Nike has whipped up a special selection of heat for this weekend’s WNBA All-Star festivities, taking place in Minneapolis. Inspired by the host city, the pack includes the LeBron 15, LeBron Soldier XII, KD11, Kyrie 4, PG2, and Kobe A.D.
Purple shading is predominant throughout the assortment of PE’s, representative of the color of royalty, the state’s football team, and its musical hero, Prince. The two-block divide is a nod to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, while the ripple pattern points to the state’s vast number of lakes, as well as the waves being created in the modern women’s game.
In speaking on this year’s WNBA All-Star sneakers from Nike, Seimone Augustus of the Minnesota Lynx had this to say: “The All-Star shoes are fire across the board. I can’t wait to wear the Kyrie 4 and pay tribute to the land of 10,000 lakes.”
The 2018 WNBA All-Star Game takes place Saturday, July 28.
