Continuing our look at rare Nike LeBron 8 V/2 samples courtesy of GotKickz and MySoleToKeep, we dive into the pair that was created for WNBA players to wear during the league's Breast Cancer Awareness Month last August. The shoe was worn by Diana Taurasi and Swin Cash, who lost an aunt to the disease. As you'd expect, the shoe's upper is dominated by pink synthetic materials and mesh, while white tumbled leather runs along the eyestay. White also works the tongue and Swoosh logos, which are bordered by Metallic Silver trim. Pink reappears on the lion logo and lace tips, leaving a white Max Air unit and sole to cap off the look below.
