The next colorway for Nike’s KD7 shoe will be the “Aunt Pearl” edition.
The shoe serves as a eulogy to his late aunt who succumbed to lung cancer in 2001, who Kevin Durant paid tribute to with an angel tattoo on his back. Nike used this as inspired for the sneaker’s design, which features a three-dimensional wing strap, inscribed with a tribute to his aunt. It also features an imprint of Durant’s tattoo that is embedded on the inside of the tongue.
The KD7 “Aunt Pearl” drops Feb. 19 at Nike.com and select retail locations globally.
