A couple weeks ago, Nike gathered a who’s who of the best women’s basketball players on the planet past and future: 2015 WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne, the legendary Sheryl Swoopes, 2015 WNBA ROY Jewell Loyd,Chiney Ogwumike and Sue Bird. The reason? The unveiling of the brand’s new basketball performance apparel collection, designed for women by women.
The 2015 Nike Elite Women’s Basketball Collection caters to the premier female athlete—no more rolling up sleeves or adjusting shorts because you’re wearing men’s gear, this collection is designed to fit perfectly for women.
Available now at Nike.com and select retail outlets, the collection includes a Nike Women’s Elite Basketball short, hoodie, pant and tank, all tailored for on-court performance, optimal mobility and lightweight comfort.
SLAM’s Alexis Morgan (@alexiskmorgan) was in the building for the collection’s launch event, including an on-court wear-test. Watch the video above to hear from all the WNBA players in attendance and to get a closer look at the apparel.
