Elena Delle Donne has taken over the WNBA.
Though the Chicago Sky were recently eliminated from the 2016 WNBA playoffs, Delle Donne had a fantastic campaign. The 6-foot-5 guard/forward averaged 21.5 points, 7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
She’s just 27 years old, but Delle Donne’s accolades are piling up fast. She’s a three-time WNBA All-Star. She was the 2013 WNBA Rookie of the Year. She’s made the All-WNBA First Team twice. She won the league’s MVP award in 2015. She recently won her first Olympic gold medal at the Rio Olympics. Now, Nike is honoring Delle Donne with her own special edition shoe.
The Delle Donne Hyperdunk 2016 is a player exclusive colorway of this year’s Hyperdunk silhouette. The shoe features technology such as Flyknit and a dynamic Zoom Air cushioning system. Delle Donne’s model features a white and Hyper Jade color scheme in a personalized pattern than includes outlines of Delaware (her home state) and phrases such as “Path Less Traveled” and “No Excuses.” The inside sole of the shoe also features a replica of a tattoo Delle Donne has that’s dedicated to her sister Lizzie.
The shoes aren’t yet available for retail, but they’re expected to drop some time before the end of the year.
