The latest colorway of the Nike KD 10 to leak pays tribute to Kevin Durant’s late Aunt Pearl.
The KD Aunt Pearl 10 features the popular millennial pink in three different shades. You will see a soft pink Flyknit across the upper. Pink velvet on the heel and as an accent for the overlays on the medial toe and tongue tag. A cream contrast is found on the stitched Swoosh and outsole.
The one detail that is consistent on every Aunt Pearl sneaker is the red ribbon which is on the inside of the tongue tag and a textured heel that resembles angel wings.
If you are not familiar with the Aunt Pearl Collection, it is in memory of KD’s late Aunt Pearl who passed away from lung cancer in 2000.
“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,” Durant said.
This personally is my favorite sneaker of all time not just for the color, but the meaning that it holds to those who live with breast cancer of having lost their lives to it.
You can cop this sneaker on February 28th for only $150. Take a look at the shoe below and let us know what you think!
