We were supposed to get them, but then we didn’t, and now we are…officially getting the KD VI Aunt Pearls! Before her passing, Kevin Durant was inseparable from his Aunt Pearl. Beginning at a young age, KD loved spending time with his Aunt Pearl who lived just outside of DC. She had a unique ability to reach the sometimes shy KD as a child.
“I made a promise to myself to always honor my Aunt Pearl for the example she set, and the encouragement she gave me to follow my dreams,” said Durant.
The KD VI Aunt Pearl pays tribute to KD’s aunt who passed away from lung cancer in 2000. Composed of a pink floral pattern on the upper and highlights of blue with subtle pearls. The floral motif on the shoes is similar to the pattern on a robe that Aunt Pearl wore.
Not only is this KD VI a tribute to Aunt Pearl, but proceeds go towards the Ky Yow Cancer Fund, whose logo is displayed proudly on the tongue. The purpose isn’t simply to raise money, but to raise awareness of the battle against women’s cancer.
You can purchase the KD VI Aunt Pearls this Saturday 5.24.14 for $150, in-store at 10AM EST and online at 11AM EST pending availability.
