The Nike KD 9 Aunt Pearl is the 6th signature shoe from Kevin Durant to pay tribute to his 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.

“I made a promise to myself to always honor my Aunt Pearl for the example she set, and the encouragement she gave me to follow my dreams,” says Durant.

Proceeds from the shoe will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund that was founded in 2007 and an organization in which Nike is a founding partner.

Dressed in a Black and Pink color scheme. This “Aunt Pearl” edition of the Nike KD 9 features a Black Flyknit upper with Pink underlay, Nike Swoosh logos, insole and Zoom Air cushioning. The insoles read, “Kay Yow Cancer Fund, When Life Kicks You, Let It Kick You Forward. Est. 12.03.2007.” A special graphic surrounding the KD logo on the heel and the traditional Pink ribbon on the heel tab completes the design.
