The latest Nike KD 7 “Aunt Pearl” pays tribute to Kevin Durant’s late Aunt Pearl who passed away from lung cancer in 2000. To keep her memories and spirit alive, Nike Basketball and KD continue to release special edition Nike KD series inspired by Aunt Pearl.
Nike KD 7 Aunt Pearl – Colorway Details
The angelic inspiration for the shoe comes from from the angel tattoo that KD got on his back in memory of his aunt.
This Nike KD 7 is dressed in a mixture of White, Metallic Gold, Pink Pow and Pure Platinum color scheme. Featuring an all-Whtie Hyperposite base with Metallic Gold detailing on the KD logo on the tongue as well as the Nike Swoosh on the tongue. Pink Pow accents are seen on the Flywire cables and it looks to appear on the insole. The shoe sits atop a Pure Platinum outsole to finish off the look. But the main detail of the shoe is the unique designed angel wing strap is the first three-dimensional, sculpted strap by Nike Basketball, which has a special memorable wording for KD’s late Aunt Pearl. Also, the inside of the strap carries a message for Aunt Pearl and all those who fight to find a cure. And graphic floral designed inner tongue and a Kay Yow Cancer Fund logo on the back heel.
