Nike KD 8 Elite “Away”–High top boost performance review

The Nike KD 8 Elite “Away” edition will be worn by Kevin Durant during the 2016 NBA Playoffs, as Nike Basketball debuts their Elite Series for their signature athletes.

This Nike KD 8 coming in Elite form will feature a Black, Metallic Gold and Sail color combination. Black is places across the kevlar infused Nike Flywire while Metallic Gold hits the Swoosh by the toe and on the collar. Other details include hits of Silver, Sail running through the midsole and a translucent outsole.

The shoe features a combination of Black and Gold throughout the kevlar infused Nike Flywire and compression sock upper. The midsole is done in Sail that sits atop a full-length Zoom Air icy translucent outsole.


Now we get it .

The design of compression sock upper , normal people wont buy it , but actually it is amazing design which useful in competing . KD8 Elite Away always the loving of by fans .

Tights material socks collar fitting skin for protection, integrated elastic mesh foam material in boots, all is comfort  when playing , there is not squeeze on feet when we wear it . And KD 8 used full palm Zoom . Though it is not very soft, but enough to ensure comfortable  with  cushioning and no longer time when star up . Especial the grain is easy to collect the dust .  but grip performance is quite good,

Here are some advantage as below :

The forefoot looks like most of it will be independent from the structure of the shoe – which comes in the form of a foam and mesh bootie.The material is comfortable even wear a long time . The full length Zoom also very great for protection . 

There are sections that have been sewn on for obvious reasons, but this will reduce the weight.

The sock  design   compression to   your ankle much like a compressionsleeve, it is kind of a protection .Not very bad actually .

However , the disadvantage is  the sock design too , there is small space for forefeet .I suggest that just take over a half of size . That is will be fit .

Casual appeal took a huge hit, but I’m sure someone will like them.

Overall , The Nike KD 8 aways actually really great for the material and cushion . Especial for the fan of high top .
