As the eight signature shoe of Kevin Durant, the Nike KD 8 made some impressive and serious impression on sneaker heads and fans.
Almost two months ago, Nike made an insane post-season release of the KD 8 Elite with its calf-length make. A month later, they released another KD 8 using Durant’s leg tattoo as the inspiration for the upper’s design. Now, Nike will be releasing another – and probably the last – KD 8 – the Nike KD 8 EXT “Floral Finish”.
Nike KD 8 EXT Floral Finish
Color:Black/Black-Gym Red-Summit White
Release Date:May 7, 2016
Right now, the end of Nike KD 8’s lifecycle is looming and a few weeks from now, it will be the KD 9 to grace the shelves of Nike stores.
The Nike release dates 2016 for Kevin Durant’s latest signature shoe is set to drop off on May 7th. The pair’s release is just in time for spring and will also coincide with the upcoming Mothers’ Day celebration this year.
Thanks to the earlier releases of the Nike KD paying homage to another KD 8 released earlier this year, the Aunt Pearl, the EXT Floral Finish is nothing new to the eye of sneakerheads. What will make its release quite notable though is that it’ll be the last model for the KD 8 line which is probably why it’s dubbed as an EXT release by Nike.
Nevertheless, floral graphics have always been a good design for Nike KD 8 especially if you consider the nice combination of the Gym Red floral designs placed against the seamless black upper of the newest KD 8. The result? The shoes look very luxurious and stylish. The white midsole added even more to the simple yet elegant look of the KD 8 EXT which is also known as a “Mothers’ Day” release given its dropping off date.
Sneaker News provided more than enough pictures of the KD 8 Floral Finish and the shoes deserves much praise for its beautiful aesthetics.
Up close, the shoes upper is a canvas of printed roses dressed in Red and Black which is very eye-catching. On the side of the shoes is the Swoosh branding done in black leather which looks subtle and tasteful. The white midsole is also another classy addition lending the shoes a very elegant look and highlights the printed upper even more. There’s also the fact that the pair utilizes a black outsole and comes near perfect with a Zoom cushioning unit.
Without a doubt, the Nike KD 8 EXT Floral Finish would be a much awaited sneaker release this week. Stay tuned for more updates on sneaker releases.
