The Three Stripes took shots at KD via X (formerly known as Twitter) on two separate occasions.
After Anthony Edwards stated that he wanted to see longtime Nike signature athlete Kevin Durant wear his AE 1, Durant responded that he “[w]on’t EVER see me put a big toe in them Mfers.”
adidas Basketball responded “u dusty bouta retire soon anyways” and followed it up by poking fun of Durant’s Twitter burner fiasco from a few years back.

Even Nike Basketball footwear designer Benjamin Nethongkome, who works on KD’s maxx as well as Ja Morant’s, Devin Booker’s, Sabrina Ionescu’s and the previous Nike Kyrie maxx, chimed in via Instagram stories with a laughing emoji.
The back-and-forth between the Swoosh and the Three Stripes follows an eventful week for both brands after adidas CEO Bjørn Gulden called Nike out at the Footwear News Achievement Awards ceremony to “watch out” as they have more on the way. Jordan Brand Chairman Larry Miller responded a few speeches later to “bring it on.”

The design of the adidas AE 1 marks a new era for the Three Stripes with design language and performance aspects that peel the curtain back for what adidas Basketball has coming up.
And it all starts with Anthony Edwards.
We sat down with Edwards and discussed having his own signature shoe, who he’d like to see jam in it, and more.
Read what Edwards had to say below.

NK: What was it like seeing your signature shoe for the first time?
AE: [The AE 1] was sitting on a table, and I didn’t realize it until later in the meeting. I was smiling from ear to ear. It was a crazy feeling for sure.
