Since we first laid our eyes on the KD 6 Supreme ‘Aunt Pearl,’ we knew these were going to catch on like wildfire. Similarly to the various “What the ?” kicks, many rebuked Nike for choosing a softer edge theme for basketball trainers, but sneakerheads have been coming around to the idea of the concept. Philippines-based sneaker artist, Alberto Lou, is now taking on both of the latest themes from Nike, with his own Hyperdunk 2013.
The Nike Hyperdunk 2013 Low ‘What the Aunt Pearl” customs by Alberto Lou are cloaked in shades of pink in floral and geometric prints. The right shoe draws most of its inspiration from the original KD 6 ‘Aunt Pearl’ shoes, with a hand-painted floral print that engulfs the entire front. On the left, we see a geometric pattern of various shaded pink triangles, that come together to create squares, while on the back side, a surprising blue floral pattern dominates. The tongues feature black and blue panels, that have white crossed-bows; a famous symbol for cancer survival.
Another great job from Alberto Lou, of the Kicks Flipped squad! The whole team has been on a roll with their customs lately, and we can’t wait to see more. Get a peek at some close-up shots of the hand painted work Lou did with these Hyperdunks down below!
