Beginning in 2012, the Aunt Pearl collection pays tribute to Kevin Durant's late Aunt Pearl who battled against breast cancer. The Aunt Pearl collection is affiliated with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting all cancers affecting women. The Aunt Pearl collection is often found in pink and white and has become a staple in every Kevin Durant lineup. The pink colorways of the Aunt Pearl spin-offs are dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness, which is why this KD 16 will likely release in October, which Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
