The phrase is signed with momma Skylar’s nickname for her daughter, “Shug.”

Skylar cites her mother as her biggest influence who led by example to teach her the importance of hard work.

“Growing up, my mom was my biggest role model – the biggest influence that I had,” Skylar told Nike. “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.” She says she wanted to include the phrase on the shoes as a reminder of her mother’s encouraging words that have helped carry her throughout her career in professional sports and in life.
The special edition Nike Hyperrev PE are now available for purchase.
