It has the new NIKE REACT cushion technology and is combined with full-length ZOOM Air cushion. The performance of NIKE ZOOM KD11 is improved and excellent. Let’s have a look at the performance of NIKE ZOOM KD11 EP today.

The Front View

The main colorway is blue. The vamp is integrated Flyknit. It has a piece of extra TPU on the shoe head. The Flywire constitutes the shoe lacing system.

The Side View

The crystal outsole is very attracting. It has a piece of TPU reinforcement on the shoe head which has a small swoosh logo. The blue leather on shoe heel is embroidered with KD.

The Rear View

The shoe heel is almost made of a piece of leather. The upturning extending leather constitute the pull-tab which is convenient for putting on and taking off.

Comfort Level

The integrated Flyknit vamp offers excellent flexibility. The air permeability is good.

The vamp uses Primeknit technology which can offer great flexibility to foot.

The unit weight of size US8.5=EUR42 is 436g. I haven’t feel that it’s heavy when exercise.

Fit & Support

The Flyknit vamp with inner sleeve design can cover the forefoot and arch perfectly. The shoe heel is filled with thick foam. The shoes fit the foot very well.

The inner and outer side of vamp has the Flywire design. Both sides of the inner sleeve has been seamed to fix Flywire to improve the lateral support.

The shoe head and outer side has a piece of supporting TPU to increase the fastness and excellent supporting performance. The supporting performance of NIKE ZOOM KD11 EP is excellent.

The shoe heel uses leather material which increase the supporting performance of vamp. When breaking through, the shoe heel doesn’t have obvious deformation. It can make the foot on stable state.

Traction Performance & Abrasive Resistance

The crystal outsole looks great. The full-length arch cyclic annular grains can offer excellent traction performance.

The abrasive resistance of crystal outsole is always not good. The outsole of KD11 is thick. Its abrasive resistance should be not bad.

Cushion Performance

NIKE ZOOM KD11 EP uses React and Zoom Air cushion technology which offers unprecedented cushion performance. It’s soft and elastic when walking.

The thickness of React foam insole is thick enough. The resilience is more obvious when running. I can feel the obvious feedback from insole.

The appearance of NIKE ZOOM KD11 EP is succinct. The inner sleeve design and great material can offer excellent wrapping performance and supporting performance.

The React foam and ZOOM Air cushion of NIKE ZOOM KD11 EP has excellent cushion performance and resilience. It can satisfy the exercising request. Overall, this pair of KD11 has excellent performance. It’s suitable for exercise and daily wearing.
