With the month of October serving as a 31-day reminder of the ongoing fight against breast cancer, sneaker brands have repeatedly stepped up to the plate, particularly in recent years, to bring awareness of the disease to the forefront. On the last day of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 2013, take a look back at ten of our favorite silhouettes that have donned panels of pink and the pink BCA ribbon in an effort to raise funds and recognition for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Nike Air Max Zoom Soldier V “Kay Yow”
Originally releasing alongside the Nike LeBron 8, the Nike Air Max Zoom Soldier V features a number of design characteristics imported from its signature couterpart, including hidden Dynamic Flywire and a similar tongue and lacing system. Despite shortening the Air Max unit, the silhouette makes up for the loss with a cross ankle strap. Ultimately, the Zoom Soldier V was seen on courts everywhere. Building upon that popularity, the platform was perfect for a “Kay Yow” colorway.
