Back on October 2, 1996 Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer. Through his strength, courage, and dedication to spreading awareness and keeping hope alive for millions of individuals affected by the disease, he founded the Lance Armstrong Foundation one year later.

Over these past 15 years, not only has the Lance Armstrong foundation served as inspiration to the lives of many, but it has also continued as an outlet for various collaboration projects with companies such as Nike. Playing an intricate role in the success of the foundation, Nike will team up with the LIVESTRONG foundation to create the Nike Air Max 2012 LIVESTRONG.

Perhaps you’ve seen someone wearing the yellow LIVESTRONG wristbands or even black and yellow themed LIVESTRONG apparel. Yes? Well, the “15 Ways to LIVESTRONG” campaign will continue its efforts with the introduction of its latest running sneaker. Sporting a new sleek design, this Nike Air Max 2012 will feature a sharp black and grey colorway with contrasting yellow lace tips. Despite its simplicity, the sneaker will most likely still gain the attention of many foundation supporters and sneaker enthusiasts alike upon release.
