Nike KD 9 Elite

First seen on the feet of Kevin Durant earlier this month, we now get another look at the Nike KD 9 Elite.

At the moment this Nike KD 9 Elite is expected to release in Asia on February 24th. Stay tuned for information on a stateside release.

As far as the sole unit goes, Nike decided to keep the same one we see on the original KD 9. This colorway comes in dark grey on the entire upper with a metallic silver Swoosh and a red air sole unit.

 

This new version of the KD 9 features a new one-piece stretch collar that replaces the Flyknit that is usually seen on the ankle. Another big difference is the much thicker and much more visible Flywire cables that run down the side panels that provide a lock-down fit.
