Nike recently released a video featuring Kevin Durant talking about the inspiration behind the first set of releases for his latest signature sneaker, the KD 8. The 'July 4th' edition has already dropped and the first GR colorway, the 'V8' edition will be arriving later this month. In addition, KD talked about three more colorways, the 'Hunt's Hill (Sunrise),' 'Hunt's Hill (Night)' and 'Suit' editions, and we now have release details on those upcoming models.
Hunt's Hill is a place that KD began working out on at age 11, where he would practice from morning until night. Due to how steep it was, he felt if he could reach the top, he could conquer anything. And the 'Suit' pair pays homage to Durant’s 2013-14 MVP honor, and the outfit he wore during his speech.
The sneaker release date for the 'Hunt's Hill (Sunrise)' is Saturday, July 25, with the 'Suit' pair hitting on Friday, Aug. 14 and the 'Hunt's Hill (Night) releasing on Sunday, Sept. 2. All three colorways will be available at select Nike Basketball retailers worldwide for $180 each.
