Nike's WNBA All-Star Game collection inspired by Prince, the Vikings and all things Minnesota.
Nike has officially unveiled the 2018 WNBA All-Star Game PE Collection, including six different signature sneakers featuring colorways inspired by all things Minnesota, the host city of the All-Star Game.
Purple, the color of royalty, of the state’s football team, and of its musical hero, Prince, is consistent throughout the exclusive collection. According to Nike, the two-block divide reflects a play between the Twin Cities, Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The ripple pattern refers to the state's vast number of lakes, as well as the waves being created in the modern women's game.
"The All-Star shoes are fire across the board," says four-time WNBA champion Seimone Augustus of the Minnesota Lynx. "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 PE collection includes special colorways of the LeBron 15, LeBron Soldier XII, KD11, Kyrie 4, PG2, and the Kobe A.D. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Nike has plans to release any of these special edition colorways.
Look for these kicks to hit the court during the WNBA All-Star Game tomorrow afternoon, July 28, at 3:30pm ET, airing on ABC.
