An official look at the upcoming Nike KD 9 Elite is here — whether you like it or not.
Much like “Elite” models of the past, not much has changed. The tooling remains the same, so you’ll receive a very similar experience if you’re one of the few that decides to grab these once they hit retail.
What has changed is the upper; thicker Flyknit makes up most of the upper and it looks as if most of the fuse welded seams have been removed. This will likely result in a more comfortable upper that won’t require breaking in. The rear section of the shoe features a compression collar similar to that of the KD 8 Elite.
While the official images of the upcoming Elite model have leaked online, pricing and a release date have not. However, the release is likely coming very soon as they’ve already been made available overseas. Moreover, official images popping up online usually means the product’s landing page is being worked on in order for it to go live.
Share your thoughts on the Nike KD 9 Elite and stay tuned for additional information as it comes.
