Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Aunt Pearl’
We often forget that MVP-frontrunner and possible 2012 Scoring Champ (Three-peating in that award, should he come out atop the heap by this Friday) is just a 23-year-old kid. He’s remained so humble and focused because of how grounded his family keeps him, and it’s clear that the female authority figures have had as much of a profound effect on him as his coaches and mentors have. We already saw a special PE KD IV made for his mother Wanda, but today we get a look at another PE of sorts made for Aunt Pearl; it features a tonal pink profile with a translucent pink outsole and a black swoosh on a strap, but what makes it a visual masterpiece is the pearloid panel on the heel – an obvious play on his grand-aunt’s name. An overseas release for these has been reported, but we’ll keep you updated on the U.S. release. Photo: torres9 on ISS
I have a ton of respect for KD, not only for designing a kick ass shoe and constantly dropping stellar colorways. But making it affordable its great for us kids who don't come from much money
If the back of the shoe was just a pearl color and not a whole bunch of pearls they would look SO much better!
i aint got no kd's yet... but i dont mind my first pair being pink... judge me all you want.. im feelin it.
KDIV's are KICKING ASSES THIS YEAR!!!! Of course I'll cop! This is much better than the Kobe VI Kayows!...EASY!!!
DAMN.... those are ugly! Nike are coming up with some stupid color ways nowadays... jeez. I can probably see a girl rockin these. I better not see any dudes rockin these on the court.
Derrick rose's had a cw on the 2.5 that was dedicated to his mother and named after her too, Brenda. Im sure there were some athletes that dedicated their fam w/ sneakers, i guess we're just overlooking a bit.
Let's not...KD is too real. If he doesn't win the MVP he will hopefully win the title. Bu this is all unrelated. Nice creative shoes...although I would probably never wear them.
nope.....he meant KOBE 6 "KAY YOW" with an "S" which is the kobe 6 pink CW....be careful with what you say bro...
