adidas Celebrates Candace Parker Day With Special-Edition Collection
For over a decade Candace Parker has been one of the most dominant forces in sports and this collection is just one way to reflect on her legendary career while elevating women in sport. To coincide with the apparel launch, the City of Chicago proclaimed September 16 Candace Parker Day.
After slamming her way into the record books with the first-ever dunk in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, Parker has trailblazed her way to being the face of the WNBA and NBA 2K22 cover star. The six-time All-Star is the first and only player to win Rookie of the Year and MVP in the same year and is one of the most decorated athletes as a WNBA champion, two-time Gold Medalist, and an award-winning baller.
The collection arrives in inclusive sizing showing that sports truly belong to everyone with high-performance apparel and footwear, leading with a custom Exhibit (A)ce Low silhouette. The sneaker’s three dynamic colorways represent key chapters in Parker’s life, including tributes to her late college coach, as well as her daughter, who represents the next generation of culture-shifters.
Grab a look at the collection in action just below, and look for the Candace Parker Collection to become available for purchase beginning September 23rd, in stores and online at both adidasand DICK’S Sporting Goods. Prices range from $16-$180 USD.
