It's no secret that the Nike KD 8, or any given sneaker, probably went through plenty of iterations before a final design was settled on.

These images actually give an idea of the steps that the shoe went through on its way to a retail release. There are a couple shots showing off how the Flyweave was built up as well as what the sneaker looks like before it's all put together.

While Nike hasn't shown off too many KD 8 colorways yet, there is already some info out there on what's up next. There will be an eggplant colorway referencing Durant's blazer from his tear-jerking MVP speech, as well as two colorways that represent the grueling hill he ran up for training in his youth.

Sole Collector will have sneaker release date information for all upcoming Nike KD 8s.
