Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant shared a photo via Instagram showing-off his highly anticipated Nike KD VI ‘Aunt Pearl’ sneakers, prior to debuting them on the court that night versus the LA Lakers. This floral print beauty is a tribute to KD’s late Aunt who passed away from lung cancer in 2000. The floral motif was inspired by Aunt Pearl’s favorite robe which shared a similar pattern. To raise women’s cancer awareness, proceeds from this shoe will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The Nike KD VI ‘Aunt Pearl’ will officially drop February 27th.
KD strolled into the Staples Center wearing the Nike KD VI ‘Aunt Pearl’ sneakers with a shawl collar sweater, and eccentric polka dot Vice sweatpants.
