The Nike Zoom KD IV has proven to be Kevin Durant’s breakout signature, so it’s fitting that this year’s model featured more of the 23-year old, soon-to-be three-time scoring champ’s personal life on display than each of its predecessors. The Zoom KD IV has given us colorways like the ‘Weatherman’ inspired by Durant’s childhood ambitions, the outstanding ‘Nerf’ package in reflection of the Durantula’s playful attitude and even a PE for his mother. The latest revelation stays in the family, blending the ‘Think Pink’ WBCA initiative with a tribute to KD’s late Aunt Pearl who passed when Kevin was only eleven. Their pearly heel panel is as eye-catching and unique as this memorial is heartfelt and filled with hope, and you can see some new details including the midfoot strap’s hidden message after the jump below.

I LOOOOVE these! Colorway plus it has great story and meaning behind it! Even adds to the reason i love KD, he's humble and never forgets where he came from!
I'd buy these. I like the design plus i had someone close to me taken away by breast cancer. Awesome concept
Lmaooo How can you say their only for ladies when Nike dnt even release any think pinks in GS sizes? i like but I dnt, shade of pink is weird. These couldve been really nice with different color blocking
WTF are those freakin' hairy legs something to do with breast cancer?!!! Damn YETI or BIG FOOT even love KD's now. Sorry Kobe / Lebron, it's KD's year definitely. Who is next KD hugger?...the UFO's?...Area 51 aliens???
