The NBA’s global expansion has resulted in a large contingent of fans all across the globe. One of the more rabid fan bases is in China. In recent years, to honor that base and their heritage, the NBA with special edition jerseys. The celebratory uniforms have been rocked on court by the likes of the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors (both teams have large Chinese populations). Warriors star Kevin Durant and Nike are set to get in on the homage with this latest drop of Nike Zoom KD11. Paying respect to the 12-year cycle of Chinese astrology the heel of the shoe features numerous animals along with an embroidered ‘KD’ logo. The Flyknit upper for the shoe comes dressed in collegiate navy and university gold. Speckled laces and a translucent sole complete this commemorative effort. With this years ‘City Edition’ jerseys yet to be unveiled, it makes you wonder if this might be a precursor for what you can expect from the Warriors new jersey. Either way we’re sure you’ll see Durant in this colorway soon, as the reigning Finals MVP has been rocking mismatch shoes in road games this year.
