Nike KD 11 “Paranoid”

Nike has just released another colorway of the all-new Nike KD 11 after dropping the EYBL/Peach Jam pair last week. Now they have given us the all-blue pair that is being dubbed the Paranoid colorway.

After winning back-to-back NBA championships and Finals MVP trophies, Kevin Durant’s Summer is looking pretty relaxed right now. However, there’s also the matter of his free agency, although it is highly unlikely that KD will go anywhere else considering Warriors GM Bob Myers has openly stated that he’d give Durant “whatever he wants” to stay in the Bay. While that mini-drama plays itself out, Durant’s fans have his new shoes – the KD 11 – to look forward to, and it looks like the “Paranoid” colorway just dropped overseas. A U.S. release date for this blue/volt pair still eludes us , but grab them now on Nike Europe.

While some may take a break when they reach the top, KD now works harder than ever knowing that everyone is after his spot. Fueled by the paranoia of losing what he’s worked to attain, he obsesses over his game, continually pushing past his own pinnacle. The Nike KD 11 Paranoid honors his maniacal mindset for winning and the use of what he calls “appropriate fear” to prevent him from ever settling. The shoe features a light blue Flyknit upper with royal blue overlays and white branding. A semi translucent midsole with full-length Nike Zoom Air cushioning lodged inside responsive Nike React foam.

The KD 11 rides atop a rubber cupsole to contain its React and full-length Zoom Air setup. Nightwing2303 and Stanley T. both say the shoe rides high (and both were not fans of the shoe, although the cushion is money).

KD 11 “Oreo”

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.

 

Earlier this week Nike shared a first look at the KD 11. Today a second colorway has already emerged in black and grey. Kevin Durant‘s favored Zoom Air cushioning makes its way back into the fold as Nike’s REACT foam joins in on the fun, marking the first time it’s been incorporated into KD’s signature line. The Flyknit upper consist of black and dark grey weaving that gives it a charcoal look while branding is kept to a minimum with KD’s logo subtly placed on the heel counter and Nike’s Swoosh logo found on the lateral side of the toebox. The aforementioned sole unit receives a translucent touch to complete the colorway.

 

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.

 

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.

 

“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”.

KD 11 “EYBL”

After the Nike KD 11 “EYBL” leaked overseas last month, we awaited a Stateside release in July. Now, the release date is official.

 

While the KD 11 “Still KD” still hasn’t released in the United States — you’ll have to wait until July 18 — Nike SNKRS is giving KD fans a limited release of an interesting multicolor build. Designed to celebrate Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League, this KD 11 “EYBL” features the Peach Jam logo embroidered at the heel panel in lime green. While Kevin Durant didn’t wear his new shoe in the 2018 NBA Finals, he has been wearing it on his summer China tour.

 

The KD 11 rides atop a rubber cupsole to contain its React and full-length Zoom Air setup. Nightwing2303 and Stanley T. both say the shoe rides high, but we’ll have more detailed information when the performance reviews are finished. You can learn more by checking out the Nike KD 11 deconstructed.

Nike KD 11 Performance Review

In July 4, 2016, Kevin Durant joined the Golden State warriors. In June 13, 2017, the warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers by 4-1 points and won the NBA championship in the 2016-17 season. Kevin Durant won the first crown and won FMVP. In April 2018, he won the world’s most influential honor in the Time magazine in 2018. In June 9, 2018, Kevin Durant won the NBA championship again with the warriors and won the 2017-2018 season finals MVP. The 2017-18 season won the annual community contribution award.

It’s good to be Kevin Durant. The newly-minted NBA champion and Finals MVP was a key contributor in his team’s 4-0 sweep of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. His classic Nike KD4 released in the “Thunderstruck” colorway after Game 3, in which the Durantula put up an all-world 43-13-7 stat line. He was named Finals MVP. And now his new Nike KD 11 silhouette has now been officially unveiled.

Durant wanted a shoe that felt broken-in right out of the box, so head designer Leo Chang concocted a performance silhouette featuring a rubber cup sole that boasts a combination of Nike’s React and Zoom cushioning technologies, offering excellent responsiveness without sacrificing even a speck of comfort. The shoe’s Flyknit upper was constructed with a softer knit and a different collar than the two previous models, design tweaks that were inspired by last summer’s Nike Air Sock Racer-a shoe that Durant expressed his admiration for to Chang. The end result of the two’s collaborative process? A shoe that boasts the light-weight comfortable feel of a premium runner, while still offering all the rugged performance a player the caliber of the Slim Reaper needs to stay on top of his game.

The Nike KD 11 Still KD is one of the first colorways of Kevin Durant’s brand new 11th signature sneaker debuting this summer. The silhouette’s updated Flyknit upper and sock-like ankle collar features a mixture of white, black and grey hues for a Cookies & Cream-like theme. Other details include a reinforcing heel with branding, matching laces, a full-length Zoom Air cushioning and translucent React foam outsole to complete the design altogether.

One of our most anticipated basketball shoes of 2018 is nearly upon us so we’ve gotten up close and personal with the Nike KD 11 ‘Still KD’.Nike officially unveiled the KD 11 ‘Still KD’ earlier today, and the brand had us at full-length Zoom Air and a React foam midsole. The combination alone is intriguing enough to make the shoe easily top our most anticipated sneaker of the year list.
While we don’t know how the KD 11 will perform, we’re very excited to see how it feels on-foot. With the KD 10 being a letdown compared to the the KD 9, the KD 11 looks and sounds promising. Getting up close with the materials only furthers our excitement as the June 18 release can’t come soon enough (although it is the blue ‘Paranoid’ colorway releasing that day, according to Nike). Pricing has yet to be announced so we’re all hoping that the $150 price point of KD’s last two models won’t see an increase.
