Yes, the Nike KD 9 is just around the corner, with its release date set for June 20. But, it looks like there's still more out there for Kevin Durant's current signature model, the KD 8.

Hitting social media early on Wednesday for the first time is this upcoming pair, which has a particularly interesting shiny Swoosh treatment. What's the story behind the Swoosh? The one account that posted the pair, Australian sneaker shop Kickz101, called them the "Uptempo" KD 8s, so it's possible that detail refers to the metallic bump on the back of the Air Total Max Uptempo.

There is no U.S. sneaker release date information yet for this Nike KD creation. That being said, Kickz101 looks to be releasing them tomorrow, so their arrival in North America can't be too far out.
