The latest basketball kicks from Nike's 'What The'collection are some of the flashiest yet. The eye-popping LEBRON 11 'What The Lebron' and KD VI 'What the KD' signature shoes celebrate two of basketball's most recognizable stars, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

The LEBRON 11 'What the LeBron' shoe remixes eight design elements from all the past LeBron signature shoes as well as 20 additional graphics and colors from various previous editions.

The KD VI 'What the KD' fuses 35 graphics and colors from past KD VI shoes. These shoes feature design elements that draw from Durant's personal stories, including a floral graphic of his late aunt.

Both shoes will be released globally on May 31 and June 7 respectively, along with matching t-shirts.
