Cancer is a disease that knows no boundaries, be it race, sex, age, religion, and etc… While modern medicine has reverse the tide of battle somewhat, this stubborn foe won’t be easily dispatch just yet, making it all the more important to raise funding for research at a constant pace. In honoring his late aunt as he did annually on Valentine’s Day, Kevin Durant along with Nike Basketball created the KD V “Aunt Pearl”. Embossed all-over with the winged icon in tonal white, the distinctive KD 5 features a pink Nike Swoosh with a stained-glass applique. The same design repeats itself along the tongue and sockliner as well.
The KD V “Aunt Pearl” will make its debut tonight along with the rest of 2013 Kay Yow Collection when the UConn Women’s Basketball go against the Baylor Lady Bear Basketball. In the meantime, the 2013 Kay Yow Collection is now available for sale with all proceeds going to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The KD V “Aunt Pearl” is expected to launch in the weeks ahead.
