Candace Parker has been making big moves since her WNBA debut. Not only is she currently averaging 17.7 ppg along with 9.2 boards (On July 6th she dropped 31 points 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks on the Phoenix Mercury), but she was selected to the U.S. Women’s Senior National Team and has inked a plethora of endorsement deals. The other “CP3” will be the new face for Gatorade as well as have her own signature adidas performance shoe.
We got a hold of her new kicks and they’re pretty hot. Draped in the L.A Lakers/Sparks’ purple and yellow colorway the shoe boasts star-like embroidery which goes along with the Lakers/Sparks theme. Adding to the aesthetic appeal is Candace’s nickname “Ace,” which graces the support strap across the front of the sneaker.
Definitely a hot shoe. If she wears them in the Olympics it will be interesting to see what special make-up adidas creates for her.
If you’re a guy, would you ever play ball in a WNBA player’s signature shoe?
