Over the summer, Nike and NBA star player Kevin Durant held a special preview event for the unveiling of the KD 9, the latest signature sneaker from Durant's line with the Swoosh. Since then, the sportswear brand and KD have released multiple iterations of the shoe, and today, Nike unveils a new iteration of the KD 9, set for an early 2017 release.

Continuing to pay homage to his Aunt Pearl, who died from Cancer, Kevin Durant gets inspired once again to recreate the “Aunt Pearl” series with the upcoming release of this KD 9. Dressed in a black nubuck and mesh upper, this pair features hits of bright pink on the Swoosh logo, toe front and Zoom Air Unit. A few highlights of this pair that standout are the embroidered ribbon featured on the side heel as well as the pink ribbon on the heel tab and the pink branded insoles.

While this version of the Nike KD 9 “Aunt Pearl” has yet to receive a release date, make sure to check back with XXL to find out more info on the release this pair of KD sneakers as well as other product from Nike.
