Ahead of the Golden State Warriors taking the floor tonight to square off with the Houston Rockets for Game 1 of the 2018 Western Conference Finals, here is a first look at Kevin Durant's latest signature model, the KD 11, from a tweet that's since been deleted by Nike senior director of global communications Heidi Burgett.
Like recent installments of the superstar's signature line, the KD 11 will feature a Flyknit upper, mid-cut design, and sock-like collar. A leather overlay reinforces the heel and sports KD's logo. Nike's Swoosh branding appears on another overlay near the lateral toe.
From a performance perspective, the KD 11 features full-length Zoom Air embedded in Nike's React foam cushioning. React was first unveiled on the Hyperdunk 2017, but has been more commonly associated with the brand's Epic React Flyknit running model since its debut.
The reveal also gives a look at two upcoming colorways. One sports a black and grey color scheme, while the other plays more to the colors of KD's Warriors squad with a blue upper and yellow hits.
Although nothing is confirmed, signs points to Durant debuting his new signature model soon as the Warriors make their push towards another NBA Finals appearance.
