Most were how shocked how high the Nike KD 8 Elite went, however there is an even higher pair which is the Nike KD 8 Elite High.
Durant was spotted wearing this pair in warmups which confirms what Leo Chang had previously said, there will be a higher cut model.
When Nike Basketball gave us the official unveiling of the Nike KD 8 Elite, he expressed how by the end of the season that players are fatigued and compression is important.
“There’s one he’s actually going to wear that goes all the way up to his knees. That’ll be pretty cool. Just from a product standpoint, we’re looking on how to blend the tight that he normally wears—in sock or shoe,” Chang said. “What if we were to literally integrate all that together into one product—so that it almost feels seamless where you don’t know where the next layer starts. That was the idea behind that—to push for something more futuristic.”
The pair shown is known as the ‘Creamsicle’ Nike KD 8 Elite High and as you can see is dressed in predominate Orange with minor Blue accents.
