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!

That's a nice "tribute shoe". What is that KD IV directly behind it?

Honestly I don't like the colorway, but I can appreciate the cause and purpose of the shoe.

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.
