Nike KD 14 Aunt Pearl DC9379-600 Release Date

In 2012, Kevin Durant and his Nike The team designed a special Nike KD 4 colorway to honor his Aunt Pearl – who sadly passed away in 2000 in a battle with lung cancer. Since then, the Swoosh’s basketball division has continued that tradition on each of the Brooklyn Nets All-Star’s signature sneakers, and now it has officially unveiled the Nike KD 14 “Aunt Pearl.”

The kicks are full of intricate patterns, materials and details. The base layers are designed with a soft pink knit material and are equipped with allover swirl patterns. Dusted pink accents also make their presence felt here on the tongues and laces, the former of which splits its gold branding between “KD” on the right shoe and “”Aunt Pearl” on the left. The heel counters have been sculpted with wing-like shapes – a detail we’ve seen before on the KD 12 and KD 7 “Aunt Pearl” makeups. Inside the shoes, the inner layer of the tongues and insoles reads “In Memory of Aunt Pearl, Who Inspired Us All To Continue To Fight For Cure” and comes with Kay Yow branding.

The midsoles bring more playful elements as they come equipped with two shades of pink and speckled patterns, and the outsoles are treated with gum skin. Those interested in adding these to their hoop collection can find them dropping in 2022 for $160 USD.

In case you missed it, Mr. Williams’ Nike yoga collection just dropped.
