KD 7 'Aunt Pearl' 2015

By Quinn L.V. McDonald

The KD7 Aunt Pearl are slated for February 19th release. As always, this cancer awareness edition of the KDs are in remembrance of Kevin Durant’s late Aunt Pearl, who passed away from lung cancer in 2000. Previous generations of this particular colorway have been heavy on pink and floral patterns, but this year the KDs take a new approach.

The 2015 Aunt Pearls come with way less pinks than ever before. The upper is all-white including the Hyperposite that wraps around the heel and the midsole. In a Jeremy Scott-inspired design flourish, the mid-strap resembles that of an angel’s wing. The outsole and inner lining are pure platinum, while both the Nike and KD logo are in flashy metallic gold. If you love pink they didn't completely forget about you; the pink pow colored flywire make these kicks vibrant and unmistakable.

The KD7 “Aunt Pearl” will go for $170. More pics below.
