The official images on the sneaker, gathered here, come with an explanation of the winged features on the strap. That detail is a reference to the tattoo across Durant's back that is a tribute to his late Aunt Pearl, a woman whose sneaker tributes have become a mainstay in Durant's Nike line. The inside of the tongue also features a more direct port of the tattoo's intricate drawing.
The KD 7 "Aunt Pearl" release date is Feb. 19, and the sneaker should launch at the standard 10 am EST time on Nikestore.
