Kevin Durant first laced up his navy-based Nike KD 8 Elite sneakers against Boston on Wednesday. After another run in the pair against the Philadelphia 76ers last night, we now have a better look.

A simple take on the advanced model finds the dark blue hue doing most of the work, while Photo Blue and white subtly chime in on the branding points. Of course, the most prominent feature is a built-in compression sock, which Durant's designer Leo Chang says may extend to the knee during the playoffs.

Whether or not the navy colorway is planned for retail is unknown, but the white colorway will kick off a series of at least three styles on Apr. 14.
