Leading sportswear company, Nike is known for their constant collaborations with relevant athletes, especially NBA players. However, it is very rare for them to create a sneaker for WNBA players, or female athletes in general. Which is why Skylar Diggins’ latest accomplishment is so important. On May 7th on Nike.com, the sneaker will be released in limited quantity. Not only is this sneaker built for both women and men, it was specially designed with the help of Skylar’s mother.
Diggins developed a major fan base during her stint as the starting Point Guard on her college ball team at Notre Dame. After being drafted into the WNBA on the Tulsa Shock and nationally appreciated by rapper Drake in and ode of his love for her, we can no longer deny the talented ball players’ star power. Now, the star player who’s led her team to a record of 130–20, is bringing some womanly flair to the Nike shelves.
Congratulations to the beautiful Skylar Diggins for breaking barriers as a female athlete at only 25-years-old. #PYNKGirlApproved
