Nike’s KD 10 Carries On the “Aunt Pearl” Tradition

Kevin Durant‘s tenth signature model with Nike will carry on KD’s ongoing dedication to his late Aunt Pearl, who passed away due to lung cancer in 2000. The forthcoming launch incorporates Pink Pearl coloring throughout the entire sneaker, unlike the previous black-based edition. Nods to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund return with a pink ribbon found behind the tongue, in addition to a special wings design showcased on each heel, much like the strap on the Nike KD 7 "Aunt Pearl" from 2015.

Retailing for $150 USD, the Nike KD 10 "Aunt Pearl" is expected to drop on February 28 at select Nike Basketball retailers and online. For more, watch Kevin Durant and LeBron James talk pressure, the All-Star Game and President Trump.
