The Aunt Pearl Are Being Released February 27

February is looking like a great month for dope sneaker releases. On February 27, 2014 the Nike KD 6

“Aunt Pearl” is being released. The “Aunt Pearl” KDs were inspired by his Aunt Pearl who passed away

from lung cancer. Kevin Durant and his Aunt Pearl had an inseparable bond; therefore it was only right

for him to create a sneaker that represents his love for her.

“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,” said Durant.

The KD 6 Aunt Pearl pays tribute to Kevin Durant aunt with a pink floral pattern on the base of the

sneaker and highlights of blue with subtle pearls. The floral pattern on the shoe is very similar to the

pattern on a robe that his Aunt Pearl often wore. This specific color way is getting a lot of social buzz.

The sneaker is retailing at $150. Proceeds from the shoe will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. What are

your thoughts on the Aunt Pearls?
