Nike is advancing their existing collaboration with Washington Mystics star Elena Delle Donne with a new colorway for their recently premiered Nike Air Deldon shoe.
The new Elena Delle Donne x Nike Air Deldon colorway is set to hit sneaker stores in the coming weeks. Although an official release date has yet to be announced, these functional shoe models will retail for $120 a pair.
Interested readers will be able to purchase them from Nike’s online store, alongside other partner Nike Basketball outlets.
Elena Delle Donne x Nike Air Deldon Appears In Mismatched Makeup With Blue And Black Overlays
WNBA legend Elena Delle Donne has always put pluralism and connectedness at the top of her on-court designs with the Swoosh label. In 2019, she unveiled the Air Zoom UNVRS slip-on slip-on design.
For the uninitiated, Della’s sister, who was born with autism, cerebral palsy and blindness, has continued to inspire the player throughout her daily life. Therefore, Della’s first signature shoe, Nike Air Deldon 1, paid a heartfelt tribute to his sister and those around the world without the easy access of sneakers.
Nike Air Deldon, Elena Delle Donne’s first signature shoe, was unveiled the previous month. The sneakers were designed with everyone’s needs in mind and included Nike’s original Flyease technology for accessibility.
As a champion for everyone, Delle Donne has made sure people with physical limitations, like her sister, who struggles to put on conventional shoes, have the basketball gear they can rely on. Along with these features, the silhouette has been loaded with performance-enhancing details to ensure it’s ready for the court.
Air Deldon now comes in a color scheme consisting of mostly blue and gray tones, as opposed to the sneaker’s original hue, which featured a mint green.
The new variation of the recently launched silhouette, which was worn during the 2022 WNBA season, has been officially confirmed. The pair features a Summit White/Indigo Storm/Pure Platinum color scheme.
Here, the “Pure Platinum” and “Summit White” nylon tabs angle down for easy entry and are joined by a blue support tab. Next, the “Indigo Storm” hue is evident on the added swooshes to the lateral sides, speckled mudguard, and on the mesh heel counters. Blue accents can also be spotted on the rubberized counter, which features a tiny black swoosh.
The tonal spectrum is highlighted by yellow lace ties loaded with multicolored speckles throughout and rear pull tabs attached to the heel counters. Crimson Red and Blue “DDD” and “NIKE” branded tags are then tucked into the glossy black collar, which is followed by perforated mesh on the medial forefoot.
Rounding out the shoe, the sole features an Air Strobel unit across the entire sockliner for a responsive feel. Full uppers are color matched to the outsole for a clean composition.
Delle Donne’s iconic Nike Air Deldon trainers in the latest colorway are expected to be available in the coming weeks. The new sneakers will be sold through Nike’s online stores and exclusive Nike Basketball retail stores for $120.
