The host state for the 2018 WNBA All-Star Game is front and center for the event’s footwear collection from Nike, featuring special Minnesota-inspired colorways of six basketball shoes.
Purple — the color of royalty, of the state’s football team, and of its musical hero — is consistent throughout the PE collection. 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.”
Check out all six of the Nike Basketball PE colorways below, and look for them to debut during the 2018 WNBA All-Star Game that is set to tip off on July 28th in Minnesota.
