Elena Delle Donne's debut basketball shoe invites everyone to step in and take a shot at the game. Made for all athletes of all abilities, it has a collapsible heel and a large strap, so you can get in and lock in with 1 hand. Full-length Nike Air cushioning plus a forefoot Zoom Air unit give you an optimal blend of bounce and energy return to help you feel fresh all game long. This '80s-basketball-era look draws inspiration from Elena’s basketball journey and blends it with 1 of her favorite chapters in Nike basketball lore.
Behind the Design
Red, white and blue have been constants in Elena’s life. Throughout an illustrious career that’s seen championships, medals and endless accolades whether it’s in the pros, at the grassroots level or representing her country, she’s found success while draped in those 3 colors. Mix that alluring trio with our '80s basketball look, an Elena favorite, and you have a style rooted in Delle Donne dominance.
Step In, Strap Down and Go
Made with FlyEase technology, the heel of the shoe partially collapses when you step in, effectively widening the collar to make getting in extra easy. A large strap is connected to the laces and fastens to the side, letting you secure the fit with 1 hand.
Go the Distance
A full-length Nike Air unit is stitched to the upper to help reduce layers and overall weight while bringing the cushioning right up under your foot. There's also a forefoot Zoom Air unit that returns energy with every step. That spring and speed are enveloped in a soft injected foam for complete stability that can help you play at a high level for longer.
Pivot, Jab and Cut
The outsole pattern uses contoured lines that bend and deflect in multiple directions to help you gain traction and always feel connected to the court.
