Kevin Durant didn’t get much on-court use of his current signature sneaker model from Nike thanks to a season that was unfortunately derailed by injuries.

Here’s hoping the KD8, which Durant himself has been teasing the unveil of through his social media channels, gets a lot more on-court action from the man himself.

It’s not just the ink on my body…attacking is in my DNA. #KD8

At first glance, the shoe appears to have a lower silhouette than the previous model, and a change in the forefoot cushioning -- perhaps in response to the Jones fracture Durant suffered early in the season.

We’ll have the full details of the KD8 as soon as they’re officially revealed, which likely can’t be too far off given Durant’s recent willingness to distribute the information.
