow, Saturday, January 16th for $180.
