Nike did do a breast cancer awareness themed line of basketball shoes a few years back. Pink was/is going to be a trending color for 2013 and Nike knows that. Nike knows that the trends are a year in advance and incorporate that into some of the designs.
"I can relate. If Nike advertised that they were donating a percentage of the proceeds from each shoe toward breast cancer research, that would be appreciated, and the design would indeed have meaning and purpose! Missed opportunity for Nike in my opinion."
It's myopic (not on your part AlfaAce, in general) to think a billion dollar company is going to do that despite what we all hope these big businesses will do. If they're going to create something like that it would be a limited edition and charge twice as much to recoup operating costs.
