Updated April 5th, 2017: The Nike KD 9 Elite “Pearl Pink” releases on April 5th, 2017 for $150 via nike.com.
Kevin Durant‘s not afraid to wear pink. We’ve seen every signature model from KD and Nike Basketball have a special “Aunt Pearl” colorway honoring Durant’s late Aunt Pearl and her battle breast with cancer including the Nike KD 9 “Aunt Pearl” back in 2016. And while this Nike KD 9 Elite Pink Dust doesn’t have any graphic cues leading us to believe that this is an official Aunt Pearl colorway from the Swoosh, it’s definitely right on par with the aesthetic given the monochromatic light pink upper and simple contrasting grey found on the Swoosh branding and updated lacing system. There’s no word yet on a Release Date, but expect this Nike KD Pink Dust to arrive later this Spring 2017 season.
