Nike Basketball Officially Unveils The KD 11

Following his back-to-back NBA Championship, Nike Basketball has officially unveiled Kevin Durant’s next signature shoe, the Nike KD 11. The shoe is described as California casual. Or simply acknowledge it as the ultimate merger of laid-back chill shoe and performance basketball equipment.

KD prefers comfort, with a shoe that feels somewhere between “a sock and a lightweight runner,” which is why Nike made the KD 11 is his most comfortable shoe to-date.

Nike KD 11 Sketch

The shoe itself has a rubber cup sole that houses the Nike React and Nike Zoom. The former cushions between court and body, while the latter sits just under the foot to provide response. A key component in the resulting system was identifying the correct thickness for the foam element, which Chang notes is taller than in typical basketball shoes.

On the KD 11, the third consecutive KD signature to feature Nike’s most adaptable textile technology, the Flyknit gets a little more plush, a little more “broken-in” and a thus a lot softer.

“He likes the feel of the Flyknit Trainer and the Nike Epic React,” says Chang. “Last summer, he loved the Air Sock Racer — that is where the collar of the 11 came from, and all the lofting in the tongue and quarter followed.”

Look for the Nike KD 11 “Paranoid “ to release on June 18th and the “Still KD” in July at select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com.
