This month sees the 5th edition of the the Nike KD Aunt Pearl theme, created in honor of Kevin Durant’s Aunt Pearl who passed away in 2001 following a battle with lung cancer. This year’s version utilizes the beautiful lines of the Nike KD 8, overlaying the sneaker with a Vivid Pink base covered with violet flowers. Matching Vivid Pink laces have been applied as well, while the swoosh graphics are blacked out. A white and pink sole provides cushioning and comfort.
The Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl releases in stores on February 22, and will retail for $200. As always, proceeds from the sneaker will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, created in honor of the late basketball coach in 2007.
