The "Aunt Pearl" colorway is back.

The Nike KD 16 is a basketball shoe designed in collaboration with NBA superstar Kevin Durant. It features lightweight and supportive construction, providing excellent stability on the court. The shoe incorporates Nike's advanced technology, including a responsive cushioning system that offers optimal comfort and impact protection. With its durable materials and well-designed traction pattern, the KD 16 delivers reliable performance for basketball players of all levels. One notable colorway of the Nike KD 16 is the "Aunt Pearl" edition. This colorway holds special significance as it pays tribute to Kevin Durant's late aunt, who passed away due to lung cancer.

The "Aunt Pearl" colorway often incorporates soft colors, floral patterns, and elements to honor Durant's aunt and raise awareness for cancer research. The design serves as a reminder of the impact of cancer on individuals and their loved ones. By releasing the "Aunt Pearl" colorway with each new KD model, Nike and Kevin Durant aim to support charity organizations and raise funds for cancer research. The colorway has become highly sought after by fans and collectors, not only for its visual appeal but also for the important message it carries within the sneaker community.
