The Nike KD 8 “V-8” is the second Nike KD 8 colorway to debut that is inspired by one of Kevin Durant’s first car he bought after being drafted in the NBA, a Cherry Red ride with 600hp.

Advertisment

Its high-octane V-8 was the automotive mirror of KD’s offense, and the perfect way to arrive at the arena before taking it over.

This “V-8” edition of the Nike KD 8 is dressed in a Bright Crimson, Black, and White color scheme. The shoe is built with a Flyweave upper and an articulated full-length Zoom Air unit. A full-length Nike Zoom Air unit specifically designed for the KD8 provides responsive cushioning that moves naturally with Durant’s foot.

One of the key highlights to the shoe is the sabertooth tiger inspiration. The sabertooth is a legendary big cat that Durant adopted in the form of a tattoo above his right ankle. He connected with the ice age cat’s unique predatory instincts, ferocity and prehistoric old soul. Building athlete insight into the KD8, Chang created a one-of-a-kind heel design for the KD8 that mimics a sabertooth’s fangs. This high wrapping midsole detail also serves a functional benefit – keeping Durant’s foot locked in and stable.
