For years now, Kevin Durant has upheld the legacy of his late Aunt Pearl, crafting many a colorway in her honor. The Nike KD 14 maintains tradition, donning pink as yet another heartfelt reminder of the fight against cancer.
Similar to past offerings, the pair visually interprets the ribbon associated with breast cancer. And though likely unintentional, the silhouette’s upper mimics what the symbol would look like in motion. Light shades of the color are spread throughout, dynamically warping over top a slightly darker base. And the latter, though mostly obscured here, is magnified atop the vamp and midsole, the latter of which quickly gradates to a more desaturated finish. Elsewhere, gum bottoms outfit the tread, “Aunt Pearl” and “KD” markings are cast in gold, and the heel proffers a texture reminiscent of wings.
Closing remarks, then, dress across the inside tongue, stating “In memory of Aunt Pearl, who inspired us all to continue the fight for a cure.” With proceeds sure to help fund cancer research, the Nike KD 14 “Aunt Pearl” will be releasing next year. Sit tight for updates on its release date.
