The Nike KD8 series has done an excellent job of storytelling thru colorways, with most focusing on where Kevin Durant grew up and what motivated him to become great. The latest colorway is no different but focuses more on the people who inspired him than the places. The Nike KD8,"Vinary" takes inspiration from two of Durant's basketball heroes, Vince Carter and Larry Bird.

This colorway uses Vince Carter's Toronto Raptors purple and red with Larry Bird's Boston Celtics Green for an unlikely combination that works nicely on the KD8 silhouette. We probably won't see KD play in these but don't be surprised to see Vince Carter or Larry bird wearing them around.
