It’s a busy time for Nike Basketball. With the NBA Finals in full swing and two of their premier athletes—Kevin Durant and LeBron James—front and center in the sporting world’s conscious, the Swoosh is enjoying a lion’s share of the basketball footwear spotlight and they’re keeping the pressure on with the newest signature shoe in the Slim Reaper’s long-running line, the Nike KD 11.
Loosely dubbed the “Warriors” colorway, the new shoe features a one-piece Flyknit upper dressed in a flecked blue/yellow. The shoe’s external heel features a “marksman” graphic, nodding to the Durantula’s propensity for accurate, efficient scoring and a heel tab for easy on/off access. From a cushioning standpoint, the KD line’s usual full Zoom Air is swapped out for a hybrid system featuring a Zoom unit encapsulated by Nike’s new React foam. The shoe’s sleek but tough aesthetic is completed by a translucent outsole that features the same unique detailing found on the shoe’s insole.
No official US release info on this KD 11 is available yet, but it’s certainly not out of the realm of possibility that Nike could do something special through SNKRS during the Finals. Be sure to keep it locked right here for all your news and updates on KD’s latest signature sneakers and other new Nike shoes.
