Black + Gold = ‘Elite’.
There is no questioning that the Nike KD 8 is a polarizing model. With its high cut, the KD 8 Elite can be an indimitating to any consumer but its not all for show. The exaggerated sleeve actually serves a purpose to the performance of the silhouette by adding compression and extra support.
As for the colorway seen here, it really doesn’t get and any cleaner. Black and gold screams ‘Elite’ and the white midsole makes everything stand out for an overall clean look that we should see KD rock himself in the 2016 post season.
The Nike KD 8 Elite ‘Black/Gold’ is rumored for a May 28th release date on Nike.com and Nike Basketball accounts.
