As with many colorways in Kevin Durant’s ever-expanding signature line, the new “Hunt’s Hill Sunrise” set of the Nike KD8 pays homage to a particular place from the NBA superstar’s past. As a young boy, Durant would take to the steep Hunt’s Hill, located near his grandmother’s house and childhood rec center, in order to build mental toughness and stamina. As a reflection of such resilience, the Swoosh has designed a coinciding colorway that acts as the third release of the KD8. The pair features a bright-colored upper with yellow Flywire tooling providing additional bursts of flavor. Accompanying black laces match the branding, tongue, lining and sole unit, as you can look forward to the KD8 “Hunt’s Hill Sunrise” arriving on Nike.com on August 1.
