October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The annual campaign first launched in 1985 to increase awareness of the disease is impossible to miss with everyday life during the month turning a shade pink from co-workers wearing ribbons, to professional and college sports teams pulling on pink socks, to the White House being lit up in pink to show support.
World Soccer Shop, Kickasso, and Little Pink Houses of Hope have teamed up to give 2 lucky soccer players/fans the opportunity to take the message of hope and awareness to their local soccer field with a one-of-a-kind custom soccer cleat by Kickasso.
The proceeds raised from the auctioning of the 2 Nike Mercurial Vapor X cleats will go to Little Pink Houses of Hope. It is the 3rd year World Soccer Shop has worked with the charity to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness.
The Nike Mercurial Vapor x FG in Hyper Pink (place a bid on ebay) was an obvious choice for the first canvas. The solid pink upper was a perfect background for Kickasso to include a fluer-de-lis pattern on the front of the cleat while having angel wings with a pink awareness ribbon for the body on the lateral side of the heel. The cleat is size 9.
Kickasso selected the Nike Mercurial Vapor X Leather FG in Black/Hyper Pink (place a bid on ebay) as the 2nd colorway to work with for auction. The more traditional cleat with a primarily black upper makes a bold statement with the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon painted across the lateral side of cleat and over the toe. On the medial side, Kickasso used the Nike Swoosh as the basis for a second Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon while keeping the instep the solid black of the leather along with the series number and his signature. These cleats are size 10.
These cleats are a one-of-a-kind piece of art but are ready to hit the pitch for game action. Kickasso shoes have been worn by players such as the Houston Texans Arian Foster, Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James, many other athletes, and other A-list celebrities.
Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is the face of the Nike Mercurial Vapor silo and is known to make bold statements with his colorways along with his play on the field. Let @Cristiano know this is the perfect pair of cleats to add to his collection while helping out a great cause!
Bid on both these one-of-a-kind cleats on ebay – the Nike Mercurial Vapor x FG in Hyper Pink – and the Nike Mercurial Vapor X Leather FG in Black/Hyper Pink Both auctions run through Monday, November 2.
