Adding to Kevin Durant’s fleet of signature KD 8’s, Nike releases a new colorway: the new “Hunt Hill Sunrise”. This version is a little bit more sentimental as the colorway, and its name, pays homage to a special part of KD’s past.

Hunt Hill, a place near his grandmother’s house and childhood recreation center, is where the sneaker gained its name. Durant says as a child he would take to the steep Hunt’s Hill in order to build mental toughness and stamina.

The sneaker features a bight-colored upper with yellow Flywire providing additional bursts of swag. The inspirational sneakers will hit on August 1.

Check out the video below to hear KD speak on his childhood memories of Hunt’s Hill and be sure to SHARE the story.
