A Staple of the Kevin Durant’s Signature Line, the Nike Zoom KD12 ‘Aunt Pearl’


Nike Zoom KD12 'Aunt Pearl'

Basketball fans know of the special bond that Kevin Durant shared his late Aunt Pearl, who unfortunately passed away from lung cancer in 2000. Durant has taken the opportunity to pay homage to his late aunt with his signature sneakers. Since the initial colorway that released in 2012, the ‘Aunt Pearl’ edition has become an annual staple of the line. Each pink in color, the special colorway is released in partnership with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund to help raise awareness about all cancers affecting women and to drive funding for cancer research. This year’s edition of the ‘Aunt Pearl’ is something special, as it pulls detailing from previous colorways and puts them together for all-new, comprehensive look. Below is where each detail of the Nike Zoom KD12 ‘Aunt Pearl’ was pulled from:

  • The pearl graphic on the collar foam from the KD4
  • The sock liner graphic from the KD5
  • The medial heel graphic from the KD6
  • The strap from the KD7
  • The lateral heel graphic from the KD8
  • The heel embroidery from the KD9
  • The material on the tongue, collar and Nike Swoosh from the KD10
  • The outsole marbling from the KD11
