KD8 V8 Blends Strength with Precision

Kevin Durant holding the KD8 V8 colorway that launches July 11.

Kevin Durant’s matte red customized Camaro, a symbol of #35’s tenacity, drives the aesthetic behind the KD8 V8, the first major colorway drop of Durant’s eighth signature shoe.  The storyline goes deeper than color; the car — one of the six-time All-Star’s biggest initial investments — continually reminds Durant that an unrelenting commitment to hard work pays off.

The KD8 V8 is built with innovation for all ages. From toddler to adult, the collective design team obsessed adapting the shoe’s light, tight and progressive design for all ages beginning with a crib bootie on up to Durant’s custom-built size 17.5.
