The "Aunt Pearl" Nike KD VI disappeared within minutes of its 6 p.m. EST release on Nike.com this evening. It feels like the sneakers were never released, but people did get their pairs. But a lot didn't, and they went to Twitter to vent their rage at the release.
This could be the biggest hype ever for a floral-print sneaker. The sneakers, which are made in remembrance of Kevin Durant's late Aunt Pearl and to help the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, have caused a dilemma: Is it even possible to buy release-date sneakers on Nike.com anymore?
Some people would beg to differ. Here's Twitter Reacts to the Nike KD VI "Aunt Pearl" Release.
