Nike continues to roll out their 2017 basketball silhouettes and the latest sneaker to be unveiled by the Swoosh is the KD9 Aunt Pearl iteration. With focus on Breast Cancer Awareness, this newest pair of kicks continues the Aunt Pearl series, signature to KD’s sneaker line with Nike.
Created in honor of Kevin Durant’s late relative, who passed away due to cancer, the Aunt Pearl continues to pay homage to those fighting against cancer. Dressed in the signature colorways used for Breast Cancer Awareness month, Nike continues the tradition of black and pink, and dresses this silhouette entirely in those two primary colorways. With the upper featuring a suede and knitted makeup, the shoe features hits of pink on the toe front, Zoom Air Unit and Swoosh branding. Embroidered with the Breast Cancer Awareness logo on the side heel portion of the shoe, the sneaker is rounded out by a black outsole, giving the KD shoes a clean and appealing look.
Releasing this Saturday, Jan. 28, at Nike Basketball retailers and accounts, the proceeds of this Nike KD9 Aunt Pearl edition will be donated to for a good cause towards the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Look for these kicks to retail for suggested price of $150.
