Skylar Diggins's existence may be quite a bit different from our own every days lives (raise your hand if you're a basketball star for the Dallas Wings, a talented athlete, and a Nike endorsed pro...anyone?), but she's in the same book as the rest of us when it comes to one thing: she loves her mama.

As we all get set to celebrate Mom this Mothers Day, Skylar is kicking it up a notch by honoring her beloved mom, Renee, with this special Nike Zoom HyperRev 2016 PE - that's 'Players Edition,' guys.  While basketball shoes aren't my go-to sneaks, I do love a sneaker that comes equipped with originality.  The shoe features personal details including a special sentiment ("You Do You") printed on the inside of the strap as a reminder of her mother’s dedication and guidance, a small "4 Shug" printed on the opposite strap - which is both a nod to Skylar's jersey number and a reference to the nickname given to her by her mother.

All of the feels!

With a bright orange upper paired with 3M reflective piping and a pristine marble outsole, these are sure to catch your eye when Skylar returns to the court this year.

Said Diggins of the shoe:

Growing up, my mom was my biggest role model – the biggest influence that I had,” Skylar says. “She showed me the epitome of what I wanted to be as a woman when I grew up, and showed me what hard work was like.
