This will be the 5th edition of the Aunt Pearl themed Kevin Durant Signature sneaker.
The sneaker was inspired by Kevin Durant’s Aunt Pearl who passed back in 2000 to Lung Cancer. KD had a very close relationship with his Aunt Pearl who served as an inspiration to him. Aunt Pearl had a unique ability to reach the sometimes shy Durant as a kid. “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.
The Nike Zoom KD9 Aunt Pearl will release via the SNKRS App on January 28th. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
