Before LeBron James laced up the orange-based "Galaxy" Nike LeBron 9 in this year's NBA All-Star Game, the ladies of the WNBA made orange their official All-Star Game color in 2011. To match the Western Conference's orange uniforms, Nike and the LeBron signature team issued this special Player Exclusive colorway of the LeBron 8 V/2 for Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi to wear in the game. The shoe features an orange synthetic and mesh upper, accented by black on the Swoosh logos, laces and midsole. White appears on the figure-8 lace eyelets, Swoosh border and teams up with orange on the outsole to finish off the look.
