Nike designer Leo Chang’s inspiration for the new KD7 Aunt Pearl shoe came from Durant’s angel tattoo. Chang brought Harris’s artistry to the shoe with a three-dimensional angel wing strap, a print of the actual tattoo on the inside of the tongue and wing-pattern detailing on both gold Swoosh design logos. The subtle, pearlescent white-based shoe is intended to draw attention to its sculptural quality and one-of-a-kind forefoot strap. White is also the official color of lung cancer awareness.
This Nike KD 7 is dressed in a mixture of White, Metallic Gold, Pink Pow and Pure Platinum color scheme. Featuring an all-Whtie Hyperposite base with Metallic Gold detailing on the KD logo on the tongue as well as the Nike Swoosh on the tongue. Pink Pow accents are seen on the Flywire cables and it looks to appear on the insole. The shoe sits atop a Pure Platinum outsole to finish off the look. But the main detail of the shoe is the unique designed angel wing strap is the first three-dimensional, sculpted strap by Nike Basketball, which has a special memorable wording for KD’s late Aunt Pearl. Also, the inside of the strap carries a message for Aunt Pearl and all those who fight to find a cure. And graphic floral designed inner tongue and a Kay Yow Cancer Fund logo on the back heel.
