Nike released the KD 8 a few months ago, and I couldn't have been more uninterested. I find these sneakers to be one of the biggest design flops of the past year. In my opinion the shoes are a complete rip-off of every Nike running shoe on the market right now. It's got the sleek design and the Flywire on the upper making it look way more like a running shoe, than a basketball shoe. In my opinion the KD 7s were the best KD since the 4. The 5s, 6s, and now 8s are pretty ugly if you ask me. I own 3 pairs of KD 7s, so you know I liked them. However, I might not even buy a pair of these unless they come out with some sick colorway. I mean I like the Hulk, but put his ugly colors on an even uglier shoe, and I am just not impressed. For me these are a hard pass, especially since these are literally DOUBLE the price of what the KD 4s sold for a mere 4 years ago. I just hope word of this gets back to Kevin himself so that next year's shoes are a lot better than these. Now, if you don't agree with me and you like these sneakers, they will definitely be in retailers after Friday so do not feel rushed to get them Friday morning. Just check your closest Foot Locker or Champs whenever you have the time. Like always, happy hunting.
