Truly one of the most adoring, simplistic and respectable designs of the KD 7, this iteration is a tribute to Kevin Durant’s beloved Aunt Pearl as suggested, who was an influential role model in his life before passing away from lung cancer in 2001.
Inspired by an angel tattoo evident on Durant’s back as well as the official color of White for lung cancer awareness, as the basis of its design theme, additional hits of Pink provided by the breast cancer symbol on the back heel tab, Flywire support and insoles imprinted with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund consists as bold contrasting shades. Furthermore, Gold Swoosh logos with a wing-pattern detailing provide an elegant touch to its overall makeup. Topped off with a three-dimensional angel wing strap adorning the midfoot and a greyscale angel print applied on the inside of the tongue, a Gold KD logo is situated on the opposite side.
Look for the KD 7 “Aunt Pearl” at Nike retailers tomorrow, February 19 for $170. Additionally, GS sizes (3.5Y – 7Y) will also be available for $115.
