Kevin Durant will continue his Breast Cancer Awareness-focused "Aunt Pearl" series of sneakers for his latest signature silhouette, the Nike KD 9. The KD 9 "Aunt Pearl" is scheduled to release on Jan. 21 via Nike SNKRS, with a wider release happening on Jan. 28.

Durant references his late relative with the shoes as a way to remember her legacy.

"I made a promise to myself to always honor my Aunt Pearl for the example she set, and the encouragement she gave me to follow my dreams," said Durant of the KD 9 colorway in a blurb at Nike.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these Kevin Durant sneakers will go to benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
