A few days ago, Sneaker Room, a sneaker store located in Jersey City, New Jersey, announced an upcoming collaboration with athletic retailer, Nike. The two are joining forces to create the 2019 Breast Cancer shoe for the fast-approaching Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
The chosen shoe model is Nike’s React Element 87 sneakers which will appear in three color combinations: pink/pink, white/pink, and black/pink. The three styles each incorporate the color pink, the color associated with breast cancer awareness. In addition, each pair of sneakers will have an individual number to foster an unique touch to them along with the “SR Cares” and its slogan, “changing the world one sole at a time”.
Each style will have a different retail price. The pink/pink colorway will be retailing for $250 with only 525 pairs available for purchase. The white/pink sneaker will be $500 with only 126 limited pairs and the black/pink sneaker will be $1,000 with only 63 limited pairs with its Nike Swoosh is covered in Swarovski crystals. The shoes will be available at Sneaker Room’s store in Jersey City on Saturday at 11am along with limited quantities sold online at snkrrom.com. Pre-orders are currently available only for the white/pink and black/pink styles.
100% of the proceeds will be donated to Jersey City Medical Center.
