As the NBA season is just around the corner, Brooklyn Nets‘s star Kevin Durant gears up for the new season with continuous releases of his Nike lineup. His latest iteration continues a tradition he began in 2012, where he celebrates his beloved aunt who died of lung cancer in 2000. The latest offering of the Nike KD 15 “Aunt Pearl” arrives in an all-pink iteration.

The shoe comes dressed in the signature pink color blocking and special details to remember his AUnt Pearl and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The shoe is made with a mix of materials including mesh, suede and rubber. Floral embroidery is seen all over the shoe, as well as a marbelized graphic for the underfoot. His KD branding is seen on the tongue and the Swoosh is highlighted in a pink mosaic pattern.

Take a look above at the latest Nike KD 15 “Aunt Pearl” slated to release in select retailers and on Nike in the coming weeks for $160 USD. All proceeds of the special edition shoe will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
