There are always collaborations when it comes to sneakers. Sometimes, however, the inspiration and purpose behind them is for a bigger and better cause than others. With the continued partnership between the Kay Yow Cancer Fund  and Nike Basketball is one that aims to help awareness for the ongoing fight against cancer that many people are familiar with, whether from their own experience or that of a loved one.

This year the Nike Air Max Soldier V and the Nike Hyperdunk 2011 are the two silhouettes that get the pink treatment. The combination of pink and white was seen in our Sneaker Watch coverage last week, as players showed their support for the fight against breast cancer. Two of the shoes highlighting the WNBA footwear were the Air Max Soldier V and the Nike Hyperdunk 2011 and they appear as this week’s wallpaper.

Earlier this week the Kay Yow x Nike Zoom Soldier V arrived at Eastbay and today the Nike Hyperdunk 2011 that was created in collaboration with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has arrived. These two silhouettes are the latest colorways in a steadily growing line of pink basketball shoes that are created with KYCF and Nike Basketball.

The Nike Hyperdunk 2011 is one of the most anticipated designs for 2011. It builds on the previous models of the Hyperdunk and includes Flywire technology, and a phylon midsole with forefoot Zoom Air cushioning, that together help keep the weight to an impressive 10.5 ounces. A 3D reinforced midfoot shank helps keep flex to a minimum when making sharp cuts. The herringbone pattern of the solid rubber outsole resides below and provides the traction.

Pink basketball shoes can only mean one thing. Nike Basketball and their partnership with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund is ready for a new design aimed to bring awareness to the world’s constant battle with cancer. Over the last few years a number have silhouettes have been used in this collaboration. This year, the Nike Hyperdunk 2011 and the Nike Zoom Soldier V receive the pink colorways and ribbon graphics that exemplify a noble cause.

If you’re not familiar with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, it’s an organization that began in partnership with The V Foundation and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association. Yow, the former coach of the NC State Women’s Basketball team and the Gold Medal winning Team USA in 1988, battled breast cancer for over 22 years before passing away in 2009. Her positive attitude in her health struggles and on the basketball court have been an inspiration to many.

This year, Nike will release two silhouettes in partnership with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The Zoom Soldier V is the first to arrive and is available now. It features a White and Pinkfire colorway with ribbon graphics on the ankle strap. The Soldier V features Air Max cushioning in the heel and Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot for a well balanced shoe according to our Zoom Soldier V Performance Review.
