Nike KD 7 PRM - Aunt Pearl

Nike officially unveils the Nike KD 7 PRM “Aunt Pearl,” perhaps the most anticipated iteration of the KD 7 to release this year. As the title suggests, this latest rendition is a homage to Kevin Durant’s beloved Aunt Pearl, who was influential in molding his character, moral, etc since her passing from lung cancer in 2001. Nike designer, Leo Chang was appointed for this touching project by taking inspiration into an angel tattoo evident on Durant’s back in his efforts to keep her memory alive. The symbolism of an angel itself led to the silhouette’s pristine makeup, while also being the official color of lung cancer awareness, as White dominates its mesh and Hyperposite upper. Additionally detailed by a Pink breast cancer symbol stitched onto the back heel tab, in addition to Pink Flywire support and insoles imprinted with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund – a charitable organization committed to the fight against women’s cancers through raising money, assisting the underserved and unifying people to raise awareness – Gold Swoosh logos with wing-pattern detailing provide an elegant, yet luxurious touch to its overall design. Finishing notable details include a three-dimensional angel wing strap adoring the midfoot, with a tributary message to his Aunt Pearl on its backside, while a greyscale print of the actual angel tattoo from Kevin Durant’s back is applied on the inside of the tongue, as a Gold KD logo is placed on the outside. The KD 7 “Aunt Pearl” is scheduled to arrive at select Nike retailers on February 19 for $170, alongside a range of coordinating apparel.
