The Nike KD 8 Elite has been full of surprises, from the initial shock of its tall height to the strange inclusion of a snakeskin texture on this pair.

Nike's usually reserved animal prints on Kevin Durant's line for EXT models intended for off-court wear, so the inclusion of the reptile pattern here feels out of place. Still, that's not actual snakeskin, so it's not like anything is being sacrificed performance-wise on the materials.

The sneaker release date on this Nike KD 8 Elite is set for May 5.
