• In times of bereavement, a dedication is often offered in many fashions to show your forever loving support and care. Star player of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Durant has experience a recent lose that lead to dedication of fashionable propotions. The Nike KD7 has seen its fair share of refashioning, but no other models warrant the same sentiment to Kevin Durant as the KD7 “Aunt Pearl.” Nike designer Leo Chang articulated Durant’s memory of Aunt Pearl by creating a customized sneaker based on Durant’s tributary artwork. Dressed with an angelic shade of white flowing throughout the low-cut silhouette’s entire build, a hint of pink spruces up the Dynamic Flywire lace eyelets, heel bow, and interior trimmings. Gold adds a halo-like feel to the Swooshes and branding, while a wing-derived aesthetic fashions the midfoot strap. A three-dimensional wing strap, inscribed with a touching acknowledgment to his aunt and an endorsement of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund for whom Nike has been a supporter of for seven years, graces the front of the shoe while an imprint of Durant’s tattoo is embedded on the inside of the tongue.
The KD7 “Aunt Pearl” shoe will be available beginning February 19 at Nike.com and select retail locations globally.
