Kevin Durant’s story is properly presented through his sneakers thanks to Nike. One to be remembered is this this “Aunt Pearl” edition of his KD8 as a tribute to his late aunt who passed away from lung cancer in 2000 from lung cancer. This floral colorway also raises funds and awareness for cancer patients.
Already seen on most Nike KD models, the “Aunt Pearl” finally makes its way to the 8s this month. We get a sneak peek at the shoe thanks to Mo_schino. Sporting a white, blue, purple, pink, and red floral colorway, inspired by a similarly patterned robe that Durant’s aunt used to wear. Though the inspiration is from one of despair, its great to see this colorway become so popular and raise funds and awareness for the root of its devastating illness.
