The Nike KD 11 Gold Splatter is the next iteration of Kevin Durant’s signature silhouette this season, covered in an official colorway of greyk/multi-color and metallic gold. The flyknit upper is colored mainly in grey with contrasting black overlays on the heel and toe area, followed by highlighting gold splattering all over the upper. Finishing details include KD branding on the heel, and a camouflage-like patterned rubber sole.
Kevin Durant’s departure from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors changed the NBA forever. On top of the fact that the Dubs are heavy favorites to three-peat this upcoming season, Durant is a two-time defending Finals MVP, and has become the centerpiece of a bounty of internet memes due to his “Me Next Chapter” Players Tribune piece. Of course, if the Slim Reaper keeps winning, he won’t care how many different team logos appear on his blank, white sleeveless tee. In honor or Durant and the Bay Area’s last two Larry O’Brien Trophies, the Swoosh has a special version of the KD 11 for number 35 and all his fans set to arrive on shelves two weeks before the season tips off. Outfitted primarily in black and grey, this honorary selection boasts flecked splotches of metallic gold paint splatter throughout its upper with a matching metallic button on the border of its stark heel cup. Underneath, the Swoosh opts for a marbled sole unit with black, white, and grey, while Durant’s signature can be seen in a fitting golden hue on both insoles.
Releasing alongside the “Black Twilight” iteration, Nike will also be releasing a “Gold Splatter” colorway of the KD 11.Dressed in a Multi-Color and Metallic Gold color scheme. This Nike KD 11 features a Grey Flyknit upper with Black overlays. Highlighting the shoe are Gold splatters throughout the entire shoe atop a camouflage-like rubber outsole.
