Kevin Durant with the five colorways launching this season through September.

The KD8 blends technical innovation with colorway narratives inspired by pivotal moments and themes that shape Kevin Durant.  The launch season features five KD8 colorways.

Durant’s love for the July 4th holiday began with annual backyard barbeques.  Independence Day for KD now starts with a morning workout and ends with quality time around friends and family.  The KD8 July 4th, the first available colorway of Durant’s eighth signature model, is available now

The four remaining colorways all reflect Durant’s lifelong commitment to hard work.  The KD8 V8 colorway pulls inspiration from Durant’s Camaro, a physical reminder of the rewards of hard work.  Durant’s workouts at Hunt’s Hill, which began at age 11, lend inspiration to the KD8 Hunt’s Hill Sunrise and KD8 Hunt’s Hill Night colorways.  Durant’s 2013-14 MVP honor comes alive in the KD8 Suit colorway.

Durant will reveal additional, hidden details shaping each KD8 shoe over the coming weeks.
