Thanksgiving week marked the Nike release 2015 of two different Nike KD 8 colorways, namely the “Opening Night” and the “PG County” iterations. For a while Nike did not make any announcements regarding future colorways, but then they unveiled this year’s Christmas version of the sneaker and soon after, photos of a new all-black rendition also surfaced. While the Nike KD 8 “Blackout” already arrived at retailers on December 16th, now an EXT variation has also been introduced and is also on its way to retail shelves. Of course, its build resembles that of the recent KD 8 EXT “Weave.”
Nike introduced the EXT form as a lifestyle and premium version of Kevin Durant’s latest, eighth traditional basketball signature model. The debuting “Weave” iteration of the KD 8 EXT edition was dubbed correctly since this variation of the silhouette consists of an intricately woven upper, including the tongue. The woven upper of the “Weave” iteration is entirely dressed up in ominous Black, which also covers the flywire, laces and midsole unit, granting quite a sleek appearance to the sneaker. In addition, the heel portion features interlocking material, while subtle traces of red can be spotted on the lower area. Rounding out the look is the Gum outsole that rests beneath.
This new upcoming colorway of the KD 8’s EXT variation is not so different as far as the construction of the silhouette is concerned. However, instead of Black, it sports what looks like a crisp All-White woven upper with flywire. However, the hue cover the sneaker’s upper is actually Sail. Moreover, the flywire, laces and Nike Swoosh logos are covered in Biege, while the tongue features a Metallic Silver-colored KD logo. Much like the KD 8’s debut version, this colorway is also equipped with a Gum outsole too. Now that December 21st has arrived, the Nike release 2015 of this premium KD 8 EXT iteration has also taken place, which means sneakerheads can now cop it for $200 from select Nike accounts.
