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.

Look for both the “Still KD” and “Paranoid” colorways of the KD 11 to drop this June/July on Nike.com, and check out our Sneaker Release Dates page for further updates and info.
