Team early doesn’t always fiend over performance basketball shoes but you can grab the Nike KD 9 Elite early now over at Afew Store.
Much like past elite models, the tooling remains unchanged from the non-elite version although the full-length visible Zoom Air on that version was one of the comfiest available from Nike Basketball, so the swoosh gets a pass.
The main difference is the bungee-like Flywire system on the sides which should provide more lockdown for when the Flyknit expands. The weight of the shoe looks to be reduced as the course Flyknit in the heel is replaced by a sleeve system, which should make the shoe easier to slip on.
