With Coaches vs. Cancer and Nike Basketball's Kay Yow partnership taking center stage this month, Kevin Durant serves up our first look at the "Aunt Pearl" Nike KD V.

The shoe pays tribute to Kevin's late aunt, who tragically lost her battle with breast cancer. This time around, white dominates the shoe's Hyperfuse-constructed upper, while the unique pink 'pearl' pattern is shifted to the tongue and inner lining. Pink also works the laces, Swoosh branding, Max Air bag and outsole, while Kay Yow's upside down 'Y' ribbon adorns the medial ankles.

No drop date for this pair at the moment, but if it follows last year's patter, expect a release sometime this spring. More details on the "Aunt Pearl" V as they emerge.
