The company released more images of the shoes, which revealed the heartwarming story behind the shoes, other than Willie's love for the Wildcats. Cauley-Stein actually wore the shoes in honor of Blake Hundley, a huge Kentucky fan who lost his battle to cancer after the Cats' 2014-15 tournament run. The nine year old became close friends with Cauley-Stein after they met during Hudley's chemotherapy treatments. The duo formed a close bond, and Cauley-Stein even has a few tattoos in his friend's honor.

Willie Cauley-Stein has brought out some awesome new shoes for March Madness, and they honor his collegiate team.
