Diana Taurasi is already regarded as the best women’s basketball player to lace ’em up. If you still don’t believe that, you can take notes for consideration by looking at the details of her next personal edition Nikes set to release Friday.
The Phoenix Mercury star will drop another LeBron 18 exclusive dubbed “GOAT Vision.” That’s GOAT, the acronym for greatest of all time.
Nike is releasing a new LeBron 18 next week celebrating Diana Taurasi, dubbed “GOAT Vision” and featuring her career achievements.

The light green tones are stunning themselves, but the tongue is where the details get fun.
Newspaper clippers mark many of Taurasi’s career accomplishments, and the sole inserts include Taurasi’s basketball goat icon.

The shoes are expected to retail for $200 this Friday and are the second recent Nike release of LeBron 18 personal editions for the Mercury guard.
In July, Taurasi released a “La Cabra” edition of the kicks, which also recounted her accomplishments on the hardwood but did so with nods to her Italian and Argentinian roots. “La cabra” is Spanish for “the goat.”
