adidas Basketball Claps Back at Kevin Durant After He Said He Won’t Wear Anthony Edwards’ adidas AE 1

The Three Stripes took shots at KD via X (formerly known as Twitter) on two separate occasions.

UPDATE (12/01):

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.”
