We are getting the first look at the Nike KD 16 that is dedicated to the basketball star’s mom. The “Wanda” KD 16 features a mint green colorway — which is a nod to Wanda’s favorite color.
The release date and other details around the KD 16 sneakers have yet to be released.
Wanda is a motivational speaker and she runs the Durant Family Foundation.
Kevin memorably made his mother a key part of his acceptance speech when he was awarded the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award in 2014.
“The odds were stacked against us. Single parent with two boys by the time you were 21 years old,” Kevin said during his 2014 MVP acceptance speech. “We weren’t supposed to be here. You made us believe. You kept us off the street, put clothes on our backs, food on the table. When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate. You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP.”
KD recently dropped his “Aunt Pearl” KD 16 — which pays homage to his late Aunt Pearl. The first
“Aunt Pearl” colorways in the Nike KD line were released in 2012 through the KD 4.
