Kevin Durant’s Nike KD V Elite Looks Like A New, Improved Version Of The Nike KD V
One of my favorite sneakers of the last six months is the Nike KD V. Although it’s a bit more costly than Kevin Durant‘s last few signature sneakers, the KD V is a great-looking shoe that is available for a fraction of the cost of the Nike LeBron X and Nike Kobe 8. And, just like those sneakers, it’s available in a ton of different colorways, which makes it even more attractive to all of the sneakerheads out there. So, Nike is going to start offering up a new, improved version of the KD V soon in the form of a KD V Elite sneaker (there are also LeBron X Elite and Kobe 8 Elite sneakers coming soon, too). And, while we still haven’t seen all of the new colorways that the KD V will be available in yet (save for the photo you see above, which features a pair of KD V Elite sneakers that KD wore late last week), we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of the KD V Elite.
The KD V Elite is essentially a KD V that’s been repurposed as a low-top sneaker. It features a carbon fiber heel counter for added support, Flywire throughout the sneaker, and a large tongue that gives Nike a lot of room to play around with additional colorways. It’s not drastically different from the KD V. But, it’s going to give Nike the chance to add some crazy colors to the sneaker moving forward.
Recently, Sole Collector got an exclusive look at some of the colorways that Nike is playing around with right now. We’re not sure if any of the sneakers seen below are actually going to drop. But, they’ll give you a good idea of the look Nike is going for with these sneakers. Sole Collector also got an up-close-and-personal look at the new boxes that are going to be used for the KD V Elite, so can take a look at what those will look like as well. Now that you’ve seen what Nike is going for with the Nike KD V Elite, do you like the sneaker and will you pick up a pair when they drop on April 27? Or, would you rather just stick with the regular old KD V sneaker? Let us know below.
