I want to give you the origin of the term, “Throwback Thursday”. It’s actually a sneaker term started by one of my favorite blogs and stores, Nice Kicks. They use it to chronicle past sneakers from the 1990s and further back than that. I’m going to use the concept as more of a catalog of sneakers that I personally own. My first entry is definitely unique and a shoe I only wear to one place, College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.

The Dallas Wings moved to Dallas in 2016 from Oklahoma from where they were known as the Tulsa Shock. One of the players, Skylar Diggins-Smith was given the opportunity to have her own Player Edition or PE made available for retail.

The shoe features a bright orange/pinkish mesh upper with a black Nike Zoom midsole and a marble colored outsole. The inside straps feature Skylar’s number as well as something her mom always told her growing up, ” You Do You”. It’s an awesome shoe and a sweet tribute to her mother, Renee. Skylar is currently wearing the shoe on the court this season.

Diggins-Smith is currently signed to PUMA as a female ambassador and with the revamp of Puma Basketball, it probably won’t be long before they sign Diggins-Smith to their basketball division and give her a shoe of her own.

Editor’s Note: I’ve added more to the article and forgot to add that the photographs are of me wearing the shoe and were taken on the floor of College Park Center, home of the Dallas Wings, and on the campus of the University of Texas in Arlington. June 30, 2018
