One of Nike’s heavy hitters for the year – the Nike KD 8. I was unimpressed with the cushion, but the traction and materials are top notch. Some minor issues come about if someone steps on the exaggerated heel, but other than that there isn’t much to complain about. They pretty much have everything that most players would want. Full length cushion, great traction, great materials that require minimal break-in, and lockdown fit. Only thing we can complain about is the $180 price tag. Yeah…ouch.
