The History Of The Nike KD 11

The KD 11 was released in 2018. It was designed by Leo Chang. Kevin Durant would wear the 11 during his final season with the Golden State Warriors.

The KD 11 features a high top design, a combo of Flyknit and suede materials. They offered a supportive and flexible fit. The Zoom Air cushioning presented a responsive performance. REACT foam cushioning was also a part of the 11. Durant’s final trip to the Finals with the Warriors ended with KD suffering an Achilles injury. The KD 11 marked the end of an era for KD, but the shoe has remained a popular installment in the KD series.

In 2016, Durant made the biggest decision of his career. When KD decided to join the Golden State Warriors in the summer of 2016 the sports world went mad. Many were excited to see the all-star join the powerhouse team. Many others were critical of the decision. The Warriors already won a title before KD joined, and the Golden State squad that he joined, just eliminated KD and his OKC team from the playoffs just a few months prior.

Despite the criticism, KD’s time in Golden State was stellar. He would lead the Golden State Warriors to back-to-back championships in 2017 and 2018. He also won Finals MVP in both Championship runs. KD only spent three seasons in Golden State, but those three seasons are arguably the best of his career.

Moving On

KD would next join the Brooklyn Nets. Despite having a strong roster around him, KD was not able to achieve playoff success with Brooklyn. He would play for Brooklyn from 2019-2023. In 2023, KD would be traded to the Phoenix Suns. The Suns have been close to winning a championship the last few seasons. It is believed by many in the basketball world that Durant is the missing piece for the Suns. Can KD lead the Phoenix Suns to a championship and earn himself a third ring?
