By August 29, 2023Nike, Sneakers

Nike-KD-16-Aunt-PearlThe legend Kevin Durant is back again with the all-new KD 16 Aunt Pearl edition. The Aunt Pearl sneakers are no newcomers to the scene. The sneakers have been around since 2012 as a tribute to Durant’s aunt, who unfortunately passed away from breast cancer. So now, once again, a new design and colorway of the infamous line is finally dropping. Hyping up all fans to snatch this pair.

The New KD 16 Aunt Pearl

There is no doubt that Kevin Durant is one of the biggest names in the NBA. And with the next season getting people all hyped up, the star is also getting ready to release his newest Nike signature sneakers, the KD 16. 

News of the release travelled fast and already multiple colorways made their way online. But one of the signature KDs is the Aunt Pearl line which has been in production since 2012. This line is a tribute from Kevin Durant to his late aunt who sadly passed away from breast cancer.

This tribute started with the KD 4 and has been one of the most beloved Nike initiatives in showing support and raising awareness of breast cancer. The sneakers boast two pink shades across its upper and a pale pink hue across its tongues. With mesh underlays and textured midsole molds while distributing hot pink accents towards the eyelets, heel icon, and mid-foot molds.

Moreover, tiny rear swooshes appear in pure white, and flora graphics are etched into the protective wraparound paneling, giving tribute to Aunt Pearl. Another hidden gem in the KD 16 Aunt Pearl is the sock liners, which reference both Durant’s aunt and Sandra Kay Yow, the Naismith Hall of Famer who passed from breast cancer in 2009. 

The sneaker is set to release on October 14th via Nike SNKRS at a price of $170. 

How To Cop These Kicks?

The KD 16 Aunt Pearl sneakers are gonna be one of the hottest in the market. And fans cannot wait to get their hands on a pair. Some people will definitely try to cop more than just a pair for their reselling business. The previous KD15 Aunt Pearl made a literal fortune on the aftermarket for those who copped. And with these aesthetics, we can’t expect anything less from this year’s version.

Now, the easiest way to claim a pair or more is using a sneaker bot. Sneaker bots are a sure way to claim a spot on release day as we all know how brutal it gets with the whole world joining in on the hype. Newcomers can even join cook groups to get introduced to the world of sneakers and help you start your own collection or even help you become a good sneaker reseller
