Finally we get some detailed images of the upcoming Nike KD 8 in the “OKC” colorway. We first caught a glimpse of this new colorway of the KD 8 when Durant broke it out for the first time when the Thunder showed off their new orange alternate uniforms last month.
But since then every time we’ve gotten a new look at the shoe it has been in smaller sizes. That’s until today that we take a look at this men’s pair that has popped up a bit early on eBay. It’s believed that this KD 8 may now be known as the “Opening Night” colorway since he’s expected to wear it for the season opener, much like Kobe and his upcoming colorway of the Kobe 10. The KD 8 “Opening Night” features a color palette that is obviously inspired by the Oklahoma City Thunder with a combination of Blue Lagoon, Bright Citrus, Black and Tide Pool Blue.
Get the best look yet at the men’s pair above and look for this KD 8 at select Nike retailers on October 24th for $180.

I do like Kevin Durant but I’m not a fan of the Thunder colors at all. I’d imagine that it would be hard to pull these off unless you’re wearing a Thunder hat, jersey, t-shirt, shorts or something Thunder-related. Easy pass for me.
