Apparently Kevin Durant and Nike wanted to give sneakerheads something to be thankful about this Thanksgiving Day. This has resulted in the unexpected Nike release 2015 of a brand new KD 8 Lifestyle iteration. While the lifestyle version of Kevin Durant’s eighth signature sneaker model is meant to be stylish kicks that sneakerheads can confidently rock on the streets, but there is something special about this particular rendition. While this new Nike KD 8 Lifestyle colorway looks dope, it will stand out even more in the dark, considering that it has been dubbed “Green Glow.”
While Nike may have their hopes quite high with the KD 8 Lifestyle, but sneakerheads did not pay as much attention to the sneaker as they expected and the sneaker has not become very popular. Perhaps the only redeeming thing about the Nike KD 8 Lifestyle is the fact that it is an easy to wear sneaker. For sneakerheads who have not yet realized it, the characteristics of the Nike KD 8 Lifestyle certainly appear to have been borrowed from or resemble those of the Nike Air Force 1 and the Nike Dunk. Nonetheless, earlier this month, the Nike KD 8 EXT variant hit the shelves not so long ago featuring woven construction.
The upper of the Nike KD 8 Lifestyle “Green Glow” sports a gradient effect since it is dressed up in a blending combination of Black and Metallic Silver. The eyelets, heel tab, inner lining, laces and the midsole are basically the portions that are covered in Black. However, as its nickname suggests, the highlight of this sneaker are the insole and outsole that are covered in the Green Glow material. Once the lights go out, this sneaker will actually glow in the dark. The Nike release 2015 of this KD 8 Lifestyle “Green Glow” already took place on Thanksgiving Day and it should still be up for grabs for $140.
