WNBA star Elena Delle Donne is officially releasing her first signature shoe, the
Elle Donne’s first signature shoe uses Nike’s Flyease system that allows easy entry for wearers. It was important for Delle Donne to design a shoe that was inclusive for those who struggle with putting on shoes due to physical inhibitions. Her sister Lizzie was born with cerebral palsy and autism and has been an inspiration for the ease of wear designs. For additional comfort and responsiveness, Air Deldon uses the Air Strobel unit which spans across the entire foot-bed. Her logo is embroidered on the lockdown tabs at the ankle while her initials “EDD” is seen on the small forefoot flap.
The Nike Air Deldon is expected to release in September 2022 for $120 USD at select retailers and online at Nike.
Elsewhere in footwear, the Nike Dunk High draws inspiration from AMBUSH’s “Deep Royal Blue” release.
