Every year, Kevin Durant and Nike Basketball team up to pay tribute to the fight against Breast Cancer inspired by KD’s late Aunt Pearl. She was an influential figure in Kevin Durant’s life growing up and her fight against the illness inspired Durant to create more awareness through raising funds for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. This year, the KD 9 will feature familiar shades of Kay Yow’s Hot Punch pink shade as an accent color with special embroidery on the Swoosh and heel to commemorate the release. Today we get word that the Nike KD 9 Aunt Pearl will be available next weekend on January 28th, 2017 for $150 USD.
The Nike KD 9 has been featured in a number of Warriors-centric colorways to pay tribute to KD’s recent move to the Golden State Warriors, but the most popular looks have often been defined by their off-court wearability. With the Nike KD 9 “Aunt Pearl”, you get just that thanks to a simple black upper adding synthetic suede into the mix while a high-contrast Hot Punch sees additional embroidery on the Swoosh branding to match floral inspirations on the ‘KD’ branded heel.
Check out more detailed shots of the coming KD 9 Aunt Pearl below and grab your pair on 1/28. Stay tuned for more Release Date updates right here on Sneaker News.
