Volt accents along with a vibrant Pink React midsole complete the look as well as the signature Peach Jam logo near the heels.

Dressed in a vibrant color scheme, the Nike KD 11 utilizes a recurring embroidered peach logo that is designed to honor the annual Peach Jam basketball tournament in Georgia. Hot Punch acts as the catalyst for this sneaker’s colorway, while Lime Blast and Pure Platinum provide supporting details that lend to a color scheme that is perfect for the middle of the Summer. The semi-translucency of the KD 11’s react cushioning sole unit acts as a window to another Hot Punch element to match the look of the rest of the sneaker.

The Nike KD 11 Still KD is debuting this month, and it’s one of the first colorways of Kevin Durant’s brand new 11th signature sneaker. 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.
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.

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”.
