Nike KD 11 'Academy'

Nike Basketball's invite-only The Academy camp is going down in Los Angeles through the weekend, and the star-studded event is already delivering a handful of sneakers themed around the event.

One highlight has been the KD 11 "The Academy," which was first spotted on the feet of producer 9th Wonder and later shared on Instagram by Kevin Durant himself.

Adding to the vibrant shades of the upcoming "Multicolor" KD 11 and the recently released "Peach Jam" colorway, this "The Academy" colorway dons a bright orange upper with black and teal hits and a translucent sole which houses the sneaker's React and Zoom Air cushioning. Adding an extra bit of flair, this pair also features emoji-like silhouettes on the medial heel, a reoccurring detail on this year's "The Academy" sneakers.

Unlike the aforementioned "Multicolor" pair, one thing this "The Academy" KD 11 does not have is a confirmed release date. Check back soon to find out if these will be hitting stores.
